Comedy for Business is our business.
Since 1992, Troupe have been building a reputation as one of the leading exponents of improvised comedy in Australia.
Troupe create characters, scenarios and songs about your world. The famous TROUPE SHOW has been performed for clients all over Australia and overseas. Thousands have been entertained at conferences, functions, launches, schools, universities and so on.
Troupe perform for large or small groups of a diverse nature - from Boards of Directors of major public companies, associations, sales-forces, health or education professionals....
Let them liven up your next conference, or make your next function a memorable one. A TROUPE SHOW is always relevant, interactive and funny!
TROUPE DU JOUR create songs, stories and sketches on the spot and the audience suggest the themes and situations for their sketches. Often the show is about your working lives. It may be a crisis involving the coffee or the photocopier. TROUPE will then play out that crisis in the style of a romance or a kung-fu movie!’
‘We focus on tailoring our shows to suit the client. Whether there is a conference about teamwork, or a function dedicated to having fun, the TROUPE SHOW hits the mark by being funny, interactive and relevant.
That's what makes a TROUPE show special: they reflect the experiences of their audiences in a light hearted way. The audience get involved because they suggest the content. Sometimes the audience even find their way on-stage and become the real stars of the TROUPE SHOW!
The highlight at the end of the TROUPE SHOW is an improvised musical based on the life of someone special in the audience. After a short interview they perform an improvised Broadway musical based on the participants' life story: where they grew up, school days, first date, first job, etc.
It’s always a great finale.
Troup have performed before a diverse range of audiences, ranging from corporate boards, nursing associations, schools, from awards nights to product launches, from large to small groups. So whether you want a TROUPE SHOW after lunch, after dinner or to break up a long day, you'll always find them spontaneous, energetic and surprising.
