You can hear Bill Chott on CBS radio's Overnight America with Jon Grayson.
Big news this year for The Improv Trick and our founder Bill Chott. Bill appeared with Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary and won a Broadway World Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, and won the 2012 INNY award for "Best Improv Coach" in America.
But the REAL THUNDER is coming from our students, like John Johnston who just completed an improvised pilot - BOTTOMS UP! and B.J. Lange who is currently hosting MTV's Spring Break. And our corporate improv shows and workshops have been in the spotlight, too. Our most high profile project to date has been a series of training videos for VMware, a multinational software company.
Bill's television show Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place just wrapped a 4 season run. The show won an Emmy and has shattered several ratings records for cable television.
In L.A. things have never been stronger with the addition of a second class and performance venue in Pasadena.
In St. Louis, many of our students were in the film Up in The Air, the Jason Reitman film shot in St. Louis, starring George Clooney. The Improv Trick's Adrienne Lamping was cast as a bridesmaid and was chosen to appear in scenes with Clooney based on her training in improv.
Our founder, Bill Chott landed the cover of the Village Voice Riverfront Times. That issue followed an issue that celebrated The Improv Trick with a Mastermind award and The Best of St. Louis award.
We were honored by St. Louis Magainze by being placed on 2010's "A List."
Comedian Bill Chott has gotten plenty of laughs outside of St. Louis through the years, thanks to his gigs on Saturday Night Live, The Dana Carvey Show and in The Ringer. But he gets even higher marks for never forgetting his hometown.
