Paul Merton, one of the UK’s best-loved performers, and his world renowned Impro Chums: Mike McShane, Lee Simpson, Richard Vranch and Suki Webster will create a new and unique comedy show, based entirely on suggestions from the audience, their own finely honed improvisational skills and an almost manic compulsion to show off. Special guests may also be joining them including: Niall Ashdown, Andy Smart and Steve Steen*.
A year ago I began co-writing a major three part series for BBC2 about “The Birth of Hollywood.” On May 27th at 9.30pm tune into your small screen to discover the story of the big screen. (Please read my blog for more details.)
Other recent projects include co-writing “Paul Merton’s Weird and Wonderful World of Early Cinema” as well as being the Assistant Director and appearing as a Parisian sophisticate.
In 2009 as well as my regular appearances with ‘The Impro Chums’ and ‘The Comedy Store Players’, I was thrilled to appear on BBC Radio Four’s iconic programme ‘Just A Minute.’ I loved every second of every minute and afterwards Graham Norton kindly congratulated me on “a great debut.”
Other work in 2009 includes co-writing and briefly appearing in, as a cigar-smoking nun, ‘Paul Merton Looks At Alfred Hitchcock’ for BBC4. An hour long documentary that concentrated on Hitchcock’s early British career before his move to Hollywood.
“An informed and often extremely funny programme.” The Times
I also co-wrote ‘Morcambe and Wise The Show What Paul Merton Did.’ The recording felt like we were working with the great duo themselves.
