Shellshock Improvised Comedy


The society was started at the beginning of the academic year 2002/2003. Since then it has grown in size and has put on a variety of shows, highlights of the 2007/2008 year include performing at the Durham Drama Festival and a college tour of across Durham during the post-exam period.

During 2008/2009 the society grew further with many new members, in August 2009 the society made its first visit to the Edinburgh Fringe festival, with ShellShock! performing long form improvised comedy called VaryTales, inspired by Fairy Tales. The show was a remarkable success for a debut show, with Five sell out shows and ShellShock! being featured in the Three Weeks Fringe preview paper.

In 2010 the society returned to the Fringe with the new long form Adventure based show : To Be Continued! the show was down as one of the "Top 5 Improv acts at the Fringe" - The List. It achieved good success with the audiences, and has just repeated its success in this regard with its latest Edinburgh show "Mission: Suggestible"
