"Jeff Quintana is a remarkable teacher. I know him to be insightful, caring and affirming. He is also a great and very funny improviser!"

- Mick Napier

Annoyance Theatre in Chicago

Author of Improvise: Scene From The Inside Out and Behind The Scenes: Improvising Longform

"Jeff Quintana was a performer and a manager at iO for approximately 6 years. It's hard to say exactly how long because I'm never sure if he really left. Whenever he visits, he’s always on lights or on stage or coaching a group. That's because Jeff truly cares for this work and for the people involved. His attitude and personality are the epitome of what a good improviser needs to be. I urge anyone who reads this to support Jeff in his newest endeavor and I guarantee he will support you right back."
