From Our Actors...

“I just took Crista’s on-camera comedy class.  It is truly the best on-camera class I’ve taken in Los Angeles. For the first time I feel like I have a real vocabulary and technical understanding of this work. 

A class can’t teach you to be funny, though that is the result. This class offers the tools to understand why things are funny, so that you can be free to make choices. The only downside…I found it deeply frustrating to not have encountered this information and training sooner.”
