What our students say

I started as an audience member, laughing my butt off and never believing for a second that I’d ever be on stage doing the same thing. I was in total awe at the way the improvisers could generate so much comedy out of nothing, watching it come alive. I took the classes and made friends for life there. I think it’s safe to say improv has changed my life for the better.

It’s like no one knows what they are doing. In a world of know-it-alls, this is refreshing. It’s the longest hobby I’ve ever stuck with. Must be the constant support. 5 stars. Through improv I discovered that I’m naturally more feelings based. The last 10 years I’ve been building my identity around being a rational robot. Improv destroyed this. Now I cry in showers, but it’s better than nothing!
