Wisdom of Wombats

Finest improv in English in Zurich

About us

Who are the Wisdom of Wombats

We are a group of international performers based in Zurich, that create, organize and perform shows using improvisational theater in all its forms. We perform mainly in English. Our goal is to push our boundaries and in the improv spirit we always try to get out of our comfort zone.

Our shows range from a classic game based comedy show (in the style of Whose Line is it Anyway), to long form (think of it as a full theater piece, but completely unscripted) and other more experimental.

"Bloody brilliant, intermittently hysterical."

Bloody brilliant, intermittently hysterical. Great Zurich people from all over the world in action, in theater, in English to boot. A real delight – get behind it.

They found themselves in prehistoric times when dinosaurs still existed, in love and happily laying their eggs.The mission is to preserve humanity […]
