Reviews of Tim McKendrick:
“Tim was one of the best instructors I’ve ever had. I really enjoyed his teaching style and felt as though he structured his classes in a way that made the best use of the time. Tim put the students first and taught in a way that was universal to everyone no matter where their skills were at and I always felt I took so much away from class every week. He gave us room to goof and do shit scenes (and not feel bad about it) but also challenged you to do your best and play to the top of your intelligence. If I could take a class with him again I would in a heartbeat and I recommend his class to anyone who comes to the Annoyance.”
“Tim was a fantastic improv coach and I really appreciated his feedback. I think the exercises were fantastic and I hadn’t done many of them before at other theaters. I thought he gave us an exceptional amount of play time, which I REALLY appreciated and loved.“
