What do we do
The Improv Company is a company of improv practitioners. We use Applied Improvisation to make enhance adaptability, communication and creativity. We have decades of professional experience in improvisation and use those skills in many different situations. We've taught workshops to everyone from professional performers to professional accountants, from CEOs to kindergarteners. We can work with the absolute beginner and the seasoned veteran. And we want to work with you!
We have been improvisers for decades and have performed and led workshops all around the world. This included headlining festivals, leading hundreds and hundreds of workshops as well as hosting live events and producing events.
We love what we do.
We started working with TEDx and other non-theatre events and soon realized that we needed to expand our scope. We saw the improv skillset being universal and we applied them to public speaking, communication and creative thinking. This is what Applied Improvisation is. We still love using improv for the stage, we just now know that those skills can benefit everyone.
We think that you'll like what we bring.

“Caity and Stephen are the X-Factor, the unexplainable piece of the puzzle, in everything they work on. Their openness, quick wit, humanity, and willingness to accept the absurd not only has the two of them giggling but it has their audiences remembering them and their work months after an appearance.”
-Nicole Jensen TEDxWinnipeg Lead
"Stephen not only acts as Emcee but also provides considerable efforts behind the scenes to assist in the organization of the complex event."
-Kerry Stevenson Vice-Chair Board Member of North Forge Technology Exchange
“In addition to reviving classic bits by the likes of Abbot and Costello and Nichols and May, Curtis and Sim riff on the dynamics of those teams with improv that proves the crack timing and rapid-fire verbal one-up-man-ship isn't just an influence on them, it's also their own achievement.”
“The duo do break out an improv. They’re so sufficiently adept they’d make you think it was scripted....”
-Winnipeg Free Press
