"Will Hines was my first improv teacher. He's not an improv nut, but he is, you know? He has perspective. " - Ilana Glazer, Broad City

"Will is one of those teachers that makes you feel like you have something special inside yourself- that you can possibly change the world. " - Abbi Jacobson, Broad City

"Despite being a mild mannered man from Connecticut, it's fair to consider Will one of improv's war chiefs, or maybe witch doctors. I'm not sure. This analogy has run its course. " -Chris Gethard, The Chris Gethard Show

"I haven't improvised in a loooong time, but Will Hines wrote a book that makes me want to. I'm tearing through it" - Rich Sommer, Mad Men, UCB improv team America

"I read this book" - Shannon O'Neill, Artistic Director of UCB NY
