Described as “charmingly leftfield with a warm, oddball sense of humour”, Viv Groskop did her first gig in June 2009.
She does not rip up the rule book on stage. Because that would make a mess – and be extremely disrespectful to the person who compiled the rule book. Instead her stand-up sets are playful and slightly unhinged.
The queen of infectious enthusiasm, she is an excitable ad-libber from The Spontaneity Shop school of improv.
Sometimes she raps. It is bad.
Viv is brilliant. But I still quite like Billy Connolly. – Jo Brand
The ‘viv’ in vivacious. We have never had anyone step over our threshold with as much class. The audience loves her. – Gemma Beagley, MC, Comedy Virgins.

Why are you doing this? – Mrs Groskop Snr.
