for your next company virtual event
Virtual events have skyrocketed this year and we know you're on the lookout for the very best in online entertainment for your family or company's events.
Our shows are highly interactive, and are perfect for team building sessions, company energizers. We work with you to set up either short Improv breaks to following lunch and/or meeting breaks, or a longer format show to kick off or wrap up your virtual or Happy Hour event.
We're a fast-paced, unscripted improvised show filled with hilarious emceed games and skits, playful audience participation, and more. We can reinforce your message or simply do what improv does, and go with the audience flow.
Or not. Every show is a new adventure in creativity and humor that can be centered on your company, your industry, the event theme. Or not. Improv makes decisions easy!
Improvised shows mean we never repeat a show. Your event is special to us and we'll work with you to make it special to your event.
Interactive comedic improvisational "improv" shows are a great idea for just about any event. Comedy improv shows typically involves short sketches in which a scene begins with a suggestion from the audience. The best part
about improv is that no one, not us, and not
your participants, ever know what
is going to happen next!
For the ultimate in interactive, virtual corporate event entertainment, Pants Optional Comedy is the ideal choice.
It's also the basis of the popular TV show "Who's Line Is It Anyway." Pants Optional creates comedy sketches and games, made up totally on the spot, from your suggestions. You supply the who, what and where and we supply the acting to make an entertaining show that is unique and tailored to you.
