Impro FX: Men With Coconuts

Sun 4th – Fri 23rd Aug 2013


“Five-star improvised comedy with live sound effects!”





Impro FX


Brand new for Edinburgh Fringe 2013, Impro FX is proud to present their debut show Men With Coconuts!

Expect 50 minutes of freshly coined improvised games and stories - all with the added zest of live sound effects!

Our five-star improvisers (plus daily special guests) play games and create scenes based entirely on audience suggestions.

From a galloping horse to a chainsaw, or the eerie footsteps of a nocturnal assailant, comic scenes are imbued with depth and character by the sounds created live on stage by these players-cum-Foley artists.

The pace, sounds and ever evolving structure of Men With Coconuts make it an original, multi-sensory improv comedy experience. What's more, it's part of PBH's Free Fringe, so the dear punters don't have to pay a bean to come and see it!

Impro FX is an improvisational comedy troupe from Edinburgh, Scotland. Founded by and starring Harry Gooch (Clive Anderson's Guessing Game, BBC Radio Scotland), the troupe features the comedic talents of Annabel Logan, Steve Worsley, Will Naameh and Charlie Hindley.

Impro FX are:

Harry Gooch

At 6'4" with ginger hair Gooch was driven into improv as everyone was already looking at him and laughing anyway. Training in physical theatre and commedia has enhanced the use of his legs, to name but two (sic). This year he had the pleasure of working alongside the Rumpole of the Bailey of British improv, Clive Anderson, in The Guessing Game on BBC Radio Scotland.

Charlie Hindley

Charlie has been a professional performer for 25 years, having begun his career at the age of 8. As well as numerous TV, radio and recording credits in his early career, Charlie has also performed on many of the world's great stages, from London's West End to the Sydney Opera House. He has written, produced, directed and performed at the Edinburgh Festival for 4 out of the last 6 years and has received much acclaim for much of his work during this period.

Will Naameh

Will is an actor, writer, director and Harry Potter tour guide. He is also the only mixed-race member of Impro FX, being half-Syrian on his father's side, from where he gets his handsome nose and ability to count to ten in Arabic. In 2012 he co-directed Fringe show

Killing Time. Last year, he also acted in Broken Holmes Productions' five-star official sell-out Fringe show In a Handbag Darkly.

Steve Worsley

Steve is the fattest and oldest member of Men With Coconuts. He trained as an actor at Queen Margaret College, Edinburgh, and has gone on to have quite a diverse career ranging from musical theatre and voice overs to role playing and zombie movies! He can also be seen swinging across Scotland with his own Rat Pack vocal group Ocean's 3.

Annabel Logan

Annabel trained in Acting at East 15 Drama School, but has been suppressing the musical theatre gene since 2008 as she realised spontaneous harmonising was rather grating on the people she loved. However she still sings and plays accordion with Edinburgh-based band 'The Beggar's Cavale'... the methadone to the smack of Musical Theatre.
