Ones To Watch 2023 – INTERVIEW – Your Flaws The Musical

It is that time of the year where we celebrate the acts that you need to keep an eye on in 2023. It is an exciting time of the year as it means we can talk to acts to find out what they have in store for audiences and what you can look forward to in the new year. Today we speak to the musical improv show Your Flaws The Musical to find out all about the shows they have in store for 2023.

Hello tell us all about your improv troupe?

We are a musical-improv act that will take a pet-peeve or a shortcoming from an audience member and makes up a whole new musikal about it. Sometimes we even solve it. We who play in it are: Lee Apsey (CSI: Crime Scene Improvisation, Multiverse Musical, Tony Slattery’s Crimes Against Improv) Emma Wessleus (Mordsaga, Multiverse Musical, Easy Laughs) And jazz savant Patrick Clopon (Live Pianist at 4 and 5 star venues including: Dorsett, Cafe Royal, Crowne Plaza, Royal Navy Club. Creator of “Patrick Plays Piano.”)

How did your troupe come about?

Emma: Me and Lee have worked together before in other groups. Lee knew Patrick from before and as me and lee wanted to do a twoprov we met up with him and jammed. After that we didn’t stop jamming and now we are a solid improv group!

How did you get into improv?

I got into improv as I was studying opera at the conservatory and needed something fun and lighthearted to do on the side. I’d done stand up before but absolutely fell in love with Improv as a comedy art form, and now I do more improv than singing…

What are your plans improv wise for 2023?

We are hoping to do some more gigs in the UK. We were lucky enough to do a lot of touring in Europe last year and we hope that that will continue as well.

What other improv acts are you looking forward to seeing perform online or in person to this year?

Showstoppers are always just such a phenomenal treat to watch. Hotel Michele is so quick and funny, CSI crime scene improv is lovely and there’s a new show called “Magic and Improv” with magicians doing improv at hoopla that we are excited to watch and take part in!


What styles do you hope to see more of in improv this year?

Fun formats that don’t take themselves too seriously! JOY!
