"Stan's classes are the only reason I do comedy today.  The freedom to simply BE is a hard thing to teach, but he fosters an environment of play without judgment. His guidance allowed my creativity to blossom and led me from improv classes to TV acting to writing and producing my own web show!  Thank you Stan! “

“Shortly after I moved to Los Angeles, tony.jpg I stumbled upon The Empty Stage Theatre where I met Stan Wells, and asked him if I could start taking classes and, hopefully start performing as well. Stan was incredibly gracious from the start and welcomed me into the theater with open arms. I started taking classes, and having done Improv for almost 5 years in Chicago, soon enough Stan put me in some of the live Improv shows. I performed with a ton of ridiculously talented actors/comedians. This is where I met Sandeep Parikh, Mike Rose, and Felicia Day. If you like performing, and love doing Improv, Stan is the best kind of teacher and mentor. He teaches with laughter, sincerity, and a huge passion for this style and craft. It's definitely worth it. It was for me.”    Tony Janning co-writer and star of Legend of Neil
