Stephen Frost is a veteran comedy actor and improviser who I first saw live performing One Word Improv with Suki Webster, Neil Mullarkey and Eddie Izzard at the Albery Theatre in 1995.  I then saw him twice at the Edinburgh Festival when he appeared in the live version and revival of the classic impro TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway?  Improv shows are different every night because they are based on audience suggestions and I often marvel at how improvers can take a word or situation given to them by a face the crowd and turn it into a comedy routine.  Frost is amongst a handful who are brilliant at the genre.

Frost was one of the guest improvisers for Whose Line Is It Anyway? that I saw at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2019.  He was particularly brilliant when being moved around the stage from an unsuspecting member of the audience who could only tap his arm or leg to move whilst being prompted from the host Clive Anderson about what to do next.  Frost is a particularly silly performer that I love and was a worthy addition to the show,
