Foghorn Unscripted is an established group of comedy improvisers from Birmingham, UK. We perform improvised stories, using nothing but suggestions from the audience and the power of our own imaginations. Each show features five to eight performers from a pool of strong local improv talent.
Craig has been doing stand-up, acting, writing and performing for the last 10 years. He speaks a few languages and is slightly obsessed with Kenneth Williams. His (Craig’s, not Kenneth’s) first experience with improv was in 2008, and he’s been loving the adrenalin ever since. Craig also enjoys food and air.
Kit started off with plans to be a theatre director but jumped ship after her first improv workshop. She was hooked and set up Foghorn in 2012. Here are a few of her favourite improv things: emotions, real characters, stories, laugh-out-loud surprises and satisfying endings. Kit is also a media trainer – teaching people how to ‘bring their best selves’ for TV and radio interviews.
Marcus trained at the Birmingham School of Speech and Drama and has, of course, done the obligatory appearance in Doctors (in fact twice) for the BBC. His other TV appearances includes an advert for Belvita – he is quick to point out he was not Lisa Snowden’s body double… He also works a lot with the Bold Text Collective and performs at the Birmingham Rep with them. He also enjoys investing his time with up and coming filmmakers at local universities. His recent theatre work includes playing Father Christmas in the 5 star reviewed Pins & Needles / Lyric Hammersmith co-production of Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas at the Lyric Hammersmith, London. Marcus is thrilled to be learning the perpendicular art of long form improvisation.

Sarah Jane graduated from the Poor School … a long, long time ago. Up until fairly recently most of Sarah’s acting life has been restricted to Theatre, more often than not; Shakepeare and other forms of striding about with her hands on her hips. She now prefers staying at home listening to the sound of her own voice in her home recording Studio. Sarah wasn’t initially sure about improv, she was pretty much harassed by Kit to give it go. That was in 2016 and she hasn’t looked back since.
Rose started performing in self-written productions at the age of 5, every Christmas Eve for family & neighbours. While this was a very successful enterprise, Rose wanted more. She joined Year Our Drama Company in Stratford, before studying Performing Arts & Psychology at university. Briefly a professional theatre in eduction actor, Rose turned to arts administration in order to keep everyone organised.
Although still regularly performing, Foghorn is Rose’s big leap into improv.
