Stephen Merchant, Extras

This is one story of improvisation on top of improvisation on top of improvisation! Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais are a great comedy pairing which has resulted in numerous brilliant television shows, most notably Extras. Apparently the pair improvised so much during the writing process that they "didn't really need to improvise on the set". However, all that improvisation clearly wasn't enough, as they still resorted to ad-libbing from time to time! To have that much unscripted material and still end up with one of the funniest shows on television shows the mark of a true comedic genius!

Sharlto Copley, District 9

The 2009 film District 9 was that documentary style thriller set in Johannesburg, following a township which is filled with aliens which the humans refer to as 'prawns'. Yes, I did say thriller, but I can't be the only one that noticed the wealth of dry humor and amusing references. In fact, you'd be surprized to learn how much of the film didn't use a script – it's more than you'd think! The director (Neill Blomkamp) decided to completely forego a script altogether for the main character of Wikus van der Merwe (played by Sharlto Copley). That's right – everything the main character says throughout the entire film was improvised. I don't know about you, but that gave me a whole new level of respect for him as an actor!
