Performing Improv, Sketch and Stand-Up Comedy in 2002, I was a full time working comic by 2005. In the past 18+ years I have performed over 5000 comedy show at top NYC clubs, off-Broadway and touring theaters, schools and corporate/private events. It was working as a comin in the clubs that lead to my first bookings on TV and eventually landing an manager/agent.
Teaching was never a goal, but fate came knocking in 2009 when the Comedy Hall of Fame pegged me to head up their new outreach program. After talking to every major school in town, my experience working with K12 schools, via Improv 4 Kids shows and workshops, brought their leadership to our theater.
By 2011 I opened my own Times Square school, with three students, as regulars of our shows begged us to host classes. Unlike most NYC Improv houses, we were performance focused. We were not an indy team showcasing. We were not a comedy school. So I was completely shocked when my students started winning competitions and getting booked on TV shows in recent years. I mean this as no disrespect to their amazing talents and hard work. I simply was not trying to create a factory of professional comics NOR did I have any clue what else was out there.
When we shut down, 2020 was looking to be our best year yet. Thankfully we had built up our school. By April 1, we had 30 students online weekly. By September, I had already logged 1000+hours teaching and performing online. So I wrote the book, IMPROV on ZOOM to accommodate my recently published STAND-UP COMEDY.
Now as we return to live I am so excited to announce TWO of my talented teen students will be series regulars on Disney Plus this year. That’s all I can say for now (NDAs, perhaps I’ve said too much)
We will continue to offer online classes and private shows/workshops as per client needs. REMOTE learning and work is a thing of the future for millions so we intend to meet those demands.
