They have become Europe’s leading improv troupe and, uniquely, have comprised largely the same personnel over a quarter of a century, earning a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

Neil has also appeared in movies, radio & TV including Whose Line Is It Anyway, Just A Minute, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, and QI. For much of the last decade, he has used his improv skills within organizations to enhance their communication and creative skills. This led him to create his hilarious alter ego, L.

His book, Don’t Be Needy Be Succeedy: The A to Zee of Motivitality, has been published in the UK, Australia, USA, Canada and India.

What the press said:

“Superb pastiche of self-help gurus. It’s Borat meets The Office.” SUNDAY TIMES (LONDON)

“Quite possibly the only business book you should ever bother reading” FINANCIAL TIMES
