Why hire Positively Funny, Inc.?
Positively Funny, Inc. is a CREATIVE and UNIQUE company of professional ARTISTS who use their TALENTS to provide SMART, ENGAGING, and EXCEPTIONAL entertainment and educational programs that are always CLEAN, always POSITIVE, and always ENJOYABLE.
The use COMEDY as a means of EDUCATING, as well as ENTERTAINING is not new. We are just the first company in the Southeast to be able to provide you with a trifecta of funny. We actually provide FOUR services, but we were sure that "quadfecta" was not a word.
- Corporate Training and Professional Development,
- Corporate Entertainment,
- Public Performances,
- Improv training for the public and actors.
Our company is your only local source for a unique style of entertainment and/or education that rangers from professional development and entertainment for adults, to our engaging and educational teen-oriented projects through our Perform for a Purpose Division.
All of our entertainment and our educational programs are SOCIO-POSITIVE in nature. You would feel safe bringing your younger child or your grandmother to any of our performances.
Positively Funny, Inc. was founded by David Grissom (you can email him at: dgrissom@positively funnyinc.com), a seasoned professional in both the Improvisation performance end of our company, as well as the corporate training and development side. David received his training and experience from the birthplace of Improvisation - The Second City in Chicago. He also worked with the Chicago Comedy Company and Tri-Pawed Productions.
The beauty of IMPROVISATION is that no two performances are the same. Additionally, the principles of IMPROV carry over to our every day lives and can dramatically change the way you think and the way you live - living in the moment and thinking on your feet are not bad traits to have these days.
With over 15 years experience in Improv performance and training, David has come back home to Birmingham - a city that he loves to do the thing that he loves to do - make people LAUGH and to help people IMPROVe themselves.
In addition to Positively Funny, Inc., David is finishing up his soon-to-be-published book titled, "SocioPaths Less Travelled" and also working to start TEEN PROJECT GROUP, sister-company to Positively Funny, Inc. The genesis for the Group's Project Acceptance is based on his first book as it takes on the issues of acceptance of yourself and the acceptance of others, but with a humorous twist.
Don't let the NEW in our description scare you. Positively Funny, Inc. may be new, but that's the only thing new. And, well, you have to start somewhere, right?
The hilarious sketch comedy of the Carol Burnett Show, the physical comedy of Lucille Ball, Saturday Night Live (the good years), and of course, The Second City in Chicago, where we trained - the birthplace of Improvisation.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 45 - 120 minutes
Improvisation comedy by its very nature is UNPREDICTABLE and hilariously funny. No two shows are ever the same since we base our performance off of audience suggestions. We also bring audience members up on stage to participate in the hilarity.
Our comedy is SOCIO-POSITIVE - family friendly, never inappropriate - we use our talents to get our laughs and do not resort to potty-humor.
We chose our Improv games for a show from our catalog of over 750 different improv games, adding to the uniqueness of a show. For private events, corporate entertainment events - we customize the performance based on the culture of the organization that has hired us. We poke fun of what you dare not make fun of!
Our Corporate Training leverages the basics of Improvisation to teach a wide-range of topics, including: team-building, conflict resolution, group dynamics, transition management, diversity, just to name a few.
We also produce special Improv-based shows that include spoofs of popular hit TV shows - "Improv Idol" - spoof of American Idol that uses musical improv where songs are made up on the spot. We also involve the audience through karaoke. At the conclusion of the performance, the audience votes on their new Improv Idol.
Our HIGH-ENERGY, HIGH-CREATIVITY performances will leave you laughing for months to come. Unless you seek counseling.
Since it's Improv, we can do our show most anywhere - no true set, minimal lighting, and we provide the props we need. Our only rider is a box of Oatmeal Creme pies and Peanut butter. We won't have time to stop at the store on the way.
We can customize our performance to the needs of the client. There are over 350 Improv games that we can pull for our show. All games are FUNNY and always CLEAN.
