Team Building and Community Give Back in One Swoop
Help us create work for amazing artists and deliver much needed laughs to kids across America!
Every show includes 45-minutes of interactive games – songs and sketches improvised based on audience suggestions and participation.
Before & after the show, we invite all to join us in a meet & greet with the cast – perhaps, share a toast to health.
During the show, set ZOOM controls to STOP VIDEO and MUTE, but use the CHAT function to provide suggestions (Ask Fors…) for the cast.
We have presents 100s of team building sessions for international and local firms. Improv Comedy gets the team laughing together while teaching better listening, focus, self confidence and public speaking. Building team communications and empathy leads to Psychological Safety, the #1 factor in team success.

PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY = “YES AND…” USING IMPROV to enter the LEARNING ZONE
In 2015, Google released the findings of their 4-year study into what makes a successful team. Project Aristotle found that the most consistent factor behind team success is Psychological Safety – meaning every member of that team feels safety to contribute and has a sense of value to the project.
“YES!” is all about accepting your colleagues and their contributions to the team. We create a safe space and level playing field for all. We accept our colleague 100% as is. EVERYTHING they say and do. We do not judge. We do not fear. We trust each other AND ourselves.
“AND…” is all about contributing valuable work and information to the team. We are going to take this to the next level by accepting our colleagues’ work, building upon with our own contributions. Performance drive is not a selfish process. We have a collective ambition to grow and achieve together as a team.
When the whole team embraces “YES! And…” we enter the learning zone together. No challenge is insurmountable when we work together in a supportive exchange of ideas and actions.
