Have you ever heard those voices in your head saying: “You can’t do this. You aren’t good enough. Why are you even trying, you will never succeed.”? We’ve all heard those voices at some point and as our guest, improv comedian and female entrepreneur Pam Victor says, it’s often the greatest among us who hear those voices most often. Pam created the F.U.C.K. I.T. philosophy to keep those voices at bay. She shares the techniques she teaches her students to get rid of those voices, which she lovingly calls Calvin or your Evil Mind Meany. Pam also talks about how she happened into becoming an improv comedian and then entrepreneur.
Pam Victor is the founder and president of Happier Valley Comedy where she runs THROUGH LAUGHTER, a program using applied improv to activate professional and personal development, in addition to managing a full-curriculum improv comedy school. She also produces regular improv shows in Western Massachusetts. Pam is author of the children’s therapeutic fiction book “Baj and the Word Launcher: A Space-Aged Asperger Adventure in Communication” and, along with legendary improvisers TJ Jagodowski and Dave Pasquesi, co-author of “Improvisation at the Speed of Life: The TJ & Dave Book.” A graduate of Smith College with a Master’s in Education from Iona College, Pam has received improv training from iO Theater (Chicago), Annoyance Theatre (Chicago), ImprovBoston, and from Second City teachers. Pam Victor is a nice person. She likes you already.
