THEY improv began around 2004 as a group performing for charities and serving our communities. We raised tens of thousands of dollars for a series of great organizations that looked out for the well being of those who were not able to help themselves. This website represents an expansion to serve our Fortune 500 Clients with Arabian Peninsula Team Building services and consulting.

THEY improv began with Todd Rice, our Director. Todd had worked a variety of jobs in the business world including having been employed by the FAA through Martin-Marietta Air Traffic Systems, by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, worked on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, for a hedge fund in Chicago, and was the CEO of a smaller technology company. All the while he trained and performed at The Second City, Improv Olympic and many other prominent theaters.

why comedy

Our Director found that when people laugh, they become more open to new ideas and more likely to take lessons to heart. This made a company engaged in comedy the perfect vehicle to help everything from small organizations to members of the Fortune 500.

Over the years, our Director made contacts with great performers all over the United States and started bringing some of the best performers together to help raise money for charities, calling the shows Comedy With a Cause. These shows started getting larger and companies started taking an interest.

While initially focused in South Florida, the group has expanded and calls upon actors all over the world. Very quickly, THEY improv provided their services for companies in all 50 US states, DC and Puerto Rico as well as in Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas and Europe. Now we bring these services to our American and European clients that also have operations in the Arabian Peninsula. While we are based in the US, we know local performers in many countries and our clients tend to want our services wherever they are. As such, we consult with them for their events in the US while contracting local performers wherever the event might be, including throughout the Arabian Peninsula. Or, we can bring American talent to serve events locally where the local talent hasn't been trained for particular kinds of events helping to grow the local performers abilities. And, of course, there is always the prospect of working virtually.

Many US companies operate throughout the Kingdom and the employees operating far from home want familiar entertainment and need to foster understanding and collaboration with KSA partners.



Not only does the US have interests in the area, there are large numbers of British and other international businesses that can utilize our team building and training programs.



Kuwait City is a major destination for people from around the world. It serves as a great backdrop for regional conferences and an opportunity to bring together employees to bond.



The Sultanate has a free trade agreement with the United States and this has led to a variety of business opportunities requiring closer working relationships with local businesses.



Very visible to Americans due to the airline, relations between the countries run far deeper than that. There are more US companies operating in partnership with locals that are solely US owned.
