CAMERON WATSON


Co-founder

Co-founder

Cameron has been improvising in Brisbane since 2007.  In 2009 he co-founded The Sherbet Underground Improv Theatre a company dedicated to Chicago style improvisation - this endeavour led him to America in 2012 and again 2014, while there he trained with iO (formerly Improv Olympic), The Second City and Under the Gun Theatre's in Chicago and the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City.  He brought his training back to Brisbane and has taught for number of local improv companies - he recently accepted the position of co-director of training with ImproMafia.

Growing up Cameron was a huge fan of Rowan Atkinson's Mr Bean and his ability to create comedy with few words - it was this need to rely on your own comedic instincts that drew him to improvisation.  It was later in his improv career Cameron learned that many of his other comedy heroes - Tina Fey, Will Ferrel, Chris Farley, Amy Poheler - got their start in improvisation which led him to explore American style improvisation.

Cameron loves sharing his improv knowledge with others, this inspired him to help found Big Fork Theatre.  Dedicated to helping foster a vibrant improv and sketch comedy community in Brisbane, Cameron is excited to see Big Fork Theatre help other performers grow.
