What The MaD JaCKRaTS say about how their experience at LPN Studios has drawn them

to form and commit to this monthly show

}“LPNSImprov has taught me to think on my feet. That voice in my head that used to say, “no” is gone!”  -Christina Orloff

“Being in LPNSImprov has taught me to use what I was borne with and develop that. Sometimes your natural quirkiness

can become your niche.”

-Jeremy Howard

“The LPNSImprov made me confident that I can be sharp, witty, and funny! And my commercial booking rate has skyrocketed since I started!  It's simply addicting. LPN Improv: My anti-drug.” 

-Micky Shiloah

“LPNSImprov has given me the freedom to experiment. Any character I can think of, I now have the tools to make it happen!”

-Kuali’i Wittman

"LPN’s teaching methods are truly one of a kind. There’s no limit to what you can learn from her, and, of course her signature improv format"

-Susana Woo

“LPNS form of Improv has given me freedom to create and live in any situation without second guessing myself. I love being able to walk into an audition and not have to worry about the lines or playing a character.... I can just BE the character.”

-Michael Franklin

“I always believed improv was something I'd never be able to grapple. After studying with Lauren, I became confident, quick thinking, and some might even say funny.  Her improv technique has helped me in countless auditions and has been a great source for some pretty crazy situations and characters.” 

-Chadwick Armstrong

“Lauren's improv has been a master class on making strong character choices that are well-defined and well-executed. Reluctant to play outside of my persona in the past, I've evolved through this improv to understand the value of genuine point of view and how for both comedy and acting it is central to the work.”

- Reza Breakstone

"LPNSImprov really pushes you to justify your choices! You'll make mistakes, but in this super long-form improv style, you're always pushed to get back in the story and make it right!"

- Matthew Helfer

"I had a great time at the show, honestly I was a tad worried for it being a FIRST time, how would it go? But from the time the lights went out and music started and then with the burst of energy from the cast entering the stage, the room was instantly electrified and infected with smiles. This was a group of very well trained and SMART kids, who made me laugh. I was impressed by their individual skill sets and the myriad of characters that came to life that night. It was a great time, great show, I WILL be back!"

Every time it's better than the time before. My mind is always totally blown, I need a cleaning crew in there because my mind is all over the place. I would compare it to an orgy, because everyone is just having a good time and it gets messy sometimes.”

Come for the amazing humor of the performers, stay for the camaraderie of everyone involved, including first time audience members to people there every show.  On a scale of 1 to 50, I rate it 150. The addition of Kyle is perfect! The MaD JaCKRaTS are all top-notch.”

The level of improvisational skills, commitment to character and spontaneity leave you speechless.

This show was like being in improv heaven"  

- Schell Peterson (before she guest starred in the show)

"Makin' a movie" was a surreal experience. Being part of Lauren's class I already know the type of actors I have the privilege to associate with. It goes without saying, the result of the show is a combination of amazing talent of the cast and Lauren's unique ability to tap into her students and cultivate them. Love you Lauren!"

- April Garcia

*What People are saying about the shows:*

Fan reviews after the 5 year anniversary show

Lee Whittaker (director)

 A much needed laugh

With the political and world climate of today, it was absolutely refreshing to go and see this performance! I honestly don't remember the last time I truly laughed out loud. I thank all that was involved in creating and executing this. Lauren and her team are some of the top talent!

Looking forward to more laughs!

Isabelle Gamez

The best improv show!!!

I laughed all the way from the beginning to the end! It was amazing, I couldn’t believe there was no script. These actors are truly professionals and they were able to create hilarious stories out of the suggestions from the public. I will definitely be coming back every month!


 Amazing Show

This show made me want to dedicate my life to learn what they do on that stage. They instantly create a story taking endowments from each other and have the resiliency to “flashback” to a moment of time. Insane! I always laugh. And I’ve been to 13-15 shows! Always great seeing the talented cast just having fun as well. Go see it!

Ryan Levy

Truly inspiring

This is hands down one of the most rewarding, uplifting and inspiring experiences you will get watching creativity birth true whimsical madness! These aren’t just stars of tomorrow, they’re stars of today!

Danielle Lenniger (Talent Manager)

Feel Good Sunday!

I have been to the show over a dozen times in the last five years and I am never disappointed. I tend to be skeptical about 'improv' however this is a crew of sensational comedians/actors and their work is like any other I have ever seen. Their bodacious leader Lauren Nadler has prepared them well. Her meticulous casting of only the best to perform is spot on. Their 'makin a movie' format allows you time to become invoked by characters and story and laugh until you pee your pants! My only warning is to prepare for sore cheeks the next day, so many smiles! This group is fearless and hysterical and it is definitely great way to wind up the weekend with a great laugh.


mad jack rats!!!

Whenever I’m unable to go to one of the shows, I can’t even begin to imagine what I missed because the shows are always new, exciting, fresh, and freaking hilarious. I never know what to expect and I’m never disappointed to find out where the performers will take it! Best improv show I’ve attended in LA, easily!

Heather Aitken

 Love this improv group!!!

I used to do improv/acting and being in the business you go see other friends in their shows and honestly many of them are boring. Lauren's show was in the valley and if you know people in LA we hate to drive. HOWEVER I can say that everytime I decided to take the drive I was so happy I did. This group and show is special. I love the characters they create. Its always different and the chemistry between this team is off the charts funny. Take a chance and make the drive. I promise you will be happy you did. 

PS- every friend I ever brought with me felt the same way. Go see this improv group.
