Four brave performers arrive with no script and not the faintest idea of what will happen. Willed on by a supportive crowd, they create, through improvisation, whole sketches and comic dramas that are amazingly inventive and regularly take off into flights of surreal brilliance.

Featuring some of the most popular characters from the English TV series ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’, as seen on Channel 4 / Dave Channel / SKY, Improv All Stars involves lots of audience participation and madcap improvised comedy sketches.

This all star show for Cat Laughs 2018 features the improv talents of Stephen Frost, Andy Smart, Steve Steen and Ian Coppinger with special guest Dermot Whelan.

They are joined by very special guest Dermot Whelan, host of Today FM’s Dermot and Dave Show. His podcast, The Booze Chronicles, won him a gong at the New York Festival Awards for the World’s Best Radio Shows. His radio comedy creation, the Toll Trolls, have had 3 top ten albums and recently went double platinum.

Big, bald, bushy browed Stephen Frost is a comedy legend and an improv maestro. He pulls the strings and announces the games, taking audience suggestions and deciding when a sufficient level of breathless hilarity has been reached before moving on to the next game. He has appeared in Whose Line Is It Anyway, The Young Ones and as the overly cheerful head of a firing squad on Blackadder.

A leading exponent of the art form, Steve Steen was featured in six episodes of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’. He also appeared on ‘Have I Got News For You’, is practically a mascot of the Vodafone Comedy Carnival, Galway and had a star turn as Lord Byron in ‘Blackadder The Third’.

Andy Smart is a member of The Comedy Store Players: the longest running comedy show in the world according to the Guinness Book Of Records. For some reason, Andy has run with the bulls in Pamplona over fifty times.

Ian Coppinger packs a lot of fun into a five foot frame. One of Ireland’s most successful comics, Ian acts, performs stand up and improvises all around the globe and is the perfect physical foil to Stephen’s hulking presence. Ian has appeared on ‘The Panel’ and is a long standing member of Dublin Comedy Improv.

Special guest Dermot Whelan is a Radio and TV Presenter, Comedian and Public Speaker. He currently hosts the popular mid-morning Dermot and Dave Show on Ireland’s largest independent national station, Today FM. He has been crowned Best Music Broadcaster 2016 at the PPI National Radio Awards and was awarded Best Music Programme 2016 for his Today FM show, Dermot and Dave, having won the award six years running. His podcast, The Booze Chronicles, also won him a gong at the New York Festival Awards for the World’s Best Radio Shows. His radio comedy creation, the Toll Trolls, have had 3 top ten albums and went double platinum.
