What you'll do

Individuals:
In one hour, I teach you all the fundamental principles of improvisation and improvise with you as we go. You will then know how to do a dramatic/comic scene from beginning to end starting with nothing but a single suggestion. You will laugh the whole time we work together. I am tremendously supportive while scaffolding the skills. This class is equally accessible to introverts or people who speak English as a second language. Learn from a master who will make you as comfortable as a best friend.

Corporate:
Improv is great for team-building. Having performed and taught for more than 100 Fortune 500 companies, I am well-acquainted with a variety of corporate cultures. Tell me about yours and I will customize the syllabus. I love building connections between employees that are both deeper and lighter (the latter because laughter is tremendously bonding). The skills of improv teach out-of-the-box thinking, effective brainstorming, active listening, and collaboration. Let your team expand their minds, their relationships with one another, and their creative boundaries.

Private groups:
Birthdays, anniversaries, bachelor/bachelorette parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet sixteens, retirements, you-name-it -- there is no occasion that isn't elevated by a group gathering in a spirit of imagination and play.

All categories: Contact me for a new date. I improvise 24/7!

I did this experience with my co-workers and it was a great team bonding exercise! I have enjoyed the whole time very much, it was good to do some improvisation along with my team, like building a story together or just copying each other's movements. The experience is designed in a way where everyone could participate without being pressured. I'd highly recommend this for team events.

Carl was FANTASTIC!! Not only was he an amazing host on the day of, but he was an excellent customer service provider when I had an issue with my account and asked for his help to add another attendee to my registration. He, along with the support team at AirBnB were able to help me navigate the situation with ease. Carl was responsive and helpful! On the day of, Carl was energetic, prepared and full of great teachings that made everyone feel comfortable as newbies. My husband who I initially gifted the class to, really enjoyed every bit of the improv session,especially the "yes and" segment and full story sessions. Carl was easy to understand, funny and attentive to all 4 guests. Highly recommend!

We had a really great time with Carl and another couple. Carl integrated all the participants wonderfully and it was very entertaining. At the end we even developed a little absurd story together: "Jennifer wants to steal a nail salon". It's crazy what you can do together, even though we were sitting in Switzerland and the other couple was in Washington.

We booked this experience for a year-end team celebration. The group really enjoyed themselves and got to know each other better. Plus, it challenged us to get out of our comfort zone. Thank you, Carl!

Carl led an improv session for our work team of about 20. It was very well-organized, well-run and fun. The pace of different activities was good and Carl made everyone feel comfortable trying new techniques. Would definitely recommend this session!
