Party Primer

Q: Want more fun in your screen time?

A: Invite an Improv Comedy Specialist to your next video-conferencing event.

Hold the awkward and double the awesome.

We break the ice and get everyone laughing so you can move on with your meet-up.

Cocktail hours and office parties, reunions and birthdays, book clubs and girls’ nights. We’ll catapult your online event into the stratosphere of fun.

Our Improv Comedy Specialists (your Party Primers) are improv pros: seasoned teachers and alumni from the world-famous Second City Mainstage. You’ll be playing games and learning improv fundamentals before Aunt Ursula can say “can you hear me?”

When your Primer guest leaves, your event carries on with new energy and a lot more laugh lines.

If you have a group of six or more who want to learn improv in private, weekly classes, contact us to set up a session.

Primer visits can be 30-45 minutes long and host 6 to 50 participants.

Pricing is based on duration and number of participants.

LOL FAQs

What do I need to LOL?

You need a strong Internet connection and a device with working microphone and camera. You want a quiet place without interruptions. You don’t want to be near blenders and chainsaws. Nor do you want to wake sleeping babies with your uncontrollable laughter.

How many people can join on one screen?

Two people can share a device if they have both enrolled and will get equal playing time. No more than two per screen please.

What if I’ve paid but can’t make a class or my Internet is down?

Since each class happens only once, sadly, we can’t make do-overs happen. Lock it in your calendar, check your tech status early and come ready to play!

How does a newbie prepare for improv?

Same way we all do, just show up, bring your best self and be in the moment. Some instructors encourage people being on their feet but otherwise, whatever is comfortable for you is best. Even the pros are a bit nervous before performing – use it as fuel to energize you! We create a safe place for everyone to feel comfortable. Since students mostly playing games in pairs of two or three, there’s plenty of time to watch, listen and learn. After all, we’re here to have fun.

What else do I need to know?
