The Story of THEY improv Canada

Providing Consulting That Knows No Borders

theyTHEY 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.

Over the years, he made contacts with great performers all over the country 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 country. THEY improv has worked in all 50 US states, DC and Puerto Rico as well as in Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas and London, England. 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 Canada.

While initially working for entertainment, Todd Rice has always had a knack for finding unique ways to provide team building while having employees smile along the way. This has led to a wide array of options for entertainment, team building and business consulting.

THEY improv has worked with over half of the Fortune 500, has worked with almost all branches of the US Military as well as for the mob (which doesn't exist and we will never say different) and the FBI!

THEY improv now has Faith-Based Improv, Destination Team Building, Safety Training and many other initiatives indicating a bright future yet to come.

THEY improv can provide these in Ontario (Toronto, Ottawa, Niagara Falls, Windsor and London), Alberta (Calgary and Edmonton), British Columbia (Vancouver, North Van, West Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby and Victoria), Quebec (Quebec City and Montreal) and many other locations. Likewise, our professionals can travel for an additional fee to other parts of the country.
