Australia’s best improvisers battle it out for gold… and glory!

About this event

When Cutthroat Impro hits the decks this September at The Butterfly Club, The Big HOO-HAA! Melbourne’s hilarious crew of improvisers will find themselves in uncharted waters.

Most competitions give the winners their prize money at the end. But in Cutthroat Impro, each team of comedians gets their booty at the start. Are there strings attached? Absolutely. The teams can spend that money on sabotages – tricky rules, challenges and impediments that will make improvising a nightmare for their opposition.

Improvising doesn’t get any more treacherous than this. At Cutthroat Impro, expect high competition, high stakes, and highly entertaining impro comedy.

“Exhilarating... just be warned that one show might not be enough.” – Sometimes Melbourne


What time should I get there?

At least 30 minutes before the show. Our performances start bang on time and it takes a hot second to welcome you into the building.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The Butterfly Club is a licensed venue. Accordingly, patrons under 18 are only allowed on premises in the company of a parent or legal guardian.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We strongly encourage using public transport. The Butterfly Club is a short stroll from Flinders Street station and Melbourne Central, and an even shorter stroll from any tram that travels through Swanston or Collins Streets (get off at Town Hall).

If driving, you can find the best parking rates in the area by visiting (link opens in a new window).

How can I contact the venue with any questions?

Please call The Butterfly Club on 03 9663 8107 or reply to your email confirmation.

What's the refund policy?

If you can't attend for Covid-related reasons, you are entitled to a full refund provided you let us know ahead of time.

If the show is cancelled to comply with new restrictions or health directives, you will automatically get a full refund - no need to contact us.

Otherwise there are no refunds: exceptions are made in extraordinary circumstances at the Club's discretion. If there is a sensible reason why you should receive a refund, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. Our team have a record of all attendees updated in real time and will be able to let you in whether you bring a printed copy of your ticket or not.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes. It happens all the time. It's totally fine.
