Finding the Game:Thesis
Read my masters thesis about the linguistics of improv comedy. It's a bit heady and long. Sorry.
If there's a class you'd like to see, please contact me to make a request. I am happy to teach classes in improv, sketch, standup, and film. I offer personal, group, children's, and corporate workshop rates.
IMPROV LEVEL 1
Wow your friends, woo your girlfriend or boyfriend, and want no more for the next interesting thing to say in a conversation!

IMPROV COMEDY LEVEL 2
This class is for people who have completed Level 1 or have a foundational understanding and practice in improv. We will focus on learning how best to play short-form improv games to create bold, interesting scenes that get us “out of our head.” By the end of the course students will have a better grasp on ways to make a scene more engaging, dynamic, and fundamentally fun.
