Loosely based on television's popular Family Feud, the Member Feud has competitors competing to come up with complete lists from popular knowledge. From naming the seven dwarfs to the seven deadly sins, common knowledge is challenged for points and bragging rights in this battle of wits.
We pair contestants to prove that they know more about each other than the other pairs. Audience members serve as the judges with bizarre and fun ways to show incorrect answers. Often entertaining and amusing, this enhances personal relationships in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
We pit two contestants against one another trying to match answers with a panel of six audience members. Other audience members serve as judges with group fun at incorrect answers. This game improves the group mind of a team and helps people to see things through each other's eyes.
Loosely based on television's popular Minute To Win It or Beat the Clock, THEY improv's Timed Tirades pit contestants against each other in big goofy activities. With dozens of options for contests, with everything from human horseshoes to hopping, there's something for any group.
This is a custom-built murder mystery party for your group with a THEY improv professional facilitating the evening and making sure that everyone has a good time. With our emcee watching over your group, the attendees are pitted against one of their own, a murderer, who works to get away with murder! If someone solves the crime, the murderer is found and the super sleuth gets a prize. If the murderer gets away with it, he or she gets the prize instead! Additionally, a prize is given to the best actor/actress in your group. A great game for smaller groups (15-40) that are looking for unique entertainment.
Designed for larger groups, the audience is divided into teams, usually by table. The teams are provided with the upcoming categories of questions. They talk amongst themselves and determine their confidence for each category. Then, as questions are asked, the teams compete against each other to win a trivia quiz without the benefit of technology. This bonds team mates, has friendly competition and can be done throughout a meal leading to a more lengthy shows. While most are 30-45 minutes, this can run for 90 minutes or so. A great game for slightly larger groups (50-150 or more).
For larger groups one of the potential issues is a small percentage of the group participating in the activities. Into this area THEY improv developed the Audience Olympiad. This is designed to divide the audience into teams and for the teams to determine within their group who will participate in each activity with scores being aggregated together for a total result rather than game by game. Everyone on the team wins prizes whether or not they physically participated or not. This means that they're more likely to cheer their team on to victory. This is the only game show that we generally do not provide the prizes as the teams can get quite large. We can bring the prizes for a negotiated charge.
Designed as a team building effort, the audience is divided into several groups. Each group is provided with a period of time to talk to each other. They are expected to learn pertinent details about each other and to get to know each others' personality. One person from each group is brought up in front of the audience. They are each provided with a white board to write answers. The person from each group is asked questions about themselves. Their group then tries to match those answers. It is a great way for people to get to know each other better and learn things about one another. A great game for slightly larger groups (70-150).
We have a variety of formats designed to bring out the unsung talent of your group. Whether singing, dancing, acting, comedy, writing, skills of dexterity or human oddities, there's a format to push the boundaries and to get your coworkers, friends or family to bond as never before. Our facilitators can assist or simply provide the framework for your people to become stars. There are versions for just about any sized group (10-150) or for smaller groups (10-30) to perform in front of major audiences ranging in size into the many 100s.
For larger groups, maintaining the interest of the audience can be key. Similar to the Let's Make a Deal TV show, our Let's Deal, our Emcees wander the audience challenging audience members to trade options to win a variety of prizes. The big winners from the audience are then brought on stage to make deals with one another or to trade for potential larger prizes. This is also a fun way to run a White Elephant event or other gift exchanges. Prices vary wildly based on whether we're providing the prizes and the expense involved with the prizes. Likewise, for larger audiences we might provide camera crews and projection for an additional fee.
Include the size of your space, how many people you think might attend, potential dates you have an interest in, and any special concerns or requests.
Our staff works hard to make certain that all details are ironed out and that you understand the process prior to any agreement
We will explain themes, timing, dining considerations, sound, lighting and stage equipment needed (which are not usually included in our proposal), payment methods and timing, etc. This will allow us to prepare a 3 page proposal for your event. Page 1 is a cover letter. Page 2 is the actual contract. Page 3 is a credit card form just in case you choose to pay by that method, though often checks are the more popular option.
