We're experts at digging up the joys and frustrations, foibles and follies, buzzwords and common denominators the audience shares. At show time, we integrate this extensive research with our wit, characters and "improv" experience. Our comedy experts spontaneously create customized-comic scenes about your world. The result is a fun and funny show designed especially for your audience.
Improvisational comedy shows are fresh, original scenes based on audience input. The audience fills in the details of our distinctive comedy by volunteering a variety of suggestions (emotions, objects, activities, occupations, locations) throughout the performance. Improv is immediate and exciting. The audience is in on the fun seeing their ideas mushroom into comedy mayhem. Whatever Business You're In, We Think It's Funny... Your Audience Will, Too! Sales forces and customers, technology developers and end-users, teachers and students, management and administrative support, health care professionals and patients, food scientists and consumers, buyers and suppliers, lawyers and outlaws, funeral directors and...well, let's just say we leave 'em dead in the aisle.
