About our roadshows

 

 

"CSz Seattle has been wonderful to work with! My middle school students love their performances! They create a safe space for my students to throw out ideas and even be a part of the games on the stage. They roll with the unexpected of typical middle school interactions and always know what to say to keep things light and funny! This is always a favorite event on our annual Seattle trip for me and my students and is reliably what they want to come back for the next year!"

 

     -Allison L. - Athey Creek Middle School, June 2023

 

“CSz Seattle is absolutely hilarious. No matter what we threw at them, they took it and made it into a hilarious bit. I love how engaging they are with the audience and got everyone in the room interacting!”

 

     -Cyanne S, Nisqually Red Wind Casino, June 2022

 

"CSz Seattle was great to work with and provided my fellow colleagues with a light, fun and memorable experience! From pre planning to the actual event, Dave was professional and always available to chat through logistics. They were also able to customize the experience to best fit the audience needs, which was a huge plus! I couldn’t recommend this experience enough and I look forward to working with CSz Seattle more in the future!"

 

     - Erika J, Avalara , January 2022

 

"It was an amazing experience from start to finish. Very streamlined in the booking process, responsive, polite and the show was off the charts! I booked them for a holiday org meeting with over 200 people and everyone raved about how great the show was. Looking forward to working with them in the future."

     - Brandy L, Microsoft, December 2019

 

"We had a company holiday event at a restaurant recently and had two CSz Seattle comedians come out and entertain us. They were FANTASTIC (on time and professional), explaining what they do and including all of us in a safe and hilarious manner. We are a group of engineers--pretty left-brained and they even had a couple of us up in front of the group for some games--totally voluntary of course. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend!"

 

     - Cynthia H, Window Tech, December 2019

 

"I have hired CSz Seattle's Roadshow twice now, and both times have been extremely happy I did so. They are super easy to work with, professional and put on a GREAT show."

 

    - Joanna M, City of Marysville

 

"We had CSz out for our annual Volunteer Christmas Party and our team LOVED IT. Not only were we in stitches while there, but we've foundnd ourselves still LOL'ing over their material. Don't get me started on the value....they could easily charge 5x their rate and would merit every penny. This was by far the best entertainment experience we've outsourced both for the value and also the content."

 

    - Chris E.

 

"ComedySportz was absolutely amazing. 10 minutes before our event the power went out but that did not stop them from putting on a great performance, that’s what they do - improv. With no sound system and no lights, we had candles lit and everyone was having the best time. We would definitely have them back again for another event."

 

    -Maggie P.

 

"Our company was craving an alternative holiday party experience and CSz was exactly what we needed! We catered a light meal in their swanky lounge and had full service from their bar. After we snacked, we were ushered into the cozy stage area for our private, custom improv show. The CSz team was amazing and even incorporated some of our company's inside jokes into the routine. They were super respectful of those of us who preferred to sit back and enjoy quietly, but played up the more boisterous team members to really make the most of our experience. Setting up the show was easy and the whole thing was incredibly affordable. I would highly recommend CSz for events, parties, team building or just a great night out with friends!!"


    - Erin H. 

"Our company had our office holiday party here, and they were fantastic. Setting the party up was a breeze, and the staff were great and incredibly helpful! The show was amazing, and our whole company had a great time. Thanks CSz!"

 

    - Abby G. 

"I went for a work party and was delighted! It is interactive, smart, fun, and family friendly. Volunteer to go up on stage! It is not scary at all!"

 

    - Caitlin W.

"They were very nice to work with and the show was SO FUNNY! Loved it. Highly recommend."

 

    - Andrea W.

"We had CSz out for our annual Volunteer Christmas Party and our team LOVED IT. Not only were we in stitches, but find ourselves still LOL'ing over their material. Don't get me started on the value....they could easily charge 5x their rate and would merit every penny. This was by far the best entertainment experience we've outsourced both for the value and also the content. I would love to add a photo or two from the event but the power went out 10min before our set start time and remained out through the end of their show. CSz improvised though and put on a great show via candle and cellphone lights."

