Jeff Quintana is an outstanding improviser and improv teacher. He has taught at Improv U many times and I’ve seen a huge improvement with my students and myself after working with Jeff. He is always professional and courteous with students as well as when he performs. I highly recommend Jeff Quintana as a teacher and performer.

Jeff Quintana is excellent at what he does. He’s an excellent improvisor, teacher and coach. I’ve had the opportunity to perform with him and learn from him and he’s always on point. He’s one of the first people on my list when people ask if I can recommend a good improv coach. When my students take a class with him or are coached by him, they come back stronger. This guy has trained for this. He’s educated, he’s passionate & he’s talented. I strongly recommend you book him if you’re on the fence about it, because if you don’t, someone else will.

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.

Jeff is the kind of teacher that makes improv fun and smart. There are so many things that can get you in your head but Jeff gets all of that out of your way so you can play like a pro.

Jeff is a superb improv teacher and performer. He has been our guest at Florida Studio Theatre a number of times and he has always left my patrons laughing and my students happy. Not only is he well knowledgeable in a number of different areas of comedy but he is an amazingly warm person that makes it a pleasure to work with him. If you can host Jeff, don’t hesitate in doing so.
