“Paul is one of our most in-demand coaches here at Talent INC Canada. He puts so much of himself into each and every class and more than capable to teach so much more than just Improvisation” asserts Doug Sloan, Co-Founder of Talent INC Canada.

We asked Mr. Barnes what he liked about teaching at Talent INC Canada and he boasted, “Working as an Improv instructor at Talent INC is a two-way teaching experience. Doug, John, and Kate have created a wonderful place for us all to learn. I see groups of such inspiring and creatively unique performers each and every time I am there. After I offer my guidance, experience, and encouragement, my real job is to get out of the way so that their own beautiful, hilarious voices can shout so loud that they surprise even themselves. Such is the nature of Improv. I am deeply proud of the quality of work that all of my Talent INC students have accomplished”.

Paul has had great success with his classes covering Audition Technique, Improvisation, Commercial Technique, Scene Study and Monologue work. All of Talent INC Canada’s classes culminate into a final performance at a local venue.

“We are really trying to give actors the opportunity to add to both their training and performance credits on their professional resumes”, says John Stevens the other Co-Founder of Talent INC Canada.

Teen actor Spencer Douglas, who is represented by Colin McMurray & Associates has been a booking machine and raves about Paul’s classes.

“Improv is one of the most important tools an actor can have, and when it comes to Paul Barnes, he makes reaching that level of expertise exceptionally easy. I’m extremely happy that I’ve taken his classes and I’m going to continue training with him for as long as I can”, exclaims Spencer.
