We’re the professional services arm of the world-renowned Second City comedy theater. We use the methods pioneered on our stages to create events, content, and professional development programs that drive personal growth and organizational improvement.
We use interactivity, custom formats, and top-tier comedic talent to make your events more fun and educational. The events we create are all about your people and your culture. That relatability gets people laughing and keeps their attention—so your messages are more inspiring and actionable.
We create content that uses humor and authenticity to connect with employees. We develop custom internal campaigns, or provide licensable video content, that works seamlessly with your current programming. Either way, we’re going to make people laugh, because if they’re laughing, they’re remembering.
Our professional development programs use improv-based methods to drive improvements in performance. Through fun, interactive exercises we get people excited about practicing business-critical skills. That firsthand experience completes the learning loop and helps actualize change.
We help some of the world’s highest achieving companies collaborate better, invent faster, and lead with authenticity.