"I worked with ComedySportz to do a corporate event.  The group that attended was approximately 20 software engineers and/or managers, with most of those being international.  The event was a 1 hour show with 2 performers, and a 1 hour workshop. My team had a wonderful time doing this corporate retreat. 

 

The first half was a show, which was an improv show with 2 performers: if you've seen live improv, you'll know what to expect.  Here the performers did a great job of keeping their energy up and focusing on humor that was well suited to a corporate audience.  The second half was a workshop, where the team participated in low stakes, low pressure exercises that allowed them to reflect on behaviors that will make them more successful at work.  During this part, even the most shy members of the team felt comfortable to participate and everyone is encouraged to interact with people they don't normally talk to.

I particularly appreciate I flexible Dave Bogan was with scheduling, planning and other details.  For instance, Dave was able to help me plan an event that worked well within our budget and suggested a plan of activity that he thought would work given my team.  Even small details (allowing us to bring food, letting us go to their space, us running a bit late, etc.) were managed extremely well by Dave and his team, and made the event all that more special.

All in all, working with ComedySportz was a fantastic decision for my team.  The teammates liked this new and different activity, and I think it brought the team a bit closer together.  I would recommend this for anyone seeking a corporate event.
If you like to laugh and you find yourself looking for smithing fun to do in Seattle, check out CSz Seattle. This group of improv actors does their very best to keep you laughing from the moment you walk into the door until the moment you leave."

About our teambuilding

 

“I’m thankful I was able to have my team attend the CSz Seattle improv workshop! They had a blast, and also learned valuable communication skills along with relying on each to further build our team dynamic. Wonderful event!"

 

   -Robert T, Nestle, January 2024

 

“CSz Seattle's Applied Improvisation workshop not only was great for team building, but it also gave highly applicable insights for a team having to think on their feet in a very dynamic marketplace. By far, the most appreciated and fun team building event we ever had!”

 

   -Filip F, Ravensburger North America, Inc., October 2023

 

"We had the wonderful opportunity to have CSz Seattle come and present as a team building experience to our Health Services Team. It was a fun filled night of laughter for a solid hour. Something that our nurses and health care workers needed to replenish their soul. After-all, laughter is good medicine. One of the highlights of the evening was a comedy demonstration using gibberish language and hand motions to communicate. As we work in the field of senior housing, communication is so important to understand the needs of our residents. This fun-filled activity showcased that it can be done with humor, patience, and creativity."

 

   -Raquel B, Leisure Care, March 2022

 

"Everything was fantastic! Dave did an incredible job. Our team had a great time, and I can still see the positive impact as we bring what we learned into the workplace."

 

   -Stacy W, Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle, January 2020

 

"The Improv session was fun and extremely transferable to the sales environment. This should be pitched to more corporate sales offices!"

 

   -Justin D, The Hershey Company, October 2019

 

"Dave facilitated a fantastic team experience!!! I heard feedback from multiple teammates stating that this activity was amongst the best they’d experienced. I found Dave to be professional, and the kind of presenter I aspire to be. I was particularly impressed by how he was able to make each exercise relevant to our job experience."

 

   -Jeff M, The Hershey Company, October 2019  

 

"Dave did his homework and provided our team with the most fun and educational team building event we have had to-date. Dave curated the improv exercises directly to our team's unique structure and needs. The activities focused on team bonding and brought even the shyest team members out of their shells to have a good time. I highly recommend Dave and CSz to any team who wants to spice up their basic team workshops with some fun and educational entertainment".

 

   -Ryan U, Amazon, September 19, 2019

 

“Our cheeks hurt from smiling so much! I am so glad we had CSZ out for our event! They did an awesome job, we had a group of about 40 people and everyone could participate and had a great time :)”

 

   -Nikki Baker, Washington State Patrol Budgeting and Fiscal Services

 

"Perfect experience for our team; it was a fun and different way to work on our communication and presentation skills. Not sitting around a meeting table listening to people talk but going through Dave's ridiculous exercises was a creative and refreshing way to improve our skills as a team. We loved this experience. Thank you CSz!"

