Starship Improvise is probably the leading short-form “Whose Line is it Anyway?” style improvised comedy troupe in South Africa.
Co-founder Chris Forrest, well known as a stand up comedian, has over 13 years of improv experience behind him. After working with various improv groups, he decided in 2007 to form his own troupe and Starship Improvise was born. Since then they have gone from strength to strength, performing both corporate and public shows all over South Africa, as well as making numerous TV appearances, including a starring roll on Mzanzi Magic’s LOL as the “Abadlali”.
Over the years, Forrest has trained a whole host of comedians and drama students in the art of short-form improv, from the basics right through to an advanced level. He has facilitated literally hundreds of workshops, the participants of which have included almost all of South Africa’s top improvisers.
