WHAT STUDENTS SAY

JUNE 2020

I never thought I’d pay money for a comedy class, but I’m glad I did, and I learned a lot and met some cool people.  Thanks! 

MARCH 2020

I took improv with another company a few years back, and would say that LIT is far more professional. I feel like I learned a lot and grew from the LIT experience. From start to finish, it is a first class experience.  

DECEMBER 2019

I recommend comedy classes to any professional: The writing experience was invaluable.
