Impro Chums: Paul Merton, Mike McShane, Lee Simpson, Richard Vranch, Suki Webster
Following an extensive tour of the UK and a season in London’s West End in Out Of My Head – his first stand up show for over 12 years - Paul Merton will be setting out on a brand new tour this autumn with his world renowned Impro Chums and some special guests.
Paul and his chums, Mike McShane, Lee Simpson, Richard Vranch and Suki Webster will create a new and unique comedy show every single night, based entirely on suggestions from the audience, their own finely honed improvisational skills and an almost manic compulsion to show off.
They are a unique, vintage blend of experience and inventiveness.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
This event takes place at Colston Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
He has a dry wit and a talent for bizarre but hilarious trains of thought. Best known for his TV appearances as a team captain on the topical news show, 'Have I Got News For You', and as the presenter of 'Room 101'.

Lee Simpson is a remarkable improviser. As well as his twice weekly appearances with the Comedy Store Players, he finds himself writing plays with Phelim McDermott for the Nottingham Playhouse and the Royal Court, and spending time in Tu'penny Ha'penny Theatre - making small, odd productions that stretch the definition of theatre and the credulity of the audience, invariably presented by the company of which he is co-Artistic Director, Improbable.
