"John has been an encouraging, positive, and supportive voice to both myself and others as we completed the improv curriculum at ImprovBoston. He has also become a good friend, pro wrestling confidant, and incredibly well organized producer and director for Magic: The Gathering: The Show. His attention to detail on and off stage make collaborating with him simple, easy, and most importantly, fun. Whether you have an opportunity to see him perform on stage, or if you get the chance to see shows like Magic, Oregon Fail, or Clueprov, John's fingerprints ensure a hilarious night for all in attendance." - Dennis B, Boston-based Improviser
"A very insightful session!" - Joan C, Northeastern University
"Serpico’s thorough and academic approach to improv ensures his performers are equipped to tell engaging and fun stories in a fully-realized world." - David T, Boston-based Improviser and Stand-up
