“Lose that which no longer serves you,” and “Be the Santa of Now Town.” I remember leaving your class thinking, “I want to worship at the church of Dave Razowsky!” Spending anytime with Razowsky, be it in a class, workshop or drop-in, will have a profound impact on the way you see and understand improv. You will definitely have “Ah Hah” moments.

I just learned more about improv and life in general in the last three hours than in my last three years improvising.

A Mind Map of Razowsky’s Teachings by Bob Kodzis
David Razowsky is a genius of improvisation.
You will learn to trust your impulses and embody the truth.
Here’s what I learned:
- To trust your impulses and embody the truth.
- To trust being right, and not worry about being wrong.
- To never hold back.
- To take and give and it will create fluidity.
- To bend to meet the fact.
- To Receive and Give.
- To work off of your impulse and have a point of view. That’s the truth.
- To hold on to your want. And at the same time surrender to the other, the moment.
- To work moment to moment.
- To let go of your ego.
- To stay Present and Aware
- To feel what just happened to you. Let it land.
- To notice everything!
David’s teaching is truly transformative. His approach is thoughtful, while his technique compels you to find the truth in every moment, and express it without fear of failure.
