The Ministry of Improv

The Ministry of Improv is the unofficial non-government fictional department for improvised comedy, and proudly boasts no attachment to any official Government body in any way (jut in case we needed to make that clear).

We provide high-quality improvised comedy at The Old Joint Stock and elsewhere.

The Ministry is a Birmingham-based comedy improvisation group featuring the region’s most available improvisers. It also includes guest performers from other local groups.

Four of the Ministry’s Directorate of Amusement, Fun and Theatre (DAFT) were members of Foghorn Improv, who performed at The Old Joint Stock Pub Theatre every month for three years. Foghorn Improv hit the road as a touring company in September 2015, and it was decided that a new Directorate was required to oversee the insatiable special needs of the regular OJS audience.

Those DAFT ministers are Lee Dempsey, Matt Vaughan-Wilson, Karen Benjamin, Paul Messer and Simon Britton. Our other DAFT Minister, Jon Trevor, is the principal of Box of Frogs, where the other Ministers trained to the highest standards available amongst talented peers – a bit like Eton, but significantly cheaper.
