About me

 

I have been involved in small scale events for the last 8 years and have played a principle part in creating some great festivals and theatre shows. The most notable points so far have been: ? Setting up Rolling Sky Productions (www.rollingskyproductions.co.uk), in 2007 to produce Fringe based theatre shows on my own time and finance. ? My first festival 'That Thing in August' in 2012 spanned 30 days with 64 shows, and received 5 TimeOut recommendations. This became 'That Thing is Comedy' (www.thatthing.in), a comedy night which now runs venues in London. ? Produced an annual festival called 'ImprofestUK' (www.improfestuk.co.uk) which is now in its 4th year. Currently in the West End at Tristan Bates Theatre.
