Don’t plow through Christmas. Take your time. If we don’t, it’s over way too fast, and no one feels special or loved or good.


Explaining how to crawl to a baby doesn’t help them crawl; it only makes them a more self-conscious baby.


Don’t be an Irish graveyard, stacking your scenes, one on top of the next, in the same six feet of space.

Challenge yourself to be better in every way.

Aerodynamics of Yes

Good improv can seem magical, but let’s not make it more mystical than it is. Stop praying to the improv Gods and take responsibilty for what you can control. Sweat the technique, be empowered by it, understand the science and why it works. Then trust in it, play confidently, and be excellent to each other.

Christian Capozzoli is the real deal. His teaching style gets to the heart of the matter and finds results, great results. He went to Harvard, this is Ivy League improv instruction. Learn The Aerodynamics of Yes from one of the best emerging minds in New York improvisation. Alistair Cook

Christian Capozzoli is one of the finest improv teachers I’ve worked with. His work with matching energies was a revelation, and his ability to explain his concepts clearly AND present exercises that get them into your body is exceptional. This is some of the easiest and most releasing improv I’ve ever done. And it’s of enormous benefit to improvisers and actors alike. I’m already incorporating his work in my improvisation classes for college theatre majors. Dan Diggles
