“I love love love the class and SOOOOO appreciate [Pam's] teaching! It’s the perfect combination of fun, inspired, challenging, exciting, instructive, AND kind! And encouraging.

-Kyra A., Zen of Improv student


"I took a class thinking it would be great for working on my public speaking fears. But I discovered a path to greater presence and connection in my whole life. And it's fun! And funny! I'm totally hooked now. Who knew?"

-David M.

Your Entryways to The Happier Valley Comedy School:

"I went to a fantastic improv class given by Pam Victor tonight. Fun, and exactly as she promised, a break from all the pressure of being in my head all the time. Usually only sex does that, so I'm impressed."

-Joli H., Zen of Improv Student (and Sex Educator, so she should know)

"Pam’s workshop brought new light to critical elements of successful team practices and communication opportunities. Pam was thoughtful and engaging, setting at ease both introverts and extroverts in her activities. Since we worked with Pam, my team has drawn on her workshop lessons many times to help frame feedback and motivate change. Pam is a true professional in her craft, and I am looking forward to the next opportunity to learn from her!"
