President: Anna Kemp
Vital Statistics: Howdy! I’m Anna, I’ve been part of the wonderful bristol improv for around 2 years, and golly gee I’m now president! I help make everything run (or walk, its up to you) as smoothly as possible. I’m a second year Psychology student, so I get you, yes you. Come have a chit-chat with me or any of the wonderful committee below; I’m friendly and boundlessly enthusiastic for new ideas, opportunities and, you guess it, improv! This year’s going to be great, y'all, I can feel it in my bones.

I organise the workshops for Bristol Improv and help make sure everything is generally going as well as possible. If I haven’t already I hope to meet you soon. In a bit.

Vital Statistics: Hello! My name is Liv, I currently use she/her pronouns and I’m the Equality and Collaboration Officer for Bristol Improv 2016/17.
When I’m not doing improv I can be found doing of the following things:
• Thinking about improv
• Thinking about other type of comedy
• Walking around Forbidden Planet aimlessly
• Dying my hair
• Talking about my shoes, socks and dresses
• Enthusiastically trying sports until I find the ‘right’ one
• Listening to One Direction without shame
• Thinking about parties to organise (Tim Curry party anyone?)
Oh and I’m also trying to do a biology degree…
Liv out (your days in happiness)

Vital Statistics: Hey, I'm shocked to see you! [get it lol] I study French and Spanish and I'm in my second year. I love Bristol improv with all my heart and I hope you do/will soon as well :D If you see me around uni I'll probably be running somewhere else because I always have too much to do, but do say hey anyway! I think this is the bit where I'm supposed to be funny but this description isn't improvised so we're gonna have to just leave it there.
