Gemma Goggin

Gemma Goggin discovered improv a couple of years ago, and now is somewhat of an addict. Having trained as an Actor at LAMDA, Gemma is also a stand up and writer, and has notched up well over 250 gigs since first trying her hand at comedy. She gigs in London and further afield (including solo shows at Edinburgh – Get Laid or Die Trying; Gemma Goggin – Double G; Celebrity Sleepover), and is currently writing a new solo show. She writes a monthly blog for Erotica UK, and is also co-writing a sitcom and working on her self-help book (you heard it here first). Most importantly, she has a filthy laugh. You can hear it if you have a gander at her website:

Julia Collings is obsessed by all things improv and has an irresistible urge to say ‘yes’. She’s an Improvisor by night and internal communications professional by day, which is kind of like Flashdance, but with less welding. And dancing. She also has a passion for 1980s films about welding and dancing. In an alternative life she would be studying medieval manuscripts in the back of a dusty library. But right now when she’s not improvising, or bringing creativity and innovation to the workplace, she’s building lego spaceships with her ultimate improvising companion, her five year old son.

Sarah Castell

Sarah Castell set up Red Lorry Yellow Lorry in 2011 because she was crazy in love with musical improvising, and thought there should be more performing groups in London enjoying the heck out of musical improv. She has trained in Chicago with IO, and in the UK with the Spontaneity Shop, Hoopla, Keith Johnstone and the Maydays. Currently she loves exploring the Sondheim-y school of improvised singing. When it comes to watching improv, she pretty much loves everything, from the Improvised Shakespeare Company to Showstoppers. In fact, she would probably walk ten miles over painful gravel just to see some people improvising in a hedge. In the dark. (If anyone currently does a night-time show in a hedge, then do get in touch). When she’s not improvising, she teaches creative thinking courses to gifted young people and also works to bring improvising into the world of social research.
