Kat Halstead


Kat’s obsession with improv is relatively new, but she caught the theatre bug young, writing, directing and producing shows and studying Drama and English at university before moving down to the big smoke. Since then she has worked in the world of arts festivals, including The Portobello Film Festival and The Hull International Short Film Festival, as well as PR, for The Associates and London Calling Arts. She is also an entertainment journalist, and has written for titles such as The Stage, Time Out, Short List, Empire and Little White Lies. Kat has packed in a lot of improv over the past few years, studying with teachers from Hoopla, The Nursery, C3Something, The Maydays and Second City, and if you bump into her she WILL recruit you into the community. This takes up most of her time, but Kat also has other passions, including cats, horror films and vegan chocolate spread.
