Tell us about your group
Nick Oram: About half of Do Not Adjust Your Stage met at university where we were the founders of another Impro group (The Shrimps) which is still going strong today. The other half are other fantastic improvisers we have met along the way in London. We formed Do Not Adjust Your Stage about a year ago and are bloody loving it.
Tell us about your show
Our show is exciting, fun, sexy, and bombastic. Seriously though, I think you'll like it.
How did you discover improvisation?
Most of us were taught by an astro-physicist called Demitri Muna (real name). He moved from the US to Sheffield to look for dark matter. He never found dark matter but he did teach us everything we know.
What's the most memorable improvisation you have seen or been part of?
At this festival when Shaun fell off the stage, Nick broke a light and Luke ran away.
List 3 things you learnt (or bits of advice you’ve received) that made you a better improviser.
1. Don't fall off the stage.
2. Don't break a light.
3. If you do either of the above, then do run away.
Recommend a book on improvisation...
Unfortunately none of us read improv books. We're waiting for the film.
