Simon Topping

In this episode I chat to Liz Peters about finding the joy of improv comedy, the brutal feedback we have received as performers.  Also we talk about the "character building" jobs she has done, about no being leading role material and how not getting what you want sometimes turns out to be the best thing that can possibly happen. 

Liz is an award-nominated performer who has spent the last decade helping people feel relaxed and playful in the spotlight.

She teaches improvisation around the world and works with organisations and individuals to improve human communication; both in how we connect and collaborate with each other and how we deliver in front of an audience. A regular contributor on leadership programmes, Liz helps build presence and agility in the change-makers of tomorrow, and has brought her innovative approach to communication training into countless organisations, from social enterprises to global corporations.

With 20 years experience in the entertainment industry, Liz is co-Artistic Director of The Maydays – one of the UK’s leading improvisation companies –  and tours worldwide, creating musicals live in the moment, without a script.

She is the author of ‘Own it!’ out now.
