Dead British

An improvised comedy interview show, with characters from British history.

12x 60mins, by Folder & Co, first aired January 2022

The interviewer knows exactly who they are about to interview, but the improviser has no idea which person from British history that they are about to play.

Backed by a cast there to assist the interviewee (from the improvisation group The Maydays), the show will feature probing questions, improvised historical flashbacks and impromptu original songs, to illustrate the living biography of each featured character from British history.

This unpredictable, improvised show mixes historical figures with interviews, sketches and original music, all invented on the spot in front of a live audience.
