Oliver Probert

Oliver is an improvisor from way back.  From playing and winning inter-school improv competitions to playing in the Comedy Festival with WIT, his love has always been the stage.

As well as being a performer in WIT shows including Gorilla, Micetro, Battle of WITs and representing WIT in the 2017 and 2018 National Theatresports champs, he independently devised and produced I Can’t Believe it’s Not Scripted, a musical improv show.

Among his many non-improv projects, Oliver devised and hosted a comedy pannel show “Headlines vs Headliners” which ran monthly during 2018, mixing standup comedians and improvisors in a topic-themed quiz format.  He also wrote “We Are the Experiments” as part of the Memory Plays anthology staged at Bats in 2018.

In 2019 he volunteered to be a Co-Creative Director of WIT, and it’s going to be fun to see what he does with the role.
