Doctor Who Executive Producer Steven Moffat

Moffat in Surprise Edinburgh Improv Show Appearance

Steven Moffat is to appear in an improvised comedy show at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

The Doctor Who showrunner will be a guest on Ad Lib at the Assembly Hall on August 21 2013, appearing alongside comedian and self-confessed fan of the series Frank Skinner.

Moffat has a background in comedy having scripted Joking Apart and Coupling, but an improvised show would be something of a departure.

Host Fred MacAulay promises ‘an hour of spontaneous and unexpected conversation from some of Britain’s sharpest, funniest and most creative brains’, perhaps indicating the show will follow an ‘in conversation’ format rather than a more anarchic improvised free-for-all.

Either way it should be a fascinating evening! More details on the Edinburgh Fringe and buy tickets at
