I fell in love with improv in 2014 and haven’t looked back since.
I perform with the Improv Duo Bendy House, the Dogface Harold Team and the Dogface Allstars, a short-form troupe. I also direct/perform with the trio, Dangerous Minds, and the ensemble The Guest.
Bendy House have completed three 14 day runs at the Edinburgh Festival, and we aim to return for a two week run in 2021. Bendy House performed throughout the Uk, at the International Copenhagen Improv Festival 2019, IO Chicago and at Second City, Chicago.
Get in touch if you want us to come and perform or coach.
I am a Dogface Improv senior coach, teaching improv, improv workshops and using improv in my wellbeing work. Dogface Improv run workshops, classes and drop ins, as well as perform and hold jams, see more here: https://www.dogfaceimprov.com/
I have recently finished performing in a non-improvised, scripted web series called You Know Carol, written by James Stedman and directed by RIchard McNally. You can find all 8 episodes on YouTube.
Character – how do we find character with just ourselves – the choices are endless.
What’s your go-to? – How do we stride to push ourselves out of our safe zone?
Duo’s – what can happen when there’s only two of us on stage? A great one for all those looking to work in a duo, or those wanting to gain more from their two person scenes.
