The Prep In Eatontown to Host IMPROV JAM & CESD Talent Agency's Kerri Krilla for Weekend Workshop


The Prep In Eatontown to Host IMPROV JAM & CESD Talent Agency's Kerri Krilla for Weekend Workshop For over 20 years Improv Jam has been a leader in the underground movement to cultivate New Jersey comedy for the masses, creating a unique performance environment that includes every aspect of comedy. Throughout that time, their weekly shows have highlighted "Whose Line is it Anyway?" style improvisation, giving audiences the opportunity to experience AND help create a brand new show every evening.

ImprovJam alums include Nathan Fillion (star of ABC's "Castle"), Lou Taylor Pucci (star of "The Story of Luke" and "Evil Dead"), and Lorene Scafaria (writer "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist" & "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"), and Sean O'Connor, (writer on "The Late Late Show with James Corden"). Mike O'Keeffe has been performing and teaching improv comedy professionally for over 25 years. After graduating from Villanova University in 1989, he worked in Orlando, Florida with the Sak Theatre Comedy Lab, where troupe-mates included cast members of "Whose Line is it Anyway?", "Castle" and "The Office". He received his MA in Education from Monmouth University in 1996, and has been a public school teacher for 20 years. He has done regional improv touring shows with former troupemate Wayne Brady, and has traveled across the country performing corporate comedy and team-building. He has developed programs to assist medical, education, and corporate professionals in their communication and leadership skills. He also works with many schools to help eradicate bullying, and to become better leaders. Recently, he presented a TED Talk on the concept of "Play" called "Using Improv to Become a Better Human". Mike is an Adjunct Professor at Monmouth University, where he teaches Critical Discourse. Last spring, he was a keynote speaker at the National Youth Leadership Council's, "More Powerful Together" conference in Washington DC, which brought together educational leaders and future educators. Just last week he was hired by both Ocean County College and New Horizons in Autism to teach his improv program "Laughing With Me" for children, teens, and adults with ASD.
