Sarah started the first Improbables in Edinburgh with the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre group in 2006. The name and the question mark logo were born. (Logo designed by then Improbable Gordon Craig)
Sarah has always felt that improvisers are super heros without a clue so the name was fitting.
They performed their own shows at the Pleasance Cabaret bar and at the Edinburgh Festival described as 'Hysterical' - Three Weeks
After moving to Guernsey Sarah and Stephen improvised some babies and Super Hero improving took a back seat.
Fast Forward to 2012 when the first course was run in Guernsey. With just eight brave trainees rocking up for the course, not having a clue what to expect, they were instantly hooked!
They performed the first show on the 26th of November 2012 at the Cobo Bay Hotel to a packed out audience. Those first 'Improbables - Guernsey' were Rachel, Alison, Tim, Beaky, Sarah P, Tristan, Micheal and Stephen.
2013 saw patches of shorter courses but in January 2014 a full sold out course started. In March 2014 after several successful graduation performances, the professional Team was launched
Oliver Davies, Dave Hyett, Cailin Sullivan, Stephen Rouxel, Sarah Hansmann and Lydia Pugh.
They have been in demand ever since, performing at The Guernsey Literary festival, The Sure Festival of Comedy, Chaos Music Festival, Specsavers Search for a Star, Shows at the Wicked Wolf and now their new home the Fermain Tavern.
A new course started on September and a fresh crop of Improbabobs got to strut their new found YES, and skills infront of their family and friends.
And before the year is up Guernsey Improbables will be launching the first ever 'IMPROBABELTERS! - IMPROVISED COMEDY MUSICAL'
