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. 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 improv is similar whilst mostly white, nerdy, middle-class males  prancing about on stage – including Louie Christie.

As a lone adventurer at heart, typically Louie would never join the sort of team that would have him as a member 👃 but Louie does occasionally perform live improv with his friends in: We Got Game, Story Kitchen, The Inflatables, Wilmops – The Wilmington Arms Players, The Good Improv Show, Bubble milk.

He has studied improv in the UK, Canada and Turkey. He has slowly worked his way through most of the improv courses and classes in London. Like some sort of train-spotter. These include: The Free Association, London Improv Theatre, Story KitchenShoot From The Hip, Monkey Toast, Hoopla, Abandoman, Spontaneity Shop, Imprology, Crunchy Frog Collective, Hooray Henry.1

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