Testimonials from participants of Liverpool Comedy Improv workshops, many of whom were trying it for the first time:
Testimonials from Chester Beginners Course:
“I enjoyed the opportunity to play, and experiment – and mostly, to risk! To risk trying something and not knowing how it would turn out (this was challenging too!). This seems to have had the effect of making me a little more relaxed and playful in everyday life, certainly more spontaneous. I really felt that the course built well week on week, so that we developed our understanding and skills as improvisers. There was plenty of variety too, with both shorter and longer improvisations. I’d persuade a friend by telling them that you are well skilled in teaching improv, that they’ll have a great time and never stop laughing while learning.” (Andrew, Probation Service)
“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the recent Comedy Improv course in Chester. It was a mind and body workout; much better value than going to the gym! It was good to meet such a fantastic group of people who were prepared to throw themselves bravely into the activities. I wish it were still going on as I haven’t laughed/moved so much in ages.” (Lynn, Teacher)
