Ryan Millar


Ryan has been teaching, performing, directing and writing about improv for nearly twenty years. In addition to regular classes and shows in Amsterdam, he travels regularly to festivals around Europe to perform and teach.

More about improv


Ryan writes plays, feature articles, short film scripts, short fiction, comedy sketches and other stuff besides – including the blog on the right. Much of his writing he does for clients like ING, Heineken and Shell, but a great deal of it he does for himself.

More about writing


Ryan helps individuals and businesses improve the ways they think and interact – internally and externally. Applied improv, storytelling and communications training are all right in his wheelhouse.
