Improve your Improv

Welcome to the world-famous Comedy Store, home not just to great stand-up comedy but to the world famous Comedy Store Players, co-founded by Mike Myers (Shrek, Austin Powers and Wayne’s World), Paul Merton and Neil Mullarkey. You will learn the skills that you so admired on Whose Line Is It Anyway.

Anybody can learn these skills - they are deceptively simple. Indeed, the basic exercises were developed not as a form of theatre but by a social worker in 1920s Chicago. She was helping deprived children find their voice. It was her son that developed them into a form of entertainment, which is now performed all over the world. You will have lots of fun. These skills will stand you in good stead in your speaking career and beyond.
