The Improv Scotland Podcast is – quite simply – a podcast to promote improv in Scotland. Every fortnight, Mark Craig will gather a few talented Scotland-based improvisers and play silly games and perform made-up scenes in the vicinity of a microphone. These will then be presented to you for your listening pleasure!

Improv at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014

The podcast will be taking a short break during August because the Edinburgh Fringe has descended and most Scottish improvisers are out performing or watching international improvisers all month! To that end I have compiled a list of every improv show I could find and present it to you below!

12 - Exquisite Smelling Legs

For this episode Mark Craig is joined by Paul Connolly, Eric Geistfeld and Tom Pennock - under their own free will and with absolutely no violent coercion - in order to bring you silly games and made-up scenes! They show off their impeccable geography skills regarding New Brunswick, Switzerland and San Mantino, talk to a real life Edinburgh tram and then specifically don't do a scene about squirrels!

11 - King Raccoon

Praise be to Wall! In this episode Mark Craig can barely control the hilarious antics of Pint and a Half - the duo made up of Sam Irving and Will Naameh - as they perform silly made-up scenes and push the boundaries of what is considered comically decent! Listen in wonder as they delve into the seedy rivalries of lycanthrope soap-stars, remark on the prominence of facial hair in Greek mythology and discover the real reason George R. R. Martin is taking so long to finish the Song of Ice and Fire series!

10 - Drowned Charizard

Another bonus episode made up of unused gold from previous recordings this week as Mark Craig is joined by countless improvisers for fun and games around a microphone! The Queen wins an Emmy and then gets lost at a doctor's, we have yet another mention of three time Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis and we finish on a frankly obscene game set in a Debenhams!

9 - A Few Strange Lumps

We dedicate this episode of the Improv Scotland Podcast to our greatest fans as Mark Craig is joined by their son Paul Connolly and their nemesis Tom Pennock to delight and infuriate them in equal measure! This week we amuse ourselves (and you) by singing a song to the King of the Sea, discussing the Meatball Universe Theory and we may also just save your life and/or wife!

8 - Sponge Juice

In honour of his birthday Mark Craig is joined by Paul Connolly and Nicola Dove for some celebratory silliness and improvised scenes on the latest Improv Scotland Podcast! They mark the occasion by solving a seemingly impossible murder, shamelessly promoting Dyson hoovers and standing idly by as our Man on the Street starts to lose his mind!

7 - Kitten Button

The Improv Scotland Podcast goes back to school in this episode as Mark Craig is joined by David Devereux, Kat McKnight and David Pellow  in a very warm room of Stirling University's library for some improvised silliness! We meet Barack Obama's maid and an unfortunately named man in a trenchcoat, make at least one Les Mis joke and get Yo-Bang'd by Ashton Kutcher from the past!
