About Greg Tavares. Even after studying with Jay, he has continued to be a large part of my life and pushed me to continue with improv. I am very fortunate to have Jay as a mentor in my life. I found Jay approachable, passionate , genuine , and encouraging. He consistently created a very open , accepting , and positive atmosphere in class, making it easy to drop any walls and be completely open to learning. Treating everyone as an individual and as if our class was his only one though I know he does multiple classes and projects at a time , there Treating everyone as an individual and as if our class was his only one though I know he does multiple classes and projects at a time , there was never a moment where I felt that his entire focus and energy was anywhere else but with us.
Jay is a uniquely talented , energetic and imaginative improviser. He is unfailingly adored by his coworkers and clients.
Improv for Everyone
As an individual, he is is rock solid dependable with good common sense, great people skills and is a pleasure to improvise and work with. He was absolutely awesome. His constant positive energy really brought out the best in me and my entire ensemble.
Looking back on our 5 classes together, we all thought we did our best work with Jay coaching us. It's hard to believe someone this funny and creative can also be a nice person , but Jay is! It was always a pleasure to work with him because he was giving as an improvisor and always respectful of other people.
His ability to model these traits in his coaching of the ensemble provided at once an example to which His ability to model these traits in his coaching of the ensemble provided at once an example to which I wanted to aspire and also grounded me to stretch myself out of my comfort zone. His toolkit of strategies, activities, games, warm-ups, and creativity seemed unlimited.
He exhibits true passion about what he is teaching. Throughout the experience working with our group, Jay was extremely attentive and focused on each individual. He also provided notes that were easy to understand and constructive while also encouraging. Jay has a unique gift where he can provide constructive or what some might view as negative feedback in a way that is very easy to digest and understand.
He possesses the ability to critique without being overly critical and still checks for understanding. Another thing that has impressed and helped me is that Jay keeps in touch with his students through email blasts to alert everyone about opportunities for further study, auditions or to watch other performers.

As a student you feel there is a caring that lasts beyond the classroom and halls of the training center. I recommend Jay with heartfelt enthusiasm and know that he will add tremendous value to whatever endeavors are pursued. As a relatively new-comer to improv I was fortunate to have been selected by Jay to be a member of his Coached Ensemble at The Second City this past May.
The entire experience under his direction was very important to me and if I may, I would like to explain why. Just a week before the Coached Ensemble auditions my Just a week before the Coached Ensemble auditions my level B class teacher told us that it would be a good idea to go to an audition for the experience.
So, I went - for the experience. To my complete surprise the next morning I got an e-mail from Jay saying that I was selected. I was so excited. But then, when reality hit, I was very scared because I had never been on a stage before. I decided I would go to one rehearsal then admit to Jay and the group that I was not ready to be in front of an audience.
However, after the very first day of rehearsal I began learning from Jay how to " play ". He made each rehearsal a happy time of learning this art form by stretching our minds and imaginations and how to really connect with our ensemble partners. Instead of hearing that judging little voice in my head making me feel bad there was Jay's quiet voice at just exactly the right second making everything fun, positive, and creative with his suggestions.
As he directed us in rehearsals he taught me how to think of a scene in new and surprising ways and I looked forward to learning more from him. He built my confidence and now I felt I could actually do these shows! Because of him I was not only able but happy to go on stage and give improv performance a try.
After our shows Jay spent time with each of us by quoting our best, most interesting and funniest lines. This is not to say that Jay did not critique our work - he certainly did. It was done, however, in a way that reminded us to learn from what did not go well and then let it go. The critique was always given with a huge kind heart and a big proud smile.
His teaching style is very liberating and out of the box. I am forever in his debt and I will never forget Jay Sukow. Jay Sukow is one of the few true servant-leaders of the improv world. Unflinching in his support of green talent, whether onstage or off, his ability to selflessly nurture the gifts of fellow improvisers and create an atmosphere of total acceptance makes him an ideal ally, whether as an advisor or stage mate.
Also, he's damn funny. Jay is a purist when it comes to detail and craft. His mastery and brilliance at improv shined through every day I trained with him. I can highly recommend him as a teacher.

Jay was one of the best Improv coaches I ever had. His knowledge and experience about the art of Improv comedy were of immeasurable benefit to me. And he always communicated his ideas and his wants in a clear and respectful way. Even after years, I still remember being coached by Jay.
Jay is a very talented , smart performer. Chicago is lucky to have him!
Welcome to Reddit,
