HOW HAS THE COMEDY ARENA WORKED WITH BUSINESSES?

The Comedy Arena has delivered successful training to employees in every known industry, from network execs to nuns, from lawyers to lumberjacks to high-tech engineers. We’ve been hired by Fortune 500 companies, often repeatedly. From valuable and customizable training using Applied Improvisation, to the entertaining and hilarious ComedySportz® at your event, to projects where you need the talent and funny, The Comedy Arena can help make you look like the awesome genius we know you are.

WHAT IS APPLIED IMPROV?

As performers, we use our improvisation skills onstage to get people laughing. Conveniently, offstage, we use them to run a successful business. We specialize in teaching people HOW to use improvisation techniques in their work lives. We teach the essential, yet often overlooked or discarded, communication and listening skills that will consistently improve the quality of your work, home and social relationships. We call this Applied Improvisation.

TEAMBUILDING

Build an invincible team.

All of our workshops contain multiple elements of team building to go way beyond "trust exercises" (or anything woo woo you've been trying to avoid.) Trust doesn't happen just because you catch someone falling backward. It requires a unique and specific foundation of tools and understanding of how to consistently support and maintain that environment.

We give you the building blocks that create trust. You get an unshakable team. Workshops range from two hours to multiple days to a series over several weeks. Let us know what your need - we'll build your team to be invincible.

BUSINESS SKILLS

Get the tools they don't teach in business school.

Improvisation is not "winging it." It's a highly-refined system of observing, connecting and responding. We have decades of experience designing and customizing training to elevate companies in areas such as:

  • Communication Skills Training

  • Change Management

  • Customer Service

  • Team Building

  • Leadership

  • Design Thinking

  • Custom Applications
