About the teacher:
James discovered improv in 2013, and soon fell in love with both the art form and the comedy. He trained with the Improv Conspiracy Melbourne, taking the stage to perform in cage matches with his team Black Xanadu. Upon returning to NZ, James met local Improviser/teacher extraordinaire Clare Kerrison, and co-founded BaseJump Improv to bring this exciting style of improv comedy to Wellington, where he is currently a teacher, coach, performer and producer. In his spare time, you'll find him in the kitchen toiling over a mean spag bol, or dabbling with the world of sketch comedy.
