"Thank you for giving me a chance. Thank you for getting on my case when you knew I could do better. Thanks for helping me strengthen my inner tools: my ears, my eyes, my gut. Lastly, thank you for the love of improv."
"Just want to say again, how blessed and lucky I feel that I have gotten the opportunity to do Improv and learn from [Swithun]. [His] classes and play are the best. Doing real acting on the stage with a script is a different animal, but with all the experience and lessons, I've got a great tool bag...." -Micahel A.
"One of my main goals in joining the Village Idiots was to become a better writer. The more I rehearsed and performed, the more I wrote, and the better my material became. Writing is now a major part of my free time and something I’m pursuing professionally....
I’m definitely a more versatile and creative performer/writer because of The Village Idiots and Swithun No. It’s been a crazy, fun, educational ride."
"Thank you so much for everything you taught me about improv and providing many opportunities and setting me up to take advantage of opportunities that came my way! I had done a little acting, but when I didn't get a role, I decided to take a couple weeks of improv classes to kill some time until the next role came around. I took some improv classes with Village idiots, and turned out to be the best choice I could have made! ...I am grateful for all the memories created during my experience with the Village Idiots and continue to use that training on stage and in life."
"If you’re wondering if you should take these classes under Swithun’s instruction, don’t hesitate, Jump in! Swithun No is one of the best improv instructors in the field. His knowledge and expertise is real, the classes are fun, informative, and professional. He pushes you to do your best, if you’re willing to involve yourself. You’re going to grow artistically and professionally. This is professional training from the start to the finish, I have taken other classes with other teachers, and not a one has come close to the involvement and personable environment under Swithun No." -David Morales
