What is your Favourite:

Improv style:

Relationship and character based improv. We like playing out the absurdities that come from the everyday mundane. That’s what we enjoy playing anyway!

Short form game:

Andy recently learned ‘picket line’ from the Showstoppers’ course and Rachel loves it!

Improv act:

So many! One of our first headliners was Thunderclap and their style has definitely inspired us.

Film or television show:

We were both quite obsessed with the most recent series of ‘White Lotus’.

Venue to perform at:

We met at Hoopla but the Comedy Cabin is a spiritual home.

Way to wind down:

We have a hug and tell each other how amazing we are.

Way to warm up:

We always start a warm up with a very intense session of mirroring.


We love a deep and personal chat with our audience. The topic changes every show but we encourage our audience to share their deepest, darkest, secrets.

Show by another improv act:

Track 96 have performed with us since day 1 and we love them.

Part of rehearsing a show:

Mud water! Getting the crazy out of our system.

Thing about performing:

Getting into our flow and being totally absorbed by the scene. It can be meditative. The endless possibilities make performing improv so exciting.


‘What’s this really about?’ – we ask each other and ourselves when a scene is going downhill.

Thing about the improv industry at the moment:

The variety of style out there!

Thing about this year so far?

Bit wet… but it’s a new year
