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!

This was a fun filled hour, with a lot of laughs and witty comebacks. The pace was really good and Carl knew how to tailor the experience to his audience and used things that we talked about to feature in the Improv games. Carl was good at skipping ahead if we had accidental included the next lesson in the last game which I really liked as it stopped it becoming formulaic and feel like he was reading from a script of lessons. The hour went really quick and Carl suggested other classes that might be fun to attend either with himself or other improv teachers that he knew. It was a great class to do on your own or with a large group. Better than I expected and a wide variety covered in such a short space of time.

My daughter organised this for our family in UK and Norway for her sister's 40th birthday. There were 8 of us aged 12 to 69 and we had a lot of fun. I don't think any of us knew quite what to expect but it was all good and we had a few laughs. Carl took care of us all and gently kept us on track when our silliness risked leading things too far off course. Nice to do something a bit different and spend some good time with our family over zoom.

We had a great and fun time learning improv for my sister’s birthday. Carl adjusted the program to the occasion and the audience - we had an age range from 12-69 - everyone was able to join in and Carl supported our efforts. This was also a good way of meeting for our family since we had not met for a while because of Covid.

Carl is fantastic host for improv. His experience allows him to lead a group of inexperienced attendees through a process that immerses them in improvisation. After the process is over, everyone has developed beginner skills that can be honed with practice.

My team participated in Carl’s ‘Master Improvisation in 1 Hour’ and got lots of useful principles to apply to their everyday work especially in collaborative settings. Thank you Carl for reaching us so much in such an efficient and fun way!

This was a fun hour! Carl did a great job of including everyone and encouraging us. I would definitely recommend it for team-building, and it worked out really well in the virtual setting.
