Custom Performance & Holiday Events

By definition, improvisation is custom entertainment. It cannot be reproduced, no matter how often our audiences may suspect something we perform is scripted. BATS Improv provides entertainment that is customized for YOU, and allows YOUR TEAM to share the spotlight! Our cast can incorporate your employees, family members, friends, colleagues — any willing volunteers, that is — into the show to make it a memorable experience for everyone.

BATS Improv provides customized, hilarious, interactive entertainment for holiday parties, too. Contact us for more information or to book a BATS ensemble and secure the date of your choice, any day of the week.
