"Start with a 'Yes,' and see where that takes you."
In our programs, we balance experiential learning and informational learning -- active and passive learning. Our goal is to make sure that you meet your educational and growth goals and leave with useful skills that you can immediately utilize in your life and work.
Sometimes we do that with something called Applied Comedy.
Applied Comedy: The use of the skills learned from improv and stand-up comedy in life, work, and relationships.
Applied Comedy Programming is perfect for executives, managers, teams, and organizations who want to stretch their comfort zones, improve their "soft" skills, and empower themselves in new, engaging ways.
Applied Comedy can be folded-in to programs as a part of the learning experience or can be the entire focus of the program, can be done in-person or virtually, and can be utilized in short programs and longer retreat-style programs.
The consistent thread, though, is to expect an interactive program where everyone will be asked to collaborate, support each other, share, and learn while smiling or laughing!

"How can you get on stage?"
"Aren't you scared?"
"How did you get into comedy?"
I get all kinds of questions when people find out that I have been a comedian, and they often center around fear or a wonder regarding how or why someone would choose to get onstage or be vulnerable in that way.
In 15+ years as a stand-up and improv comedian, I've learned a lot about communication, fear, collaboration, positivity, resilience, motivation, confidence, and, yes, humor. And conveniently for my clients, I also know a whole lot about training, teaching, motivation, and program development and delivery.
