How did improv change your life?

“Improv has changed my life substantially. First and foremost I have met some of the most driven talented and wonderful people in my life. It has changed my career as an actor and allowed me to be on stage making people laugh which has always been a dream of mine, and to be able to do it on this stage with this group of people is truly incredible and I feel very lucky.”
