I was a student in some of the first Comedy Playground classes and now I’m thrilled to be a teaching assistant/intern and help out whenever possible (Teenagers aren’t normally the most open or expressive people and it’s so gratifying to watch/help them realize they’re free to express their opinions and feelings and learn turn those thoughts into something creative and funny.)
Comedy Playground has afforded me the opportunity of a lifetime. I truly believe that if I hadn’t found Comedy Playground as a kid, I’d be a very different person today. As a teen I was sullen and miserable (which is really unique, I know.) I felt, as many do, that nobody cared to listen to what I had to say and that I had nothing of value to offer people. Comedy Playground has changed all of that and helped me realize my creative potential (and not just in comedy either!) There were times in high school where CP classes were the only thing that made me feel truly happy, and I’m so grateful for that.
