What Students are Saying

I had so much fun working with Brooke and learned a ton! Her teaching style is wonderful. She balances between pushing you while making you feel comfortable enough to really challenge yourself. She is very encouraging and will work with your different learning styles and goals. She is always happy to give advice on what steps you should take. I highly recommend taking a class with her, you will learn so much about yourself in a fun, welcoming environment.

Brooke came and led our Portland-based office in a combination improv and public speaking half-day session. It was so much fun, and very useful as well. She was well prepared to make the most of the time and also flexible to our needs and various skills as professionals. For anyone looking for an informative improv for business class or a fun and useful team-building activity, I would definitely recommend working with Brooke!

Brooke Totman is an actor, director and writer, appearing on stages in Los Angeles and Portland, and was a featured cast member on the television series, MadTV. She’s been bringing her talent and knowledge to the Portland area as both an artist and educator, for the last 20 years.

“Sometimes, I worry that I’m biased toward the spectacle of theatre—I love, love a big flashy show with all the bells and whistles. And then I see a show like 21ten Theatre’s LAUGHING WILD, and I remember that really great theatre doesn’t need any bells and whistles at all. A person in a chair delivering a 30-minute monologue can be just as riveting as a flying carpet, especially if that person is Brooke Totman. Her monologue is a master class in inhabiting a character”.
