Tony Slattery returns to London improv

Residency for Whose Line? star

Tony Slattery is continuing his live comedy comeback with a series of improv gigs in London.

His monthly residency at the Slattery Night Fever nights follow his return to the Edinburgh Fringe this August.

The self-proclaimed former ‘recluse’ appeared in seven shows of the revived Whose Line Is In Anyway? show at the festival – his first proper Edinburgh run since 1984.

Before the Fringe, he told Chortle: ‘'In terms of whether people will come to see me, perhaps I can play the "oh Jesus, I thought he died years ago" card.’

In his new London shows he will be working with Lesley Ann Albiston and Canadian improv guru Alan Marriott, both from Grand Theft Impro, as well as stand-up Neil Cole and musician Sandra-Mae Luykz.

The format is ad-libbed games, scenes and songs followed by an entire improvised play, all based on suggestions from the audience. 

It will be staged at London Improv Theatre, an intimate cabaret venue in the North Star in West Hampstead, one of the oldest pubs in London, with the first show on October 14.
