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.

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!
