Do The Right Scene are a group of black improvisers with a wealth of TV credits including BBC 3, BBC Radio 1 and Comedy Central. They will be performing at the theatre on Friday and in this blog, we do a little preview for three of Friday’s players.
Tai is a winner of BBC’s Comedy Writer’s Room with credits on BBC One, BBC Three and Vice.
As well as a writer he is a director, actor, comedian, improviser and celebrity impressionist.
He combines his socially aware comedy with surreal points of view.
Monica is a fizzy one and a right comedy corker; a Hoopla Impro teacher with finesse minus the stress, coming to orchestrate some classic comedy and improvisational sonatas as she conducts a score of merry mayhem.
Athena Kugblenu is a comedian and writer trying to dismantle the current world order by trying to make people who disagree with her laugh.
A BBC New Comedy Award finalist, her writing and performance credits include News Quiz, The Now Show, Museum of Curiosity, Loose Ends and BBC Scotland’s Breaking the News. She’s written sketches for BBC 4 (Sketchtopia), and written and presented online and print content for Stylist Magazine and Time Out.
She’s taken two acclaimed hours to the Edinburgh Fringe where her writing always makes the best jokes lists of The Guardian, Independent and The Telegraph. Her stand up has been demanded in Europe, Dubai and Johannesburg.
A respected commentator, Athena is a regular co-host of The Guilty Feminist and was invited to be a regular co-presenter of the Arts Hour on BBC Five Live in 2018.
“…authentic, observational comedy presented beautifully…pleasingly original” ★★★★ – Broadway Baby
