TESTIMONIALS

“I was looking for an outlet for my inner comic and took [the Begginer class] as a complete novice. It exceeded my expectations. Each class was well-led by at least two fun, personable improv veterans who created a welcoming and engaging environment for everyone. We also had a very friendly group that made it safe and fun to try out the skills, take risks, be silly, and most of all, laugh together. It was so much fun! I would highly recommend this class.” – Mei

“This was one of the best classes I've ever taken - definitely the most fun. I originally signed up partly because friends told me I was funny, but mainly because I thought it would be a good way to work on my public speaking skills for work. Little did I know just how much it would help me at work in other ways as well. I've learned to really listen when my clients are speaking; to be able to better understand where they are coming from and what direction they want to head in. Working with clients has become a lot more fun since I've started this class, and I've even applied for a new role working more often with clients in person (rather than virtually), something I would not have had the courage to do prior to [this class].” – Jill
