Comedy Improv

Bearded Men Improv's performance is fast-paced, funny and can be personalized for your group. The show format is patterned after the hit television program "Whose Line is it Anyway?". The show features an emcee, three or four artists, and numerous performance scenarios.
There are more than 200 different improv segments that can be incorporated into the production. Each performance utilizes 10-12 segments to create a show that is uniquely original every time it's performed.

"The Bearded Men Improv group was by far the best entertainment we have had for a company celebration. There wasn't a single person in the audience that wasn't laughing throughout the entire performance. We laughed and smiled so much that our faces were literally sore the next morning. Bravo Gentlemen!"

"The kids absolutely loved the Bearded Men performance.  A few days later
the kids were still quoting from the performance.  We had done a hypnotist
in past years, but the kids said this was far better.  From a chaperones
perspective, the group was extremely funny, related well to the kids, and
were also very age appropriate.  They did a great job engaging the audience
and we would definitely recommend them."
