I loved Nick Anderson right when I first met him at the party before he even introduced himself to me. Then yesterday he absolutely blew me away with his honesty, generosity, and vast knowledge base! ~ Will Eppes

Just want to let you guys know I started in Nick [Anderson]'s drama class on Sunday and it is such a blessing. I have not learned these things at all and I  have been in a lot of acting classes and spent a lot of money. Knowing this a while back could have booked me some gigs I did not get. Oh well here's to the future.  ... I can't wait to do his comedy class too!  Courtni Siazon

...I just found out I booked the new P.T. Anderson film...I will be playing opposite Daniel Day Lewis!!!! I wanted to... express my PROFOUND APPRECIATION once again to you.  You give so much to whoever is willing to absorb it.  You have a tremendous gift, I am blessed to have been about to sit at the NICK ANDERSON TABLE and FEAST!!!!   Mary Elizabeth Barrett

Nick Anderson is an amazing man and teacher. This class is just beyond...every comic actor should have Nick's techniques in their treasure chest of usable tools. Bravo.  Kathy McGraw

"Just wanted to let you know I was at the theatrical showcase on Tuesday night and you have got a good one with Nick.  He was really good at having an open discussion about what I should do in front of the agents (my monologue is pretty theatrical) and I was very impressed with how he could relate to what I was wanting to do on a lot of's rare to find that.  He was helpful and was a great guide but also listened to my 'side' of things without being critical.  It was a very humbling experience and I left very impressed with him as a guide for us, as a casting director, and as a person."  "Okay, so first night down and Nick is so real, helpful, truthful, and AMAZING - i wish they sold him in stores. And thank you again for getting me in there. Listening to some of the advice/notes Nick gave was priceless." Kyra Groves
