The BCC is the most liberating improv philosophy. It fosters creativity but also care for fellow improvisers. I remember why I fell in love with improv at The BCC.

I learned to be bolder and more daring with my improv.

Jared’s continued ability to provide thoughtful, individualized feedback to each student throughout class is definitely one of his strong suits as an instructor. He was able to give constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement upon our weaknesses, all the while complimenting our demonstrated strengths.
— Student, Level 1 Class
I found it so refreshing to hear someone not just talk about diversity and inclusion and supporting artists but putting it into practice and engaging with artists who want to practice it, too. Thank you especially for broadening my perspective; but I want to bring people together and tell new and different stories. You showed me another way I can do that and I’m fired up about it.

“I’m in the middle of the BCC’s 4 day intensive. I’m getting to improvise with a New Yorker I knew, New Yorkers I didn’t know and improvisers from Sweden, Australia, Berlin, London and Portugal. It is so absurdly fun and I love those times when you get to fall in love with improv all over again.”
— Rachel, Summer Intensive student
The BCC stand-up class with Milly was truly excellent. It was well-structured and Milly is a non-judge mental, nurturing yet just-the-right-amount- of strict teacher and after much hard work, the payoff was huge - performing our stand up at the Brick Theater.

The only improv class I’ve ever taken that actually treats you as a unique, individual performer.

Philip did a great job of getting to know each of our improv styles personally. He is so fun and has such a joy about improv that it feels easy to enjoy myself in class. He is insanely intelligent and talented and I always felt like I was learning a new skill. I was never not having fun, I always looked forward to class!

Annie and BCC have helped me free myself from my own brain, letting me discover and experiment without prejudgement. It’s the most supportive and safe space that I’ve had the honor to play in.
— Student, Level 2 Class
I made a HUGE breakthrough just sitting their listening because I was feeling excited about my show. You took a three hour instructional workshop and made it joyful AF.
— Rachel Steele, Student at PRODUCING A SHOW WORKSHOP
I took Rachel Rosenthal’s Level 2 class here and it was amazing! One of the most informative and liberating improv experiences you can ask for.

Milly really has a wealth of knowledge. My favorite thing was how she treated the feedback part of class (after each student’s set) like a writer’s room in that she would give ideas on how to improve a joke, or perhaps a different way of wording it, or a different place to take it - thus giving the students the nudge to start working their OWN comedy muscle’s in similar ways. Milly is able to give the best constructive criticism - she never made anybody feel like their work or their questions were stupid/bad- she’d just give tips on how to improve, or answer the question in a way that didn’t make the asker feel silly.
