I have attended many classes and workshops and NEVER attended one that wasn't right on target. Angel walks that fine line between instructor, entertainer and one of the group. I love how he saw immediately the challenge he faced and orchestrated that professionally. --Phyllis Sheffield (World Clown Association 2006-2007 President).
