Help us get our amazing artists back to work. We have been doing shows and classes online since March 14, 2020 and have perfected the performance and educational side of Improv comedy on Zoom. We want to roll out this program worldwide to all your teams. EMAIL us now to set up a phone/zoom meeting to discuss dates and rates
In the past 15 years we have charged $800-40K to run events for companies large and small at our Times Square Club and touring nationwide.
$40K was a massive 2007 holiday party for Morgan Stanley at the NY Laugh factory. Leading the 200+ guests was former CEO, John Mack. The dessert buffet could feed a small army. Santa and Mr. Mack loved the ice sculpture with Shrimp Cocktail. Of course that was pre-2008 crash.
$6000 was a corporate luncheon, show and professional development workshop for 60 teachers NYC DOE at our Times Square Club. We included snacks and Continental Breakfast welcoming buffet.
We charged $5000 tot do 20 minutes of games in Orlando to spice up an awards presentation with some laughs.
We only charged $800 to drop by any office or other small venue for a show. $500 for a workshop with of our teachers.
Book any show this fall online for just $200. 45 minutes, four professional performers. Hosted by Walt Frasier (Letterman, Billions, Blue Bloods etc). We will open up the room up to 90-minutes 15 before, 30 after) so you can have extra time before and after to meet & greet.
We try to recapture that live club experience the best we can. Some have remarked this online show has been better than the times we visited them at the office or some private room at The Palm. The atmosphere is not distracted by the food service I suppose.
Book a workshop for just $75/teacher/hour. We embrace the concept of Psychological Safety. We create a safe space to open up and play. Then, simply playing games, individuals and team grow together. Creative Skills, Listening, Focus, Public Speaking and self confidence.
But most importantly, it’s the group laughter, in both shows and workshops, created without disparaging any individual, that breaks down walls, replacing with bonds of trust.
How can we charge so little?
On one hand, what choice do we have? We are a conglomerate of indy artists looking to stay employed and housed during a city wide shut down of the arts. The only work we have now is edutainment for corporate groups, schools and our public programming for kids, teens and adults.
However, now, for us to do a 45- minute show, we are not giving up the entire day. There is now travel time. There is now overhead. No sound system. etc etc etc. And we are only advertising via websites and social media and direct follow ups with our regular clients. So, 100% of the fee goes to the artist. No broker, etc.
We miss performing in Times Square at the clubs, but the bright side of distance learning and performing is the worldwide reach. We have have worked with teams from around the country and Canada. We have even had a few from Europe drop by our public shows and classes.
