Deana Criess

Teaching Style: I am your biggest cheerleader, your biggest fan and your most supportive critic. You learn and get better when I am doing my job, and my job is to tell you what you need to work on. I will set you up for success, I will give you the tools to achieve what I am asking of you, and I will assume you can do this - because if we have the right approach you can. We will work, you will be pushed and all the while you will know that I am on your side. There will be sweat, there will be challenges, and there will always be joy.

Bio: Deana Criess is the Director of ImprovBoston’s National Touring Company and is a member of ImprovBoston's Mainstage and Musical Improv Casts. She is also the co-director with Ben Scurria of Over the Line, part of the Last Laugh late night improv series.

Her industry leading workshops have been featured on PBS, NPR, KBS (the Korean Broadcasting System) and in The Boston Globe. Her comedy has been featured on CNN and Slate.com. A veteran instructor in ImprovBoston’s Comedy School, she has over 15 years of professional experience with audiences of all ages performing and teaching longform and shortform improvisation as well as sketch writing and stand up comedy. During her years in comedy she has worked with some amazing artists including Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Laura Hall (Whose Line Is It Anyway), Eric Drysdale (Full Frontal), Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight), Anthony Atamanuik (The President Show), Jen Kirkman (Drunk History), Janeane Garofalo, Kevin McDonald (Kids In The Hall), Dave Razowsky (Second City) and many more.

Instructor:

Mike Descoteaux

Teaching Style: When I think back to my favorite teachers, both in improv and school, they had the right combination of praise and feedback. Since I teach at levels 201 and 301, there is a mixture of people who are learning improv because it's a fun, social activity and also students who want to make improv a career path. With that combination, I like to let students play as much as possible while still carving out time after games and scenes to talk about what worked and what didn't. My job as your instructor is not to tell you what you did wrong since your art it yours alone to judge. My job is to be your cheerleader, your resource for questions about your improv journey and your teacher who points out ways you can make your life easier on stage. Previous students would likely say I made the class feel fun, close knit, supportive, safe and a good combination of "here's what I loved about that and here's something to think about for next time."

Bio: Mike Descoteaux is the Artistic Director of ImprovBoston and former director of the nationally renown Charles River Creative Arts Program as well as founder of the celebrated Music Program at The Second City Training Center in Chicago. Among other notable arts leadership positions, Mike is founder and director of the critically acclaimed sketch satire, Best Church of God, named “Best Sketch Comedy in Chicago” several years running. In various capacities, Mike has collaborated with Tony, Emmy and Oscar-award winning artists and, with equal passion, students and emerging artists of all ages. A smattering of the artists Mike has had the privilege to work alongside include Stephen Colbert, Martin Short, Keegan Michael-Key, Richard Kind, Rachel Dratch, Brian Gallivan, Nicole Parker, TJ Jagadowki, Scott Adsit, Joe Bill, Dave Razowski, Vanessa Bayer, Mick Napier, Aidy Bryant, Jack McBrayer, Jason Robert Brown, Norbert Leo-Butz, Jackie Hoffman, Jill Bernard, Kevin McDonald and comedy giants like Baby Wants Candy, Improvised Shakespeare, The Annoyance, ComedySportz, iO, and the Magnet. Mike has directed ImprovBoston's National Touring Company, The Family Show, and numerous indie sketch and improv ensembles. Mike has been seen on NBC, CBS, A&E, and WGN. Mike, a Northwestern University grad, has received a Jeff Award, After Dark Award, Paynter Award and was named one of the top young songwriters in the country by the Johnny Mercer/AMTP association. Mike is thrilled to combine his experience in improv, teaching, directing, music and arts management into this one dream position serving this one dream community.
