If your brains were left as excited and fizzy as ours by this week's chat with CARIAD LLOYD , we mentioned a load of brilliant improvisers, and you'd do your heart and soul good by checking them out doing what they do best, live, creating something funny that will never happen again.

The original and best, 33 years and still going strong. "The best in the business," as Cariad says. It has to be: THE COMEDY STORE PLAYERS
And AUSTENTATIOUS - Cariad's long-form live improvised Jane Austen novel troupe. An off-the-cuff highwire act of spur-of-the-moment creativity. Basically Python's "Live Novel Writing From Wessex" sketch, but actually happening. They'll be at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in August, have more dates at the Savoy, and are off on a full UK tour soon.
Rule of Three
A podcast talking to people who make comedy about the comedy that they love.
