About the teachers:
James discovered improv in 2013, and soon fell in love with both the art form and the comedy. He trained with the Improv Conspiracy Melbourne, and upon returning to NZ, co-founded BaseJump Improv to bring this exciting style of improv comedy to Wellington. When he’s not teaching, performing or producing, you’ll find him in the kitchen toiling over a mean spag bol, or dabbling with the world of sketch comedy.

Student testimonials:

“This class is like yoga for the brain! I left feeling challenged, stretched, refreshed and happier in my own skin” – Kathryn, term one 2019
