Paul Merton’s Impro Chums

Paul Merton, Richard Vranch, Suki Webster, Mike McShane, and accompanist Kirsty Newton are back on the road in 2022 to visit some of their favourite parts of the UK with another evening of mind-blowing improvisation. 

The collective improvisational experience embodied in the Chums is a joy to behold. They flex their improvisational muscles to delight and entertain audiences in this country and abroad.

“MERTON’S CHUMS ARE SOME OF THE MOST SEASONED PERFORMERS IN THIS FIELD AND KNOW JUST HOW TO WORK THE GAMES, THE SUGGESTIONS, AND THE AUDIENCE FOR MAXIMUM EFFECT… PURE HILARITY” – British Theatre Guide

“THEY CONTINUE TO BE THE FINEST EXPONENTS OF THE IMPROV ART” – Daily Mirror
