The 2 hour comedy class with Dave was so much fun. It was the perfect ice breaker and team building exercise for our team of 8 people. We laughed loads and got to know each other so much better. Highly recommend this class.

A fun, energised and relaxed class! Great way to spend an evening on your own or with friends. Loved it.

Lots of activities to get the mind out of the body and being able to apply the techniques in every day conversations. Allowing us to connect body with movement, ideation and becoming free in our body to do what is needed in that moment. Great space and great people.

Great class! I had a fun time with the instructor and my fellow classmates, would recommend!

Had a great time in the class, David was super accommodating and the dude is super fun and chill! The show was super fun too, the first half was amazingly cringe and second was genuinely hilarious. Whether you're looking for a trainwreck or a belly laugh you will probably find both. Huge recommend!

Dave, the teacher is confident, an excellent communicator and has a great sense of humour. He takes time to find out from each student what they hope to achieve in the class.

The venue is conveniently located within walking distance from Central Station.

I learnt skills that I could use in everyday life and at work e.g. ways to come up with ideas, building on the ideas of others, team bonding, etc.

What I enjoyed most was, learning practical skills and releasing the inner creativity in a friendly environment.

We hung out for dinner and drinks after class which was a great opportunity to further interact with students and make friendships.

Overall, it was a fun, productive and social night out - what more could I have asked for?

Amazing session, the teacher Dave gave expert tips and I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking to get out of their heads and people trying to be more confident and spontaneous. The group was also very friendly and easy to interact with.

The workshop is well-structured and really practical. There are A-Ha! moments in the class which will look at our communications in a different perspective. David and Jacob are both professional with their fun and relaxed teaching style. They tailor the class to their students’ needs. We are treated to a comedy show at the end of the class using the techniques we have learnt. If you are looking at improving your improvisation skills using the performance approach, this is the class to take.
