What do you do in your not so secret off-stage life?
Neil: I look after my children. Then after their bedtime, I watch European crime thrillers on BBC4.
What do you love about improvisation?
Neil: The shared vulnerability between performers and audience that so often leads to joyous laughter and great stories.
Neil: Desmond Jones, Mike Myers and Kit Hollerbach to begin with. Then the Comedy Store Players and our guests.
Is there a particular area in your every-day life where you find your improvisation skills come in handy?
Neil: When I have to deal with grown-ups. And children.
Anything else you'd like me to mention..?
Neil: One day, improv classes will be available to every child in every school.
