Take a mix of some of the best improvisers from the festival add suggestions from ALL the audience to create a improvise mayhem with over 50 scenes created in an hour. Culminating in the amazing backwards narrative – telling a story from the end to the beginning. It’s a mad, fast, and exciting experience of on the spot creativity!

Tell us about your show

Its scenes! Lots and lots of scenes. Based on things written down by the audience. If there is no audience we will write down the things but its not so much fun.

 

How did you discover improvisation?

Through a friend at school. His name was William. Not sure what happened to him

 

What's the most memorable improvisation you have seen or been part of?

I’ve seen some stand ups improvise themselves out of tricky situations. I’ve also seen an audience member improvise a rap in a "rap off" with a comic and the punter was brilliant - no one was expecting it

 

List 3 things you learnt (or bits of advice you’ve received) that made you a better improvier.

1. Take risks.
2. Listen.
3. Don't recreate a past scene.

 

Recommend a book on improvisation...

I've never read one.
