The cast of EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH delivers high energy fast paced interactive comedy improvised on the spot based on audience suggestions. Every 5 minutes the MC interacts directly with the crowd and you decide what the next scene or song is about. Politics, Sports, your favorite TV shows and films and New York City itself all serve as topical subjects. Many games require the help of audience volunteers on stage to more directly steer the comedy pros. NO TWO SHOWS ARE EVER THE SAME!

All professional comedy cast includes international talent from STAGE, TV and FILM including WALT FRASIER (Billions, Friends of the People, Royal Pains, Blue Bloods, Letterman, MTV), AMELIA FOWLER (Top Five w/ Chris Rock, Power, Bull, Mysteries of Laura, Orange is the New Black, Blue Bloods), THOMAS BURNS SCULLY (Comedy Central’s Broad City, HBO’s The Rock n’ Roll Project, and IVANA MENDEZ (StartUp on SONY Crackle, Wrecked on TBS).


3p Matinees are all ages friendly.
7:30 Shows are similar to PG-13 movies.

We want all of our amazing team building clients to come and enjoy the show. If you think the workshops are fun, wait till you get on stage in these interactive performance. 3-4 games (Improv term for various skits and songs) invite audience on stage to more closely steer the comedy direction. Bring cameras to catch your colleagues and/or loved ones on stage with the pros.

Most of the performers are also our teaching artists in your corporate events with us. Many have appeared on TV. ALL are hilariously talented singer-actor-comics that deliver the laughs.

While these shows are not meant for kids, they are still appropriate for corporate team activities. A true PG-13 sensibility, the shows are edgy in energy and style by stop short of raunchy. Politics and pop culture scandals are handled with a broad brush. Nothing is safe but nothing is destroyed either. No one would leave feeling offended. Rather, our goal is provide therapy in laughing off the most stressful news in our worlds.

This is a public version of our corporate team building sessions.



For 15 years we have delivered powerful programming for both Corporate Teams and K12 Schools (via our sister program Improv 4 Kids). IN an effort to expand our mission to a great number of corporate teams and schools we may have the perfect solution for both.




Before 2008, companies spent millions on providing employees retreats to Caribbean Islands, big parties and other team building programming. Beyond our usual shows and workshops, we were paid a small fortune to send actors to Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Disney just to walk around and play characters, set dressing events.

Then 2008 happened and it seemed that ALL activities were cancelled.

After a couple years it was clear teams needed time to play and unwind, but each penny needed to be justified for educational purposes etc. Our company responded. Our model become less company party shows and interactive (murder mysteries and costumed characters roaming the crowds) and more team building workshop driven.

It turned out that these Improv workshops were even more fun than before. We were able to fill a valuable need, teaching team, management, service and sales skills while delivering fun downtime away form the office.



While everyone else stopped laying for a couple years, our educational outreach division flourished. This massive expansion to averaging 300 shows/year for K12 schools at first was due to non-profit budgets being affected by the 2008 crash a year later. In that time we made our mark and developed schools and other community center clients that remain with us today.

We deliver shows and workshops for students as well as professional development for teachers. Akin to our corporate programming, these incredibly fun programs deliver valuable educational tools.

We also bring the PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY concepts into schools. Students that fear failure do not participate.  Many of these students fear far more, with troubling situations at school, home and in the neighborhood.



The students that need our programs the most simply cannot afford the resources we provide, despite – as with many of our corporate programs – we under value our services (compared with many other programs).

We try to do deals with Title One Schools and simply cannot come down to a rate they can afford. In many cases they call begging for free programs – they have no budget but are in desperate need of the support we give.

So we have been looking for a sponsor for years to help subsidize programs for those that need us the most. Or more correctly put – we have thought for years, without active pursuit, that we could increase our impact on the communities that need us most with the help of sponsors. Sadly we just did not know where to start.

Until now….


We work with a few teams from large companies (Have you seen our client list?).

The New York Team … In the past 15 years, clients include teams from JP Morgan Chase, IBM, Morgan Stanley, Master Card, American Express, NYC Schools (DOE VENDOR), Microsoft/BING, Twitter, Louis Vuitton, Coach, Home Depot, Enrst & Young, GM, KRAFT, UBS, UNILEAVER and 100s more smaller/local firms.

