Then this course is for you!

Improvisation – Level 1

Improvisation is a fun yet powerful way to release your creative potential in a fun and supportive environment! On the course, we explore the basics and fundamentals of improvisation both as a performing and life skill. The course and workshops are designed to be fun and liberating as we unlock our creativity and conquer any inhibitions or fears we harbor.

In the modern hybrid working environment with more face to face interactions, our need for connectivity, having outlets outside of home and work, and recharging our personal and professional relationship skills becomes important again. Improv is a great tool to further develop and enhance these skills.

At the end of the course, participants will grasp the fundamentals of improvisation and will be able to apply those new skills to your personal, work and performing life.

Prepare to unleash your creative, spontaneous self!

For a bit more insight into what you can get out of doing improv, check out the video below from Improv Fest Ireland, when Neil trained Síle Seoige, Daniella Moyles, Jenny Buckley, Rick O’Shea, Paddy McKenna and Shane Gillen in improv before bringing them on stage for a show in aid of Crumlin’s Children’s Hospital.



“I have to be honest, the first time I met Neil, I was scared. Scared because I didn’t really know what improv was about and I had no idea if I could do it or not! But in the space of an hour learning the basics, I went from reserved to liberated, I was hooked! I discovered straight away that improv is for anyone and everyone and that there are no mistakes only opportunities! All you have to do is let go, listen to your fellow improvisors and simply let the magic happen. I’ve had such a brilliant time taking part in Neil’s course and I’d highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn a bit more about themselves and anyone who wants to feel like a kid again and just play!”

Síle Seoige (TV Presenter)

“Improv with Neil surpassed my expectations in many ways. The classes delivered were far more enjoyable and fun than I could have imagined. That was in part due to the nature of improv but in much larger part due to Neil’s skills in teaching, understanding, perception and communication. I was imagining a tuition on how to “do” whose line is it anyway type of scenarios but was surprised to be exploring the barriers that we have constructed as adults. And then I was given the encouragement and space to tear these barriers down and relearn vital skills we had as children. Subsequently life is now viewed through a different prism with a clarity that has more colours and depth of perception than ever before.”

– Dr. Sim Lew-Gor, Consultant, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin

“I highly recommend Neil’s course to anyone with a fear of public speaking or if they suffer from social anxiety. Aside from learning some really valuable skills, feeling brilliant and overcoming my own fears, I met some of the best people and have made some life-long friends. Improv is so liberating! I’m so glad I did it.”

– Anna Shelswell-White (Editor, House & Home Magazine )


“A class like no other. Honestly, I can’t thank you enough for creating such a warm safe learning space, caring for our sensitive brains and hearts whilst exposing us to such exciting and delightful play. I’ve been in lots of learning environments over the years but never one led with such a grounded emotionally safe, clarity and compassion-filled tone and so I thank you thousands for establishing just that, filling it with magic moments of made-up-ness”

– Lisa Walsh (Improv Level 1 & 2 Participant)


“I had many reasons for wanting to do Neil’s improv course. What I got from the course was a whole lot more. Neil not only taught me about improv, he also taught me about having self confidence and about living in the moment. The most important thing I learned from Neil’s improv class is freedom, simply just freedom. Doing improv is an amazing experience and Neil is an excellent tutor who mentors his students every step of the way. It will be the best thing you ever do so go do it!”

– Amanda Whitehead (TheComedyScoop.com / Krank.ie )

“Neil’s Level 1 and 2 improv exceeded my expectations. He has an inspirational teaching style that gave me the freedom to express myself and try out new experiences in a safe environment. The techniques and exercises were really well paced and Neil has a unique ability to bring everyone along at their own pace. From someone who didn’t even want to get up and do a single scene on day one- trust me, once Neil gets you to the end of Level 2 you will be dying to do your own live show!

– Louise McHugh (Lecturer, UCD)

“Neil’s improv course was fantastically organised and focused on a different theme each week. This made the whole process really satisfying as we could see the group growing and improving together. I was SO nervous before the first class as I had just recently seen my first improv show and been blown away! However, I’m now a total improv addict. It’s one of the most freeing, meditative and fun things you can do.. so DO IT!”

– Pearl O’Rourke (‘Tumbleweed’/”Histrionic”  Improv Troupe)

“To say that I enjoyed the Neil’s improv course is an understatement. During of the course the group really bonded and week on week we could see the improvement in each other communication and improvisation skills and that was very much due to Neil’s tuition. I learned loads and thoroughly enjoyed it. Neil really knows his improv!”

– Cathal O’D. (Student and co founder of “A Pile Of Rocks” Improv troupe)

“Neil has a natural talent of bringing people together in a creative and dynamic way.”

– Deirdre M. (Student)

“It gave us the opportunity to think outside our usual habits, and in particular I learned to take my head out of my smart phone and laptop and give people the attention they deserve. This small point alone helps me communicate, and ultimately do my job, better. I thought Neil’s instruction was particularly good and he mediated the group in a masterful way, guiding us through exercises and putting everyone at ease while out of their comfort zones. We would highly recommend this workshop!”

– Aoife B. (Student)

Neil created a really safe, fun and supportive environment and he is fantastic teacher. Improv was always something that I loved watching and admired the performers hugely but never would have had the confidence to do myself until now. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and can’t wait to do more!

– Christine L. (Student)

    Great course! Did the level 1 course last October! Neil teaches the course in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere! The course pushes you to break away from routine, habit and express yourself in different ways! It can really improve your performance skills! And it was hilarious! I never laughed so hard! Well worth it!!

    Have invited Neil’s group to a festival engagement, and have had very positive improv jam experiences with him in person. I recommend Neil for his professionalism and his dedication to furthering the craft of improvisational theatre in Ireland.
