"... when you walk onstage with him, you will be met with a world of experience, an open heart, playfulness and joy!"

"... an incredibly delightful, intuitive performer and one of the most insightful directors I've ever met."

Hi there, I'm Chris.


I'm a UK-based performer and theatre-maker who teaches and coaches improvisation in London.


I studied theatre at Royal Holloway College and improvisation at iO and The Annoyance Theatre in Chicago. 


I'm co-artistic director of The Nursery Theatre, a space in London dedicated to improv as a theatrical art form. I'm a member of the internationally-renowned ensemble The Maydays, one half of sci-fi duo Project2 and recently co-founded Unmade Theatre Co. to pursue new projects as a director and performer. 


I'm also the host of YesBot, a podcast about the theory and craft of improv.

I love improv. It's at the heart of everything I do.
I perform it, teach it and talk about it - both in podcasts and on my blog. 


This website gives you access to all that stuff.

What can I do for you?
