THEY improv now operates throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on behalf of our clients. With a variety of American-styled corporate events, training and team building programs, we can help to bridge the cultural divides, as well as to bring a little bit of home to employees working abroad.

team building


We help your teams to remove the borders that separate them from one another. We help them to bridge the cultural divides and work together towards common goals.

client appreciation


We can engage your clients and get them to bond with your sales staff. They are much more likely to purchase your products after entertainment that makes them feel like stars!

business consulting


We provide a variety of business consulting services to better identify the causes of problems to root out the difficulties and come up with innovative ways to enhance the culture and processes that will enable your company to become stronger.

corporate event


We can provide improv comedy, game shows, magic shows and murder mystery dinners to entertain your company party for milestone events that will help your employees to bond and feel appreciated.

private parties


For families and friends getting together, we have private party entertainment that can help make your special occasions even more special. We consult with you to come up with the best options for your group.

keynote speaker


We can bring a wide range of keynote speakers to liven up your events and to help bring to light subjects that you would like to address. These can be experts, people who have experienced amazing adventures, authors or comedic characters.

A Bonding Workshop is a great way to bring employees together and get them to see each other as individuals rather than job titles. We are also able to use these to teach a variety of other lessons including presentation skills, sales, communication, electronic communication, conflict resolution and mental agility. Ask us today how a bonding workshop can help you accomplish your goals!

Consult with us to better determine how to achieve your corporate goals without anyone knowing that you are doing anything other than providing entertainment. Our Murder Mystery Dinner Shows, Game Shows, Teambuilding Workshops, Scavenger Hunts, or Improv Comedy Shows can all be used for bonding your employees to provide team buliding throughout the Kingdom. We serve Riyadh and Jeddah as well as the larger working areas of Dammam, Khobar, and Dhahran. We can also serve Mecca and Medina, with the goal of bringing people together in the spirit of the holiest of places using local facilitators. Of course, this will not be done within the confines of the holiest of places where there are restrictions. It is our goal to facilitate understanding between peoples and to serve the Kingdom as well as our clients.

food venue

We do not have our own venues. We come to any restaurant, hotel, resort, cruise ship, club, or home. We can work with groups of any size in whatever location you want. The specific location may impact the cost and we will discuss this with you.

We can now consult for our clients throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, though there may be some legal hurdles in some locations that should not prove that difficult to surmount. Hiring THEY improv allows the best that the US has to offer for our American multi-national companies working within the Kingdom and to help companies to understand and respect the cultural differences of their hosts. This allows for familiar programs to be brought to their locations at potentially a fraction of the cost of some other more expensive options. This protects our clients from costly situations that a cultural faux pas may cause.

We lead the way for murder mystery shows to get people to bond as they work together as groups solving a series of problems. By doing so, they develop relationships with coworkers while determining the culprit. We have versions with our actors, and others using your executives as the suspects. This can also be done virtually to allow interrogations to occur overseas and in several locations at the same time. Contact us to determine how we can help you bond with your employees and partners without them even knowing! Likewise, we have mysteries that do not involve a murder.



Never Rush a Conversation

People in the Kingdom take their time getting to business. It is a sign of respect to take your time. The person you are speaking to is worth it. Ask about family, but never about a man's wife. That is thought to be inappropriate. Often a beverage is required from the days of traveling the deserts to allow people to refresh and get comfortable before asking someone to engage in business.

Gestures to Avoid

Certain gestures are problematic. Don't punch your fist into your other hand, or make a clenched fist at all. Don't point or raise a single finger. Don't raise your feet to where people can see the bottom of your footwear. If you are wearing something that might obsucre the footwear, showing the footwear at all is a problem. Basically, do not be an Alpha and always be seen to be considering others.


Eating Habits

Never eat with your left hand. Even more so when not using utensils. The left hand is often used for personal hygiene and so using it with finger foods, especially shared plates, is quite gross and inconsiderate. Be considerate by being aware of those around you. There is a lot of consideration as to who should eat when. Just look for approval around the room to make sure you are not insulting someone on accident.


Never cause someone to lose face. You don't want to embarrass someone. Comfortable jibes among Americans can be taken the wrong way. Remember to be formal in this regard. Don't try to overcompensate by complimenting things in their possession. Some more traditional Saudis can take that as an obligation to offer that item to you, which refusing could be considered an insult. Don't go to the holy places as they are reserved for those in prayer.

Improvisational comedy is a great way to have an ensemble entertain your group. Catching the lightning in a bottle, you experience moments that can never be repeated because everything is made up in the moment. The audience shares the creative process and can be active participants in the fun. We are quite congnizant of the need to maintain the dignity of your employees and executives during the process. Simply put, we make them look like stars!

Game shows invite your group to participate more directly through actually coming up on stage, and being put through TV Show-styled game shows to compete for not-very-expensive prizes (we wouldn't want anyone unhappy that they didn't win). This includes many of television's more popular shows along with more customized shows for your group. Truth Be Told is an offshoot of a popular import. This involves your people defending statements about their past which may or may not be true. Trivia Nights, similar to the popular pub games, gets teams to bond with one another and find out more about their coworkers outside of work. Our Audience Olympiads splits your group into two or three teams and have them compete in simple and fun feats of bravado. This can be Human Horseshoes or Face the Cookie, as examples. And if you don't know what those are, we look forward to a fun conversation!


WE CARE FOR YOU! We care for you and your guests. We will discuss your desires for safety measures regarding Covid-19 and want you to feel secure in the knowledge that we are looking out for you, our client.

If you want to have a high-quality show for your friends and family, we can help you with unique performance options. We can provide a private party that they will remember! Talk to us and we can come up with ideas you may never have been able to think of without our help.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has close ties with the United States. The US is a large supplier of military equipment to the Kingdom, and has bases that have been used over the years which have been used in various operations. The US came to the defense of Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War and continues to work hard to continue positive relations despite many difficulties over the years. Oil is a big part of that relationship but it goes deeper than that. The Kingdom is home to many vital religious locations and that has been both a help and hinderance to relations. American companies have to be careful in walking a fine line between respect and blasphemy.


We Can Literally Speak Your Language



Most of our Arabian Peninsula and Persian Gulf Team Building Events are conducted in English. It tends to be the shared common language, though may need some adjustments for varying cultures and backgrounds. Pop culture, for instance, might not be as shared. We discuss your needs and adjust.

Riyadh is the home to most of the American companies operating in the Kingdom. These tend to be more white collar employees as well as gathering spots for anyone in the region.



This port city is more operational and provides a wonderful backdrop for getting together at a location symbolic of the transfer from the Kingdom to the rest of the world.
