Want to stretch your creativity, have some fun, and bust out of your shell?
Do you want to conquer the feelings of being socially awkward, introverted, embarrassed around your peers, or at a loss for words when it matters most?
We are launching a brand new Introduction to Improvisational Theater (Beginning Improv) Class starting January 9th at 6:00 pm at the Thumbnail Theater in Snohomish to solve this very problem!
When I first began Crackpot Comedy, I wrote my students and followers emails and blog articles explaining my mission to help them be less of a humorless bore.
Sadly, I still feel like a failure since even though I helped some people, the annoying people of the world seem to be multiplying.
It has gotten me so riled up that I want to ATTACK the problem even more vigorously with the art of improv comedy.
[Cue music: "Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting"]
Probably more people than you think feel socially awkward, shy, embarrassed around their peers, or at a loss for words. I talk to many people stuck in a rut, or who feel they need more creativity and fun in their lives. Still, others suffer from not feeling accepted. Worse, we all have to deal with annoying people!
It makes me sad to think of all the individual suffering in the world. So many people sulk through lives of quiet desperation.
That’s why I want to do my part and take some action to make a difference.
The solution is not a pop-psychology book or a boring seminar!
The answer is the dynamic world of Improvisational theater, which is by far one of the best ways I have ever seen to accomplish the following:
- Communication Skills
- Creative Exploration and Expression
- Being loved as a member of a select group
And while achieving all of this in your life, the best part of all is that you can do it while having enormous fun, with gut-busting laughs at the same time!
Here's what one of our students said about our class...
"I want to personally thank you again for providing us this opportunity. It is rare when I can find something I enjoy that Nancy does as well. The friendly environment you provide, which I don’t think is all that common in a “theater arts learning” setting, really enables this to happen. For us to have the opportunity to do something together is really special. Who knows, maybe you will make us all famous someday 🙂
Thanks a bunch, looking forward to a lot more fun this coming year."
~Bill Dewey, Marysville, WA

Save $185 Off Retail. An 8-week class with a similar description at a local theater costs $285, and we are only charging $100 for the entire 8-week course. Plus, as a bonus, you get weekly class notes and actions steps are also going to be made available to attendees, along with access to our students-only private Facebook group.
Why are we offering this at such a deeply discounted price?
We have had a lot of people that have expressed interest in taking a class, but they don't feel that they can jump right into an intermediate improv group, much less play with the advanced improvisers.
However, we also realize that to start a new improv group requires work, and we wanted to give an incentive to our students to jump on this and tell their friends, and we wanted this price to be buzz-worthy!
Here are the details of the class:
