What if your employees were empowered to make customer service an opportunity instead of a cost?

The top of your game is not your rulebook, nor your script, nor what you did with the last customer. It’s improvisation – a highly refined system of observing, connecting and responding.

We apply improv to these areas:

  • Listening with focus
  • Accepting circumstances
  • Empathy with Customers
  • Supporting the Team – making others look good
  • Letting Go of preconceived roles and roadblocks
  • Sharing mistakes – and shaking them off
  • Saying YES, AND…
  • Finding where we’re needed without direction
  • Awareness of the Big Picture

And while we help your people become more effective, we’re bonding them together, engaging them and helping you retain them.

Workshops range from two hours to multiple days to a series over several weeks.  Let us know what you need.  We’d love to help you get your service to the next level.


The Building Blocks of Everything We Do

When people see a ComedySportz® show for the first time, they’re often struck by how the players seem to read each others’ minds, and how completely they support each other. No one seems worried when things go wrong – often, the audience can’t even tell that something isn’t perfect.

It’s not an accident.  It’s by design, and we apply those same skills to your company – we call it “Applied Improvisation”.  Give us a few hours of your people’s time, and we’ll help you build a stronger team.

We focus on these areas:

  • Laughing together
  • Thinking fast
  • Listening with focus
  • Letting Go of preconceived roles and roadblocks
  • Sharing mistakes – and shaking them off
  • Saying YES, AND…
  • Honoring and Building on our teammates’ contributions and ideas
  • Finding where we’re needed without direction
  • Committing to the goal
  • Making Others Look Good
  • Celebrating our team accomplishments

Sounds like a pretty good team, doesn’t it?

All of our workshops contain multiple elements of team building – and they go way beyond “trust exercises”.  Trust doesn’t happen just because you catch someone falling backward. We give you the building blocks that create trust.

Team Building is the core of what we do.

Workshops range from two hours to multiple days to a series over several weeks.  Let us know what you need.  We’d love to help you build your team.


Management is never easy, but it can become easier to lead.

Great management takes ongoing work to overcome innumerable challenges. Hone the craft of caring for your team through listening, inclusion, support, empowerment and understanding the needs of those who follow.

  • Play Multiple Roles – be more flexible without breaking
  • Command authority without demanding it – lead by following
  • Identify both productive and non-productive games and patterns
  • Build morale by being present and in the moment
  • Be a better listener for your team
  • Take risks without panic: the minute you take a step, conditions WILL change

We can help your managers become leaders.  These workshops are great for:

  • Groups of Managers
  • New Manager with an established team
  • Established Manager with a new team

Inspire your leaders.  Inspire your teams.  We can help.


Get rid of the roadblocks at the start of your projects.

Improv culture – the spirit of collaboration through Yes, And… – is a great fit for Design Thinking.

  • Fail early
  • Fail often
  • Remove editors, critics and judges from the early stages
  • Leap past roadblocks
  • Build on each other’s ideas

We’ve built an exciting Design Thinking module that fits right into a full day or half day session of Applied Improvisation.


Improvisation teaches us a lot about life.

It’s a highly refined system of observing, connecting and responding. The results are pretty positive: we make something out of nothing, and make something better out of the opportunities we are given. Let us share this system with your group, department, team, meeting, association or convention.

We can relate it to what they need. Guaranteed.

When would you want a Keynote?

  • When you want a kick-off with a huge burst of energy
  • When you want people to laugh and take away some useful and practical theories and applications
  • When a ComedySportz® Show isn’t the right fit, and you have too many people, too little time and/or not enough space for a fully participatory workshop

We can tailor the presentation to your group and to your situation, from a few folks in a conference room to thousands.  From 15 minutes to an hour, this interactive keynote will leave people laughing with each other.  The exercises we weave in for demonstration and participation will be have a meaningful impact on the rest of your conference or meeting.
