  • “Scott’s improv skills won’t just make your spots better. He’ll make your sessions better, your writing better, and your clients happier. And he’ll make your improv skills sharper, too. He’s just that good.”

    Chris Smith
    Writer and Creative Director The Richards Group, Dallas, TX
  • “Scott Parkin is a white-hot, non-stop improv machine. Like a crazy, maniacal, possessed toaster oven that just keeps toasting bread long after you’ve turned it off and pulled the plug and submerged it in bathwater.  He never does the same take twice, which makes every writer, director, and editor he works with think they’re comedic geniuses”

    Kevin Mulroy
    Creative Director, BBDO NY
  • “Scott has a second to none ability to think on his feet. He’s insanely, insanely fast and insanely funny. But he’s also charming and easily disarms anyone he’s talking to or interviewing with brilliant self deprecating wit.”

    Ed Yeager
    Co-executive Producer, Last Man Standing, 20th Century Fox Television.
  • “Scott Parkin is a consummate talent. We hired him for one project, and he blew us away with his chameleon-like abilities, going from one style to the next until we narrowed down what we needed. He took direction like a champ, adding his own spin when even we couldn’t articulate what we wanted.”
