I’m currently on faculty at the Atlantic Acting School, so if you’re jonesing to spend a whole semester with me, I recommend applying there.
I coach improv teams, sketch groups, actors and stand-up comedians, in addition to corporate and professional coaching, such as workshops, keynote addresses and presentations. I can help you develop your next show, figure out the next steps in producing your work, prep for auditions, and write punch-up.
Over here on the right are some very kind words said by some very kind people about working with me, in case you were thinking about taking a workshop or scheduling a coaching session. If I've got any upcoming workshops, they'll be listed below. If there's nothing there, check back, or sign up for my email list to find out when more workshops are going up.
If you'd like to talk about booking a session or have questions about any upcoming workshops (or anything at all, really), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Limited to 14 students each, the foundation of this 2-hour, single-session workshop will be scenework, with Kevin sidecoaching you throughout. His sidecoaching has headlined the Denver Improv Festival, the New York City Improv Festival, New Ohio Theatre, the Paradise Factory, and The People's Improv Theater in New York City, and has been featured on the Improv Noise podcast. This workshop walks you through a 20-minute warmup followed by continual, linked scenes. After a 25-40 minute set, the group will engage in a brief discussion and then continue performing, with ancillary exercises occurring within your entire, performative set (just like a Sidecoach show.) Because of the nature of the form focusing on simplicity of behavior, Sidecoach workshops are open to improvisers of all skill levels– Any improv experience will do, but this is not recommended for your first improv class or workshop.
Kevin’s sidecoaching is designed to relieve you from the burden of creating scene, plot, or story. You will be actively and consistently coached towards focusing on the minutiae of the physical activity, environment, and partner moment-to-moment, noticing offers as they come. Then, you’ll be guided towards the storytelling work you’re already doing subconsciously. By the time your conscious improviser-brain catches up, you’re 80% of the way through your scene. This kind of sidecoaching alleviates performance pressure and shows you how many sophisticated narrative and character choices you’re already making.
As with all of Kevin’s improv workshops, he teaches from the premise of doing less– Discover the kind of work that happens when your fellow performers position themselves to be free from the burden of initiation.
Each workshop is $45. If you’d like to join Kevin for two that day, it’s $70. For three (you’re out of control!), it's $90. Please wear clothes you can move in comfortably.
