George Maratos

George studied improv at the world-renowned Second City Improv School in Toronto and Chicago and teaches the same secrets and fundamentals made famous by the likes of Mike Myers, John Candy and Tina Fey. For the past 10 years he has been teaching youth of all ages from across the territory. His fun, easygoing nature has helped students build their confidence and in many cases enabled them to come out of their shell and discover artistic abilities they previously did not know they had. If you are looking to give your students the opportunity to build confidence and artistic ability through working together in a fun, relaxed environment contact George to learn more about his improv courses. In addition to improvisation, George is an actor, writer and stand up comedian.
