What can I expect from a JesterZ Improv show?
We are firmly, 100%, absolutely clean comedy. JesterZ shows are always corporate/family sensitive. All ages are welcome and there is no swearing, vulgarity, off-colored topics or foul content.
We bring 4 comedic performers for each show. 1 host (director) that runs the show so you can sit back and enjoy. 3 improv comics who are professionally skilled to inspire belly laughs from start to finish. This is a tight knit group that have done hundreds of shows together.
We want you to have the funniest night of your life, not for you to have to call a meeting with HR. We will interact with your audience, basing everything we do around their suggestions. The whole evening, if you wish, can be based entirely around your company, the culture of your day-to-day workplace, your industry, your CEO, your guest of honor, or whatever else you think of. Since we are expert improvisers, your wish is our command!
It has been our experience that 60 minutes is just the right amount of time for offsite events like this.
What will be the basic format of the show?
From the moment you introduce our director (host) you can sit back and relax!
Our comedy shows are completely made up on the spot and request audience suggestions, questions and even some participation (not required) to inspire each and every skit. Don't worry, the host will guide the audience through each and every set up.
Each 60 min show has 8-12 showpieces. A few of our showpieces include:
-A Day in the Life of “Upper Management”
-Industry Advice Panel
-Backwards Job Interview
-The International Office
-Work Sound Effects
and many more!
Is it really clean? AND will it be funny?
Yes! We’ve been entertaining thousands of audiences and corporations for over eighteen years, so we are expertly trained to connect with any audience and give them a hilariously customized show.
Comedy is a gamble. Improv raises the stakes because you never know what will come out 'in the moment'. No need to worry. JesterZ improv prides itself on being the funniest of the clean.
Hard hitting professional comedians who have been trained on and off stage to keep the humor appropriate for all ages. They've been trained to perform at schools, churches and corporate clients with high levels of humor, comedy and performance skills.
Our JesterZ are skilled comedians as well as actors, writers, directors, musicians- you name it! We bring a variety of talents to each and every show.
Most of our comics at our corporate level have more than 5 years experience with hundreds of shows on their resume. Some of our veteran performers have been with us since 2001 and have done THOUSANDS of shows... In fact, Jef Rawls (who usually hosts the event, has 23 years experience and over 5,000 shows.
What do we need for room/performance set up?
We need to be seen and heard so that everyone can enjoy the show, regardless of where they are seated. We highly recommend a stage. It doesn’t have to be too large, just something large enough to get us off the ground. Let us know if you have any questions concerning the specific dimensions of your stage, or if you need help acquiring one.
If the room is too large for loud vocals, we need wireless, hands-free microphones so we can be heard.
The stage area needs to be illuminated – but is negotiable depending on the room and current lighting.
We can send a representative out to the location in advance if pictures or video doesn't give us answers.
