Email now for dates, rates and more info. Now booking outdoor events for Summer 2021 DC to BOSTON to PITTSBURGH.
We are excited to get back to live events in the near future, however virtual programming has been very productive and we will continue to offer these programs which allow remote teams from around the world to connect, share some laughs, and develop key skills to improve communication and other team skills.
Since March 2020 we have offered 200+ shows and 1000+ classroom hours. We even published a book, IMPROV on ZOOM, as guide for teachers, students and clients (read free via KindleUnlimited or $7.99 paperback CLICK HERE).
We have recreated the high energy and fast paced feel of our live shows from Times Square NYC, where we have hosted groups since 2002.
And in some ways the remote improv workshop is even more effective in teaching certain focus and listening skills. We have less distraction. Traditional stage fears play less of a role. Folks are so eager to interact, they forget traditional insecurities.
We know, even with something’s coming back on line many teams will continue to work remotely.
We also know teams need fun, safe extracurricular activities now more than ever.
We recommend shorter events run more often. Rather than a three day seminar, let’s set up a monthly workshop for your team where we meet for just an hour.
Every game we play can be played in your meetings. We will teach you the basics. Continuing the laughter and bonding regularly for 2-5 minutes will be more effective than any massive annual project.

2013 BLOOMBERG EVENT at Mr. K’s
We did a fun event for 30 hedge-fund managers form Bloomberg. At Mr. K’s on Lexington Ave, NYC, four of us posed as waiters. No one seem to notice the four Caucasian staff members mixing in with the Chinese Staff (Amazing Chinese Restaurant – BEST Peking Duck EVER). Slowly we got more and more intrusive. After the main meal had been served we switched gears into our traditional stage show. But not before Walt Frasier – playing the embarrassing brother to Paul DeGrocco’s Team leader role – sat down at the main table with a very large dish of sorbet as the rest of the guests enjoyed a palette cleanser.
