Joe Stage 1

Improvisation isn’t about being funny on stage, it’s about learning to collaborate and build off other people’s ideas. By fostering collaboration through the combined strength of a group, we become more productive! Improvisation is a combination of sharp communication skills, mental agility, creative problem solving and playful teamwork. These are the same skills valued in the workplace, except they are used in the conference room instead of in front of a sold-out crowd.

Oh, you say your group is shy? Perfect! Your group is rowdy? Even better! 

From business-friendly topics like team development and public speaking, the most successful business professionals are the greatest communicators! Through The Outcasters’ Improv Training Programs, we’ll uncover and unleash the very best in your team through the power of Improvisation! We’ll assist in empowering strong, positive, and creative communication for members at every level of your business team.

They’ll discover improv techniques, skills and theories in a customized workshop setting, tailored for your group’s size, needs and structure. You’ll have stronger teamwork, more effective collaboration, innovative brainstorming and problem solving.

The executive staff at Banner Health Care enjoyed THE IMPROV EDGE Improv Training with Joe Hammer

Joe and his team provided a very fun and impactful experience for our executive team. I immediately saw everyone highly engaged in the art of improv and the perspective it brings to us as leaders. What a fun and valuable lesson to listen carefully before responding while having a ton of fun along the way. I would highly recommend this experience for a team!

The folks at Fingerpaint Ad Agency got creative at THE IMPROV EDGE Improv Training with Joe Hammer

The team and I had a fantastic time with The Outcasters. The team was very trepidatious about doing improv and the Outcasters created a safe space to the team to let their guards down and get into the exercises. They also chose exercises that we can use in our day-to-day work. In fact, several team members incorporated the game, "story in :30, :15 :07" in writing some social posts for Twitter. All in all, those who hadn’t done improv before said that it was not what they were expecting and they had a great time!

As a perceptive chameleon, Banter recognizes the importance of being adaptable. Banter came to be the Outcasters’ mascot after trying to find a place to cool off from the blazing Arizona sun. He stumbled inside a drop-in improv class and, after seeing what The Outcasters were all about, he quickly realized he was home! Whether you’re an experienced improviser, just beginning your improv journey, or attending one of our shows, Banter invites you to join us!
