The Improvisors

Tailor-made improvised comedy for corporate events.

The first New Zealand International Festival of the Arts in 1990 gave birth to The Improvisors. Seven local actors formed a company to provide an alternative to the corporate entertainment and training on offer at that time.

Using their training and experience in Theatresports, The Improvisors bring tailor-made, improvised comedy to conferences, office functions and product launches throughout the country. Taking the suggestions of the audience, these professional comics create a performance which thrives on the energy generated when neither the audience not the performers can tell what is going to happen.

They also bring an upbeat and exciting approach to training which emphasises team building and problem solving.

And these sought after performers have reached audiences all over New Zealand as well as Australia, Asia and the Pacific.

As well as a busy corporate clientele, comprising of hundreds of satisfied clients, The Improvisors have performed many successful shows for adults, families (and now kids) at Wellington’s Circa Theatre. They also tour their successful musical improvisation shows to festivals around the country.

The Improvisors is an established company that isn’t afraid to listen to its clients and give them what they want. They welcome new challenges and hope that some time in the future it will be your company that is challenging them.
