Whether you are looking for corporate team building, a performer for your event or fundraiser or just an entertainer at your private party, BYOI has the show for you! (We do Christmas, holiday and birthday parties too!) We require only four folding chairs, water, a place to perform and an attentive audience. Our rates are negotiable and our performers are professional. We have performed to as many as 700 at a time. We can design our show for any audience and any age. Although our late night shows can be rated PG-13 sometimes, our family friendly shows are squeaky clean! We have worked with audiences of all kinds and we are perfect for your event. Please contact us or call the producer (Daniel) at 401.261.7678 for booking now!

"Any company, any association, any volunteer group that is looking for a way to engage their employees/membership MUST add this to their next off-site meeting. It is pure memories in the making."
- Adam Compton, Senior Manager, Schneider Electric
 
"It is great to know that people can be humorous and at the same time make things school appropriate. As always, I know that our students had a blast participating and laughing along with you."

FAQ's
What do we need to perform?
A separate room to warm up, an open space to perform, four folding chairs and an audience.
 
What age range can we perform for?
Age 5 to 105. You set the rating from PG, PG-13 or R.
 
What is a FAM?
A FAM is a Featured Audience Member is someone from the audience who we will ask simple questions of to inspire the show. We then take a picture of that person and add that to our blog. It can be chosen ahead of time if they are the focus of the event, like a birthday party, retirement party, wedding, graduation party, etc. Or it can just be someone important or well known, such as the head of a company, star student, office ham, etc. We will not make fun of the person. We simply ask them questions which inspire our scenes.
 
How big of an audience do we need?
We have performed for as few as 10 and as many as over 700. As long as you can be heard clearly from the performance area without a microphone, we can handle the audience. We do not perform while something else is going on in the room. We find it is difficult to be heard in that situation.
 
How much do we cost?
We charge between $250 to $1500 for an event based on the size, length and travel expenses involved in the show. (More if major travel is involved or overnight stay is involved.) However prices can be negotiated for non-profits, schools and small family events.
 
Why should our company hire BYOI for an event or workshop?
Improv is becoming the new hot thing to bring to companies to help build trust, utilize listening skills, increase creativity and teamwork and help the community build a better culture. BYOI's format is perfect for this because of it's hands on interactive approach to improv.
