Why do improv?

Life doesn’t come with a script. Sometimes, you have to improvise.

Improvisational comedy or “improv” is fast, fun and unpredictable. People end up exploring ideas they were not even thinking of just moments earlier. The results are spontaneous and and often hilarious. Yet there is a serious side to improv.

Improv teaches skills such as quick thinking, cooperation, active listening, creativity and leadership. When these skills are applied in business, great things can happen; it's no longer “business as usual.” Improv is taught at leading business schools and companies around the world.

Comic legend Bill Murray has described improv as the most important group work since they built the pyramids. Solutions come when people support each other and work together. The principles of improv are relevant for personal and professional development and can help people become better leaders, managers, colleagues and speakers.

Improv principles can be applied to the working world for personal development, team building, creativity and more. While you and your team have fun, you will also learn how to be  help you and your team to be more open, constructive, confident and creative.

We brought the Renegade Saints to help us film an important communications video and they took it to another level with their professionalism and creativity. They not only delivered convincing and nuanced performances, they also helped us improve the script on the fly with constructive suggestions. My team was delighted with the results. I would recommend them wholeheartedly.
