TESTIMONIALS

Thanks to Jason, I’m a much better listener and communicator. He’s one of the most helpful teachers and coaches I have ever had train me to do anything. Thanks to what I’ve learned doing improv, my team and I have figured out how to connect not only with people who already agree with us, but also with many who don’t. It’s a bonus that Jason delivers his insights with equal parts kindness and directness; he makes it fun even as he stretches your brain.

Jason offers some of the most useful professional development and skills training I know; he helped me see how improv could transform my communications skills, which are central to the work I do every day.

Jason's classes have transformed the way I think about and perform improv! I now approach scene work from a place of grounded honesty, which adds depth, relatability, and humor to my scenes. Jason gives feedback in a direct but encouraging way, which helps me to take risks as a performer and understand why a scene works. 

The best part about taking classes with Jason is how my communication and listening skills have improved in the real world; it has been some of the best personal and professional development I've done. I have more meaningful conversations because I am actively listening and finding points of connection with all different people; I'm also more aware of how my behaviors and non-verbal communications are perceived by others.

In San Francisco, we're still a growing comedy community, and Endgames Improv has been very lucky to work with Jason. His performances, and especially his teaching have really helped many of us level up our performances. I've seen so many people walk away from his coaching, workshops, and intensives with more authenticity, stronger reactions, and most importantly a sense of how to do this crazy thing that they didn't have before. He speaks specifically about how to thrive in scenes, and never gives up on anyone. I'd recommend him to anyone who's looking to go deeper in scene work, especially for longer, more honest, committed play.
