In 2008, he took the show Paul Merton’s Impro Chums to the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in Pleasance and has been touring the collective improvisational experience during which he leads a group of comedians as they flex comedy muscles ever since.
Merton married Suki Webster, a fellow improvisational comedian whom he met while performing in India, in 2010 and she also joined the group.
According to the Daily Mirror, they “continue to be the finest exponents of the improv art”, while the British Theatre Guide said that they are “the most seasoned performers in this field and know just how to work the games, the suggestions and the audience for maximum effect”.
Along with Merton and Webster, the group currently includes Richard Vranch, Mike McShane and accompanist Kirsty Newton. In May 2021, he announced Paul Merton’s Impro Chums would head out on a UK tour from March to June 2022.
