Actor Reviews

Andy Parks is a great teacher and a lot of fun to work with, especially when it comes to improvisational comedy. He really helped me to open up my inner 'comedian'. I went from just trying to make people laugh to working with my scene partner for more genuine laughter from the audience. He helped me learn how to make more interesting character choices and broaden my views on what a scene was capable of. Not only did this improve many aspects of my acting abilities, not just comedy, but I gained more confidence in myself and my talents. Thanks Andy!
Colton Smith, Dixie Stampede/Comedian
Andy's class was life changing! I had an absolute blast! There are very few people in this world who have the ability to light up a room the way that he does. Andy's laughter, sincerity, and passion for people are contagious. You will learn how to trust yourself while creating. As well as other techniques that you can carry with you always. He really knows how to bring out your best! Believe me when I say, you will be forever changed!
