Real Positive Poles

Real Positive Poles are a group of award winning Bristol based improvisers with a passion for big ideas and science fiction. We take inspiration from your favourite shows to create brand new episodes based on audience suggestions. 

Our main show is currently “After Dusk: The Improvised Twilight Zone.” A dive into the the audience’s imagination in the style of The Twilight Zone, the 1960’s forerunner to Black Mirror. Sometimes dark, often mysterious and always fun!

We have performed at the Edinburgh, Brighton & Swindon Fringe Festivals as well as all over Bristol including at the Old Vic, in the crypt of St John and the Bristol Improv Theatre.

Past Shows

  • Spon Trek: The Next Improvisation,” a big, silly parody of Star Trek taking a suggestion of the episode title the audience always wanted to see and creating completely from scratch!
