Reviews of Bob Fisher:
“Bob is an excellent instructor who brings his experience to the classroom without making the course feel like we’re just reliving his experiences. His side-coaching and notes are applicable and actionable. Nothing seems to get by him and he’s truly helped me level up my game. He deserves a t-shirt. “
“ What sets the tone for an improv class is the instructor. Bob was encouraging, thoughtful – excellent. “
“ Bob provided a positive environment to learn improv and grow as a performer. He provided thoughtful notes from his expertise and instructed on ways to not only have joy in scenes, but also to remember to mix it up and try on other meat suits, not only to surprise the ensemble but also to surprise yourself. “
