Neil Mullarkey

Neil Mullarkey is a legend in the world of improv. As the Founder of The Comedy Store Players and an active improv trainer and comedian, Neil believes that the future of business comes with a laugh.

Want your teams to be more willing to share ideas and try new things? Make them laugh! Neil shares his insights about how good teams build a community where laughter is welcomed. A lighter sense in the work place will lift up every individual to success.

Neil shares his experiences in improv to discuss the specific types of humour that can fill a room with laughter and a business with humanity. Good business leaders can admit when they’ve made a mistake and can live with not knowing the correct answer all of the time. Two qualities that Neil says makes, “the improv mindset”.

Can leading with laughter increase the quality of your creative teams work? Join me and Neil Mullarkey on this week’s episode of The Humourology Podcast to find out!

Neil has played the legendary Comedy Store in more guises than just about anyone.

As part of two double acts (with Mike Myers and with Nick Hancock), as a solo comedian and, for over 30 years as a Comedy Store player with the likes of Paul Merton, Eddie Izzard, Josie Lawrence, and Sandi Toksvig.
