Jesse Cornett, Gresham Chamber of Commerce

When I recommended in a staff meeting that we spend money to hire a comedian to teach our organization’s members how to use improv techniques as a way to improve their business, I got a lot of blank stares. Several months later, Jay did just that. Jay’s quickly become the most talked about session we’ve conducted in a long time. Should you have him come to your company training? YES AND you should book him before he becomes too big time.

He is brilliant at analyzing what people need to work on,he is direct,rigorous and doesn't let anything slip by.He is also very heart centered and adds a very special component of love,gratitude and presence to his classes that makes an enormous difference to the ensemble.

Jay is the best coach I've ever had on any subject. Full Stop. 
Jay gives you the best, worst news you've heard. Which is to say, he gave me specific, detailed, and actionable feedback that pushed me to be better. His coaching is in bite-sized pieces (even if it wasn't always easy to swallow) and delivered it in a kind, thoughtful manner. 
His warm-up choices always tied into the class material, allowing us to isolate and explore different elements of improv. I also appreciated the positive space he created for reflection about our performances.
