What People Are Saying:

  • Every week of class, Amanda introduced a new way of creating characters, or gave a fresh perspective on a familiar approach. Her approach really empowered me since I came into improv without an acting background, she gave me the confidence to be more bold with my characters.


  • After taking both her Improv for Actors and Character Intensive classes, I felt empowered as an improviser and found a renewed confidence and love for improv.

  • Amanda's workshop was just what I needed. It pushed me to go to new places, gave me new perspective, and was above all really, really fun. Her teaching style focuses on the improviser going somewhere, not just making the audience laugh. Which allowed us all to go amazing places that the audience would have never expected. She's playful, respects the art-form and wants all her students to succeed.
