For those wanting to learn and improve their craft, we have classes, workshops, open mics, and other opportunities to get better. We see everyone from office workers, doctors, teachers, lawyers, actors, musicians, politicians. Our students have gone on to make house teams at the biggest improv schools in the nation, be on national television shows and commercials, even being the main star of an HBO show, and many of them use the skills they learn in their own careers whether they are scientists or baristas and really everything else.
