What do birthday parties, family reunions, conventions,  co-worker cliques, corporate morale building, sports teams, youth groups, bachelorette parties, and marching bands have in common?

Someone who makes a duck face while taking a selfie? Maybe.

They love group outings to a BATS Improv show? Definitely.

A BATS performance is a terrific outing for any group of folks who want to have fun, and we’ve happily hosted every kind of group you can think of at one time or another. If you’re looking for a dysfunctional family stress-fest or corporate PowerPoint snoozapalooza, try elsewhere. At BATS, everyone gets to enjoy themselves while doing things they rarely have the opportunity or freedom to do. Whoever said “you can’t please everyone” never booked a group event at BATS.


group2Buy Six Tickets and Save

Purchase a six-pack of tickets for $90 (a savings of $30 over door price). Come to six shows on your own, or bring a friend to three, or treat two-thirds of the Supreme Court to one, or (you get the picture).

group4Groups of 200+

For groups of more than 200 people, Improv @ Work specializes in custom off-site performances. Our custom entertainment is the antidote for bad cover bands, awkward icebreaker games, and other event fails. Inspired by your group’s ideas, our improv professionals will create a personalized show that turns your party into an engaging, unforgettable occasion.

We’ll work with you to develop the perfect program for your group — from short scenes, stories, and songs to a complete improvised murder mystery to TheatresportsTM, our knock-down-drag-out improv rumble!

All of our shows are 100% unscripted and unplanned. Whatever the theme, the show is a journey that brings people together through shared fun, laughter, and creativity.

Please email work@improv.org or call (415) 474-6776 to learn more about the custom entertainment we can provide your group.
