Tøyen Impro proudly presents T.J. Mannix from New York's Magnet Theater! T.J. will be teaching two workshops in Oslo, as a part of the TJ&T European tour, March 20. - April 6th.

T.J. Mannix is a veteran improvisor, actor, voice over artist, teacher, and acting coach. He fell hard for improv after studying with Amy Poehler and Armando Diaz, and was on one of the first Harold teams at Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC. T.J. has been a regular performer at the Magnet Theater for 15 years. He is the founder of the 11th annual New York Musical Improv Festival (www.nymif.com).

He's also a very nice guy!

Terje, the founder of Tøyen Impro, met T.J. while they were both teaching at the San Diego Improv Fest and he's happier than a bag of puppies to have him back in Oslo!
