Last night Elyssa and I went to see Paul Merton's Impro Chums at the Brighton Dome. Alongside Paul was Lee Simpson, Jim Sweeney, Richard Vranch and Suki Webster (who I'd also seen a few years ago in Eddie Izzard's One Word Improv at Tunbridge Wells). It was mostly hilarious stuff - with Lee, Jim and Richard being in particularly good form. Crying laughter of the night was provided by the three gentlemen acting as one person, each saying the next word in a sentence while Paul Merton interviewed them on the Olympic sport of badger throwing. All improvisations came from places, names and ideas suggested by the audience. Great fun, and recommended if you get the chance. You can read another blog review here.
