It was the summer of 2016 when Lila Barmpa and Panagiotis Delavinias, shared the same thoughts about the creation of an Improv troupe. Passionate for the art of improv, they started working on this idea and one day Μη Μου Up Two became real. A duet where the actors improvise a completely different story every time, according to the audience’s inspiration.
Their theatrical journey began in spring of 2017 with their first show being hosted by the Avaton Theatre in “Improv Comedy Nights” a production of ImproVIBE's training center. The official launch of their theatrical debut was their run of shows at Vault Theatre Plus, titled "Remember How We Met?”.
One of the most important moments was their participation in the 1st Duet Yourself Festival, at the Alfa.Idea theatre, where they won second place along with their teachers, friend and colleagues Bus Και. The season ended with the presentation of their show “Nice2MeetYou” on the stage of Mt. Olymprov Festival, the 2nd Greek International Improv Festival.
This year's season began with a trip to Bulgaria and the presentation of their show "Nice2MeetYou" at the 2nd International Improv Festival in Sofia and their return to Athens finds them at Alfa.Idea Theatre with the show "Back2Back Improv - The story does NOT repeat itself."
