We are already starting to book out for holiday parties. December 2021 is going to sell out early. After a year or more without in person bonding moments, teams are eager to get together for holiday cheer and laughs.
We have two major options: our interactive improv comedy shows deliver much needed laughs and while Improv workshops provide powerful team building, or of course, a combination of the two is always recommended if time/budget permits.
EMAIL us to discuss dates and rates. We also have virtual programming for remote teams. Read below for more options, including catering at our Times Square comedy club. See menu links for upcomimg public shows and classes.
Improv Comedy Workshop
Teams from JP Morgan Chase, HSBC, Ernst & Young, Coach, Louis Vuitton and many others have used our workshops to help launch new teams and uplift on going projects.
Our teaching artists lead a series of games. While learning how to improvise we break the ice and build both individual and team skills – listening, focus, communication, presentation skills etc. (Great for team building, leadership, sales and service training.) Simply playing the games pits these skills in the body, simply laughing breaks down walls while building new connections, but we also include tidbits on why we do and how to apply every day in the office and personal life. Our #1 rule: HAVE FUN but never at another’s expense!
$500 includes one teacher up to two hours. Book two or more teachers, or two or more sessions/month and pay just $400/teacher/120 minutes. Rates do not include rental fees or catering at our theater. (See below)
Interactive Musical Comedy Show
The cast of EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH has entertained 7000+ audiences in Times Square and touring nationwide since 2002, including teams from Morgan Stanley, Home Depot, Edy’s Grande, BAML and dozens of more companies.
Four teaching artists, all professional, experience comic actors, many with TV credits, create a series of skits and songs improvised based on your teams suggestions and participation. Similar to WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY but now NYC flavored. At it’s worst, PG-13 rated, this show is perfect with an edgy flavor, due to its fast pace and high energy, but clean/PC enough for both corporate and even family audiences. No one leaves feeling uncomfortable due to content. The show itself can be a powerful team building activity as we get a few of your group on stage.
Rates: Just $800 for a salon style performance 45-60 minute show anywhere in Manhattan. $1500 for our full main stage show (five performers 75 minutes, full sound etc).
Our most popular package: Show/Workshop combo!
Seriously, American Express, Master Card, Johnson and Johnson, NYC Schools Teachers, (Professional Development), Medicare /Medicaide, BDO, and dozens more have all gone all in to deliver laughs and team work.
Rates: $1200 includes 4-person cast and one teachwr for second hour. Just $300/additional hour of workshop OR add a second teacher for larger groups
We continue to offer online programing via zoom, or we are happy to use you platform of choice should you decide to host. We have presented multiple programs for Accenture, Milbank, Datadog, HSBC and so many more.
Rates are considerably less AND you can bring teams together from around the world.

BRING these programs ANYWHERE
We can deliver these programs ANYWHERE. Turn your conference room, office lobby or favorite private room at your fave restaurant into a comedy club. We have even delivered amazing salon shows in the living rooms of large, and a few not so large houses/apartments. We don’t need much. That being said, we have also filled 1000+ seat theaters at colleges, etc. Very flexible. Bring us to you allows more booking options including times, catering etc.
LET US host you in Times Square NYC.
Full disclosure, we woke out of the Broadway Comedy Club. It’s got a great vibe but it’s not fancy. Also we are often limited on booking times, especially with short notice. The comedy club sells out nightly so there is a high premium to shut down for private events after 7pm.
That being said, the space is amazing inexpensive for say time events and a great off campus field trip for many teams. We have hosted groups from JP Morgan Chase, NYC DOE, Twitter, Coach, Louis Vuitton, Ernst & Young, BAML, Johnson and Johnson and dozens more for shows and / or workshops.
Evening rates vary depending Email us your request.
Daytime rental rates at our location start at $200 space fee ($400 for the larger room) for the first two hours. Or, this is absorbed into various catering packages.
Our top three catering options:
Rates below are on top of artist fees listed above, but include space rental, service and tax.

A former Opera Singer, our Artistic Director, Walt Frasier, takes his Italian food VERY serious.
