About this pro

How does your business stand out?

People have FUN when they take an Improv Trick workshop, and even more FUN when they see an Improv Trick show. And if you book a show with me, many of your attendees will recognize me from TV and film.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the sound of laughter, and even more than that I love it when I can see that I've sparked a new idea with someone because of improv.

    I recently had Bill come out to PwC and do a connectivity event for our team. We had a blast and learned some important teaming skills. Bottom line, Bill knows his stuff and was able to create a synergy that was lacking between us. Bibity, bibity bop.

    Bill's that rare jewel: an artist whose professional chops are as committed and honed as his genuine, life-loving people skills. He's a joy to work with and a joy to watch at work and play. As real as the real deal gets!

    Bill is a great comedian and wonderful encouraging teacher. He does a great job of creating a safe and fun environment for his students. His wit and charm make him a superior comic host for the live shows. I recommend him.

    He is one of the top comedy writers of our time from one of the most award winning comedy shows of all times. Can we say Saturday Night Live? He is one of the funniest comedic actors of our times from one of the top rated comedies on The Disney Channel. Can we say The Wizards of Waverly Place? He has a most impressive list of appearances in some of top rated comedy films of our time. Can we say Dude Where is My Car? If you want to learn from the best then look no further The Improv Trick is your one stop shop for improvisation brought to you by one of the masters of the craft Mr. Bill Chott.

    Bill Chott is a master. I've seen the good, bad & greedy coaches/teachers etc in this town ... Bill Chott fights for truth justice & good ol'fashioned belly laughs by passing on the best of acting/improve theory & practice to his students in a familiar & efficient format. I've been practicing and studying the performance arts here in my home town of Hollywood for more than 20 years and can say without hesitation that you get your money's worth & then some at The Improv Trick. It's upped my tired game x10.

    I have taken some classes with Bill. I was probably the oldest person in his classes. There were always young people because of the Disney show connection. But no matter what age, we all had fun. Bill helped me gain confidence through the improv, that I later took stand up classes also. So now I do improv and stand up. So thanks, Bill. You gave taught me a lot.

    I started doing improv through Bill's Lifetime class this past summer and progressed to his Enter the Zone class, and I now comfortably participate in improv jams. Excellent teacher, wonderful community. Highly recommended!