 

   -Jane M, Mountain Safety Research

 

“CSz Seattle provided an excellent team-building event for our national conference attendees in our hotel conference area. With little work on my part to coordinate this event with CSz, the CSz crew arrived and provided an extremely fun and energetic set of activities. The activities were inclusive and not overly burdensome to those introverts in our group. These guys were fun and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to any group, large or small. CSz also provided an evening “show” during our conference reception. Based on our request to ensure the material was appropriate for our business/professional group, CSz again provided a fantastic show for us. It truly was amazing what this troupe can do! The feedback from the conference participants overwhelmingly listed the CSz events as “excellent” and the teambuilding was regarded as very valuable as a way for people to get to know each other.

   -Becky Bartlein, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

About our Virtual Morale Events

 

"I like how the hosts were very friendly and encouraging! They made the event feel judgment-free and lighthearted. Using Zoom was also nice since our group was already familiar with the software."

 

- Flux Employee

 

"I liked that everyone had a chance to participate and that it was a low-pressure environment."

 

- Flux Employee

 

"A perfect blend of humor, intelligence and bravery! Love how everyone is warm and welcoming! My experience was awesome getting to know people better and participating with them!"

 

- M&M Employee

 

"I liked that the hosts had to make up things on the spot from our feedback calls in the chat, that was really cool to see."

 

- M&M Employee

 

"I've attended multiple interactive comedy shows since the start of the pandemic. This event was executed as well or better than the others. Keep up the good work!"

 

- Compass Datacenters Employee

 

"It got people to get out of their comfort zone and made us laugh. I didn't know this side of everyone."

 

- KPMG Employee

 

"This is perhaps the best virtual activity I've ever joined by far since we have been working from home due to Covid. As a non-native English speaker, I could join some games that didn't require much of a language skill."

 

- Tripadvisor Employee

 

"I loved this experience. I was in plays in high school so getting to do improv was so fun and I loved how it tied into team building."

 

- Compass Datacenters Employee

 

"Appreciate how Dave made everyone feel comfortable at the start - so much fun!"

 

- Red Hat Legal

 

"This was outstandingly delightful. Alex, Sarah, and Dave were AMAZING! We had about 3 teammates join who only wanted to observe as the idea of performing improv gives them anxiety, but then they ended up participating because they felt really comfortable! It was great that Dave gave us a sense of what to expect and the players demonstrated it before we tried it out! We're in our team channels making memes and jokes about the goofy stuff we did. Seriously, a zillion out of ten. I'm recommending it to all other teams in our company and anyone else. I'd never done anything like this before and it was so so fun! Seriously, thank you so much. - Superhuman Onboarding"

The event was far better than I imagined.

 

- ServiceNow Employee

 

“The MOST FUN I've had all quarantine long. I can't remember the last time that I was able to laugh with a group of people. 10/10 would recommend again.  I didn't realize that I was stressed until after this de-stressing event.”

 

- Amazon Employee, March 8, 2021

 

 

“Was a bit skeptical to how the virtual improv session would work out, but ended up having a really great time and got to meet a lot of new people!”

 

 

- Amazon Employee, March 8, 2021

 

"Our engineering team has been working remotely for the past few weeks so we wanted to find a team building activity that would be fun for everyone, even though we are all in our own homes. Once I reached out about organizing an event, Dave followed up immediately to learn more about our team and what we were looking for. He made it very easy to organize the event. Dave and Alex both facilitated the workshop for the 10 of us, leading us through a number of games and activities. Everyone on our team had a lot of fun - a couple people mentioned that they were apprehensive about improv but ended up loving it. It was a unique experience that helped us get to know each other better while working on team work and communication skills. It was a pleasure to work with CSz Seattle and I'd recommend this to other teams looking for a remote offsite!"
