I can’t believe I learned so much in one day! This workshop helped me find stillness, intention and a deep sense of character, and has given me the confidence and skills to use in future shows.

All of Jonathan’s workshops that I have taken have been a true gem. Imaginative, fun and completely original. Every time I attend one of them I learn to see impro in a new way.

Jonathan creates a limitless, hilarious space for his students to experiment in. All boundaries of improv are pushed and tested in his workshop, and you come out feeling stronger as a performer, as well as just having the best time.

Jonathan represents the very best of Improv. He teaches us the kind of improv that gets to the heart of our humanity, where laughter comes from emotional truth, absurdity and even silence.

This was one of the most useful/helpful workshops I’ve attended in a long time.

Jonathan is always positive in tone and encouraging in words. The activities he brought to the workshop were very valuable and hit a lot of different aspects of performance and stage presence, which I really appreciated.

Jonathan is the most amazing improv teacher. He’s dynamic, explains things very clearly and points out ways we can improve in a beautiful constructive way. He has a wonderful sense of humour, but knows when to be focused. I would definitely recommend anyone to attend his workshops, they will learn and take away so much.

Thank you Jonathan for a day that modelled the best of Improv - an accepting, inclusive environment, full of wonder and play, that allowed people to takes risks and be vulnerable. You encouraged us to aim for beauty - which we touched occasionally - but more often stumbled into comedy!
- Phillip, Auckland
Jonathan is a fantastic teacher and director. He created a really safe space to learn and discover each of our own performance styles. I had so much fun being challenged and inspired!.
