DOUGLAS WALKER

Douglas Walker is a comedian, writer & improviser.

His debut Edinburgh Fringe solo-sketch show MOGLICH was critically lauded & toured to Adelaide Fringe and Perth Fringe in 2016.  His incisive and insightful writing is coupled with a formidable acting talent honed over six years with Fringe favourites, the improv troupe Racing Minds. The joyous love for absurd narratives and larger-than-life characters familiar their fans still shines through in Walker’s solo work, but here it is mixed with an intricacy of execution and a subtle appreciation for both the surreal and the satirical that transforms those elements into something more than comic. Walker delights in testing the boundaries of what comedy might do, and what an audience might expect from a comedy show.   His latest solo show KOMISCHER was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 and will be part of the comedy line-up at Fringe World in Perth in 2017.

Douglas has performed in Australia, Belgium, Poland and the Netherlands, lectured on improvised comedy at the University of Westminster and is a regular contributor to one of London’s most popular alternative comedy events, Stand Up Philosophy.
