Improv


– Video: Not strictly improv because, on video, live improv looks shit.*

Louie Christie performs improv, from time to time, with his friends, and his brother.

Comedy improv, not to be confused with stand-up comedy, is making up games, sketches, and longer bits, on the spot with no script. If you’ve ever seen the TV show ‘Who’s Line is it Anyway’ or the film ‘This Is Spinal Tap’, you know what it is.

London’s underground improv scene is similar whilst mostly white, nerdy, middle-class males  prancing about on stage, including Louie Christie.

As a lone adventurer at heart, typically Louie Christie would never join the sort of team that would have him as a member 👃 but Louie Christie does occasionally perform live improv with his friends in:

  • The Inflatables
  • Wildcard
  • We Got Game
  • Story Kitchen
  • Wilmops – The Wilmington Arms Players
  • The Good Improv Show
  • Bubble milk

He has studied improv in the UK, Canada, and Turkey. Louie Christie has slowly worked his way through most of the improv courses and classes in London. Like some sort of train-spotter.

These include:

  • Hoopla
  • The Free Association
  • Story Kitchen
  • Shoot From The Hip
  • Monkey Toast
  • Abandoman
  • Hoopla
  • Spontaneity Shop
  • Imprology
  • Crunchy Frog Collective
  • Hooray Henry1

Louie Christie also does stand-up comedycomedy drama and gonzo.
