What Angie Belcher's clients say
"Angie has a vast amount of experience in using her skills and research in the field of comedy to become a noteworthy coach and a ‘go to’ for many of us in the comedy sector. As an artist she is hugely accomplished and has honed her skills of teaching and coaching across such a broad range of clients, students and other artists that she is able to work astutely and intuitively."
"Angie is a very supportive and creatively minded individual. She is innovative in her thinking and is always devising new initiatives to incentivise students. Everything she does is student centric and she has outstanding subject area knowledge. She is at ease working within a team and thrives on new challenges and taking on a leadership role. I could not recommend Angie highly enough."
"I've worked with Angie on several occasions and found her to be incredibly insightful, wonderfully inventive, and full of creativity for the projects I've asked her to be involved with. She's got a perfect comedy voice, which she uses to hone and develop the voices of others - her comedy courses are full of fun and clever ways of encouraging and supporting her students to achieve this goal. It's a rare gift to be able to translate lessons via comedy, in a unique way, and yet Angie is also brilliant at being part of a team and can be equally adept at leading from the front or supporting from behind. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her as a comedian, educator, supporter, and as a person."
