Glowing reviews from Maggie's students below and on the Your SitCom Coach Facebook page:
-- 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. Kristin Cantwell
-- You'll be surprise how quickly you can catch on. I'm new to comedy and the eye-opening tools Maggie provided in this Workshop were extremely helpful. Maggie is so Awesome!! Between the Script Analysis Vocabulary and the Script Analysis Rules, (things I've never heard of) Omg!!! she makes it really easy to grasp and understand. Maggie is Excellent at what she does. Sign up for her workshop - you'll learn a lot. Apples Stewart
-- 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. If you love to make people laugh and dream of being on a sitcom, this class is for you! Sarah Nedwek
-- Maggie Reed is the best acting teacher or coach that I have ever worked with. She truly cares about the young talents that she is nurturing and teaching. She is also a lady of great integrity, professional as well. Maggie has not forgotten what it is like to be a start-up actor, she shares her many experiences and her wisdom. If you want to really perfect your craft, Maggie Reed is the way to go. Billy Ehrlacher
-- Just completed Maggie's 4 week class. So much packed into 4 weeks including the 4-camera experience, sitcom vocabulary, and technical breakdown of sitcom comedy. A must for any actor looking to enter the world of TV sitcoms. Thank you, Maggie! Phyllis Pastore
-- Maggie brings real life experience to her teaching which i believe is the best teacher,she tells you how it is once you get on set and thats where the performance counts. I truly enjoyed her classes and she definitely help me hone my craft to a whole different level! Glenn Robert
-- I used to watch Maggie on TV, she was my teacher, & then my coach...she rocks & oh yeah, she cares. Chrissy Carroll
-- One of the top three coaches I refer NYC actors/actresses. Learn comic cues, marks, and much more from a working actress (which current tense and 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!) Casey J. Smith
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!

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. I’ve never taught before, so I don’t know if you experience enough sincere THANK YOUs…so 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 on that free trial day. Thank you.
Recurring on Orange is the New Black, Hulu's Deadbeat, and NBC's Next Caller. Carrie Diaries, Younger, Public Morals, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Abstract Poverty, The Queens Project, Fourth Man Out, Carefree, and Todd Solondz's Wiener-Dog.

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
