“Improv was an outlet for me when I was going through a rough time in life. I quickly learned how the principles of improvisational comedy can be applied to everyone and all aspects of life,” Whitley shared. “It’s great not only for actors and comedians but it’s also perfect for the everyday business person looking to get more comfortable in front of people.
