Charles Goforth, the preeminent acting teacher, director and head of the incredible CompassNeedle.org joins T.J. in studio with Keith Price, Afrim Gjonbalaj and is very tolerant and understanding of T.J.'s stupidity.

Here's a little bit of his bio:

 

Charles graduated from New York’s High School for Performing Arts, where he was trained by the students of Group Theater members Sanford Meisner, Harold Clurman, Lee Strasberg, and Stella Adler. It was here Charles began his connection to the finest traditions of American acting training. These early opportunities with Strasberg’s method, Meisner’stechniqueand Clurman’s brilliance created a real foundation for future decades of learning and practice. 

After joining Equity and SAG-AFTRA, Charles earned a B.A. in English from Williams College, one of the country’s top liberal arts colleges, and after assisting the Artistic Director at San Diego Repertory Theater, he went on to earn an M.F.A in Directing at Rutgers University, where his directing training was guided by Amy Saltz and Hal Scott, and his acting training in the Meisner technique was received from William Esper and Maggie Flanigan.
