I am a coach and that is just furiously true.
This is me:http://newyork.improvteams.com/performe ... ustingrace
I've been studying at the UCB since 2006, and in that time have taken classes with the likes of Michael Delaney, Will Hines, Nate Dern, Laura Grey, Jordan Klepper, Curtis Gwinn, Becky Drysdale, Shannon O'Neill, and Ryan Karels. Plus a ton more.
Currently, I roll with indie teams Dog Court and Hell On Earth. Previously, I have been a member of Rat King and the 600 level shows Immediately Great and LaRontage. For the last three years, I've been coaching Control Top, an all-girl group at Barnard College, and it is so much fun I could burst. Circumstances are such the cast has a lot of turnover so it's like getting a new 101 class every September.
My big thing is that we often construct these narratives of "bad things we do" in scenes, and because our brains fixate more on negative information, we don't wind up noticing when we make very awesome simple moves that don't conform to them. All it takes is being aware of the ways in which your mind is already the world's best improviser. I'd like to teach you to love your instincts and help create an environment where you feel comfortable following them. I am also the sort of guy who would always rather see a perfectly played hilarious scene interrupted by a five minute tangent about types of floor grout, so there's that, too.
As of now, I'm available every night of the week except Thursdays. Hit me up at email@example.com
or 609-226-3176 if you want to try and get something going.
