A Rock Paper Scissors custom-tailored comedy improv show is just that… custom tailored to suit your audience. We interview you about your organization, milestones, corporate mission statement, the people involved, industry buzzwords, sensitive issues, and future goals. We incorporate this inside information into our on-the-spot improv scenes.
The show can incorporate all aspects of your group, or we can zero in on one individual honouring a personal milestone. Either way, everyone gets involved as the audience supplies the suggestions that create the comedy. Some lucky people even end up on stage!
We may re-create the day in the life of a special employee, have a volunteer provide us with all the sound effects in a scene, or even have two lucky individuals physically move us in a scene! Whenever we use audience volunteers, we make them looks like the stars of the show (even though we’re doing all the hard work!)
A Rock Paper Scissors custom-tailored comedy show is a great break in the middle of a conference, a memorable way to re-enforce new product information or just a hilarious way to celebrate that special occasion!
