Stand-up comic and actor with 20 years of experience teaches acting, improv and stand-up.

Methodology

My teaching method is to teach the improv techniques and principles established by Del Close and Viola Spolin, using theatre games and short-form scene work. I teach long-form impr with an emphasis on scene work and character. My approach to stand-up focuses on performing and writing, finding each student's strengths and weaknesses. I explore joke and bit writing techniques and finding one's own voice/persona. In sketch work I stress finding the strongest premise possible and the importance of the ending.

Background

I am an actor, stand-up comic, and comedy writer with twenty years' experience in voice-overs, interactive theatre, improv, sketch and playwriting and joke writing. My credits include Cracked, Other Than That, Mrs. Lincoln: The Book of American Disaster Jokes, Blood Manor and Nightmare.
