About Sprout Ideas
Improvisation For Everyone
Creativity is within everyone... it's true! Many people believe that they are not 'the creative type', but everyone can be.
Improvisation involves creating something out of nothing.
Dave Bourn formed Sprout Ideas in 1998 and they’ve been refining creating something
from nothing ever since. Dave Bourn is also a writer director and performer, and has worked extensively with Stephen K Amos, directing 5 of his Edinburgh shows,
co-creating and devising 3 of them. He directed Felix Dexter’s show in 2008 and Carey Marx’s highly commended Edinburgh show Marry Me;
and in 2002 he directed Phil Nichols’ Perrier nominated show, Things I Like I Lick. He is currently developing
sitcoms with Laurence Clark, Chris McCausland, and
Zoë Abbott. Dave is also the owner of The Funny Side comedy clubs.
