We need ‘Look Up’ to become as instinctive as 'Mind the Gap'
Corry Shaw joined the impatient ranks in September 2017. During her 22 years in the comedy business Corry has worked for the Edinburgh Stand, Brighton and Bath Komedia, Covent Garden Comedy Club, Chortle, GSOH, Gag Reflex, Glorious Management, Bound & Gagged, Radio Forth, The Edinburgh Evening News and has served as a barmaid, reviewer, producer, agent, booker, web administrator, tour booker, researcher, show manager and venue manager. She also launched and ran Foolhardy Comedy which provided act representation for Alfie Brown, Ed Gamble, Iain Sterling, Tom Rosenthal, Sean McLoughlin, Flange Krammer, Fin Taylor and David Elms. In 2012 she staged managed the Edinburgh Comedy Award winning 'The Wrestling'. Corry has also been heavily involved with Mark Watson's marathon Fringe shows and produced his '24 Hour Jamboree To Save The Planet' in 2007 and 'Mark Watson's Last Ever 24 Hour Show' in 2009. In 2013 she co-produced his 25 hour show for Comic Relief which raised over £60,000 for the charity, and in 2015 his 27 hour show which raised over £100,000. Despite the occasional witty one-liner and having that northern sing-songy thing that Victoria Wood made famous, Siren Turner has got nothing on this lot in terms of comedy credentials but she is quickly catching them up. Combining her love for live performance and a tendency towards OCD in the organisation stakes, she has worked happily at Impatient since April 2016 and continues to be inspired by funny bones and comedic brains. She has assisted Mark and Lianne in producing several shows for Radio 4 - Mark Watson Talks A Bit About Life, Angela Barnes: You Can’t Take It With You, Ria Lina: School of Riason and Kate Fox: The Price of Happiness - and alongside Mark’s MW tour has coordinated UK-wide tours for Sofie Hagen, Yianni Agisilaou and Gary Delaney.
