Where Improv Meets communication
Communication. Collaboration. Creation
"If you have the smallest inkling that you want to try improv, do yourself a favor and do it! In Jaime’s classes, you will be encouraged to leave your troubles and inhibition at the door and learn how to truly live in the moment. I love interacting with my classmates — a diverse group of people who were also willing to take a chance and try something new. Jaime creates an incredibly supportive environment; we all encourage one another and feed off each other’s energy.
"Alhambra's Advanced Drama Class just completed a weeklong improvisation workshop with Jaime and Randy, and the kids learned so much and had a great time. Both presenters are experts in improv acting, and did a great job sequencing and teaching activities to build on the students' skills. Every class was active and exciting for the students, and I saw growth in their confidence and improv skills as the week progressed. A wonderful week of educational fun."
"I signed up for this Improv class for something fun to do for myself. But as I'm leaning more about the tenets of improv, I'm realizing how useful these skills are. The techniques I'm learning help me be a better member of any team I'm on, whether that be at work, or in my personal relationships. So it's personal development, and it's FUN!"
Jamie, from Spontaneous Mind, is a wonderful improv teacher. Her classes are well structured with easy explanations and lots of fun games and exercises. I found her to be warm, welcoming, patient, and accepting of everyone, no matter their skill level. I always have a good time and look forward to my weekly class. Anyone interested in Improv and/or having some fun should check out Spontaneous Mind!
I’m Tim Orr, Artistic Director of Improv Playhouse of San Francisco. I’m writing in support of Funny Bones Productions, specifically Randy Wight and Jaime Rich.
In December of 2021, Improv Playhouse was looking to do its first in-person shows in almost two years. Randy and Jaime stepped up and invited us perform at the Campbell Theatre in Martinez. Their professionalism, generosity and communication was stellar along every step of the way. They went out of their way to ensure that our experience was a memorable one.
In my experience co-producing shows at many venues around the Bay Area (as well as nationally and internationally), I find that it is (unfortunately) unusual to work with such welcoming and competent individuals. The treated us as if they were inviting us into their home.
I can heartily recommend Randy and Jaime not only as producers, but also as on going colleagues and outstanding contributors to their communities.
