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.
