Fiona Choi, The Family Law

We're now shooting Season 2 of The Family Law. Inspired by your teachings, I've been employing your SitCom techniques like Patterns of 3, Plosive Sounds, Moment Before, & Operative Words. Thank you so much for your fun class and encouragement.

Claire Warden, Quantico

Well I went in there and I rocked it! I feel really good about the audition. It felt great and for the first time I realized 'that's how you do it!' Thank you so much for your help. It's made me realize that in the past I've not really been sure what work I should do for an audition so just faffed around learning the lines without getting really detailed. Now I know the specifics of the work I can do and it makes me feel so much more in control. Even if I'm not right for this part for whatever reason I'm satisfied that I did a good audition for and made a good impression on them.

So once again you rock! Thanks

Brilliant coach who cracks your underbelly and gets your best performance... Rocked the comedy and multi cam... Also amazing for the drama stuff... Must book for network audition prep.

Thank you soooo much, Maggie! You give brilliant notes and really know how to get the most out of the comedy in the scene! Had so much fun! My manager also sent back the note ‘Really great work!’ So fingers and toes crossed...

Sheilah Smiley, Comedy Central

To any actor, dramatic or comedic and to comedians if you wanna be more truthful, authentic, funny and technically on target on a real film or television set than do yourself a favor and study with the phenomenal Maggie Reed, the onset coach with the best approach. Don’t believe me? Well, when you see me in my own sitcom, you will. But, you don’t have to wait for that!

Sarah Nedwek, The P.I.T.

I cannot say enough great things about Maggie and her sitcom class. First, she is an expert in this field. She's worked for years on a variety of shows and knows the biz inside and out. Second, she not only gives you tools for script prep but also a vocabulary to work on set once you land the job. She's so fun and passionate about her work. Halfway through the class, I booked a comedy and applied so many of her lessons to my role.

Our industry is all about people. Maggie Reed is, without question, all about supporting our industry and the people in it. I highly recommend 'Coach Maggie'. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Spectre, Capsule, Mad to Be Normal.

Trey Gerrald, Orange is The New Black

I wanted to say thank you for your class. It was your “at least 1 audition a week” assignment that pushed me to audition for Steven Tylor O’Connor, which led me to the NBC pilot, which got me a manager and now this role on OITNB. I’m very thankful for your class and guidance. Here is a very deep, heartfelt, Thank You, Maggie. You mean the world to me. None of this was a possibility when I first walked in your class. Thank you.

Kristin Cantwell, The Path

I'd been wanting to take Maggie's class for a couple years and finally made it happen. I have a pretty strong comedy background but had never worked with multiple cameras/blocking for multiple cameras. Maggie knows everything about playing for the camera and I feel I left class with a lot of great information to work better on camera and especially on-camera comedy. It was great to learn from a working actor who has been on sitcoms and knows her stuff.

Casey J. Smith, The Onion News

One of the top three coaches I refer NYC actors/actresses. Learn comic cues, marks, and much more from a working actress (which is CURRENT tense, not past tense...very rare in this field of work.) Lean how to work and keep working as I owe a few credits from her coaching myself (she's that good!)

Shawlini Manjunath-Holbrook, Louie

I just coached with Maggie for a pilot audition and totally killed it largely due to her guidance! Maggie can break down a script and scene like no other and coaching with her is fast and effective. I felt like she helped me make choices and come up with ideas that really worked for the scene, but more importantly for me personally as an actor. Next time you have an audition, definitely make sure to coach with Maggie!

Thank you a Million no, a Billion!!! It’s all just sinking in… all the Zip-Zap emotions of Nick … I was having fun reviewing and saying my lines on the subway. The passengers were looking at me trying to figure out what I was saying…lol. I will have fun with this tomorrow at my audition for The Jim Gaffigan Show.

Christine Verleny, Downward Dog

-- Maggie Reed's Sitcom class is a master class in comedy, but it is just the tip of the iceberg. Maggie breaks everything down and makes it learn-able and FUN! She is passionate about sharing all the knowledge she has acquired from being a BOOKING actor. Most importantly for me, she is a working actor, like her students. She is a partner in learning. The best kind of teacher there is. I cannot recommend her more highly. 5 stars (out of 5). Christine Verleny
