Testimonials

I had such a great time training with Cameron. The well thought out and always interesting workshops challenged me and helped me to grow as an improvisor. I especially enjoyed the way each class centred on a particular ‘building block’ of improvisational theatre - it meant that you had a very complete picture of how to build an interesting scene at the end of the training. Also it was hella fun.

The training I received from Cameron has made me a stronger and more effective performer. It gave me tools that are useful for performing comedy anywhere. Also crazy fun and affordable.
