Farce is a fun and incredibly funny Comedy Improv Team Building Training event that will have your group laughing at themselves and peculiar situations created by professional actors and comedians. All instructors for these programs come from the world-famous Groundlings Theater in Los Angeles, and when your group hires us to come out to your location or convention, there’s a good chance you’ll catch a rising star or someone who may show up soon on Saturday Night Live. In fact, the theater has become a virtual breeding ground for SNL and other sketch comedy performers.
The training was excellent! It was easy to see that our associates really came out of their shell and got involved in the Comedy Improv. I’d not only like you to come do more training for us, but I’ve already referred you to other companies as well. Over the past few weeks I’ve really noticed that the lessons learned from the training are still being used in the workplace. Mike Cassio, E2M
