Improv Classes

“More than any other improv teacher I’ve ever had, Mark created an environment for improvisation that is pure joy and play. And while I have taken classes from other teachers, none of them ever created a magic circle that lived up to the standard set by him.” –Yotam Gingold, actor

“Thank you for freeing me from invention onstage in favour of discovery, for challenging me to avoid going to a place of comfort (since that’s where discovery ends), and for showing me that simplicity is sometimes the most satisfying thing for a performer and an audience.” –Tara Sampson, actor