These companies that spend millions in ad buys and sponsorship deals. These same companies could use more of our services but it is hard to justify those team building expenses to investors.


How about a package deal that subsidizes programs for your teams AND educational outreach to Title 1 Schools ALL PAID FOR BY MARKETING BUDGET!!!!

Simply increasing our rates on a single team building event to those comparable to our biggest competitors, would allow us to donate shows to 10 schools.

Meanwhile your company would be reaching 5000+ teens as well as their their teachers, parents and admin via marketing materials, study guides and social media branded with your logo and thanking you for your generous support, subsidizing the education and mentoring of the future work force.

Teaching these students the same skills we teach your teams, we are creating teens that are better students and future employees.

We can even have one of your representatives attend and say hello at the events. We could do a T- Shirt. We could do a video on social media. While our basic package is a game changer, we could deliver in a number of ways. We can even post signs at our club where we host field trips, corporate events and public shows. The venue sees as many as 5000 guests/week attending comedy shows and private events. We also share a lobby with the building of both residence and office spaces upstairs.


Leveraging our loyal following…

Our key to success since 2003 is our ability to offer a lot for a little. High Impact Low Cost. Our reach via live audience, online videos and social media is not huge but quite focused.

Our client base is moderate but highly loyal. Our success is our repeat clients – public audience, students and private event clients (corporate and K12 outreach). Most folks that read this blog have engaged us in some fashion in 2 ore more events. We have dozens of clients that are approach and/or surpassed their 10th year with us.

Teacher, Walt Frasier

Walt Frasier, a NYC based artist, has a diverse performance career that now include costar roles on TV (CBS Blue Bloods, USA Royal Pains, NETFLIX Lilyhammer, NICK Naked Brothers Band) and Sketch comedy bits on TruTV’s Friend’s of the People and CBS’s Late Night with David Letterman (9 episodes 2006-2007) and TruTV’s Friends of the People (2016). In 2002 he co-founded the Comedy Troupe, EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH which still performs weekly in Times Square and tours nationwide to colleges, corporate events and K-12 Outreach. Mostly known today for his Improv Comedy, Frasier still sings weekly in churches and previously has performed in Operas (Bronx Opera, Riverside Opera, Amalfi Festival) and Musicals (Fiddler – Gateway Playhouse, Scarlet Pimpernel – 2nd Nat’l tour, NYC Fringe Festivals). Favorite past roles include Rodolfo (La Boheme), Henry VIII (Man for All Seasons), Harold Hill (Music Man), The Prince KArl Franz (Student Prince). Most fun on set to date must be working with Stevie Van Zandt in Norway on the Lilyhammer series finally written and directed by icon from the E Street Band. But a close second was filming Royal Pains in Puerto Rico. Walter may be most recognizable for his role in two commercials as Dr. Oz’s Fat Pants, which was later discussed on David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and Pierce Morgan. However, Walt Frasier is always most at home performing live.

IMPROV WISDOM: Don’t Prepare, Just Show Up by Patricia Ryan Madson – SAY YES

“IMPROV WISDOM: Don’t Prepare, Just Show Up,” by Patricia Ryan Madson, is a book for everyone to read. This is all about using Improv in your everyday life – at work and home. Since reading it I have been hyper aware of my performance on stage and off. As a professional actor of 25 years, including 15+ years in Improv, this book is more affirmation, but sometimes we need this reminder. My mind returned to that place where I was inspired by a mentor. My performances have been elevated, as well as my teaching, business management and off stage work developing our programs to best serve our clients.

IMPROV WISDOM: Don’t Prepare, Just Show Up

Patricia Ryan Madson

improv wisdom


  • Just Say Yes
  • Become a can-do person
  • Look for the positive spin
  • Agree with those around you
  • Cultivate YES phrases 
  • YES AND… never YES BUT 
  • Exercise the YES muscle.
  • This Builds Optimism and Hope

YES AND… Is the #1 rule in Improv. If you have not heard this before, no worries, as you join this community of CAN DO folk, it will be repeated… and repeated…. and ZZZZZzzzzzzzzz….

YES AND… is so much more than just saying those words. To truly be come a great team player and leader we must truly learn to create the YES mentality deep down in our soul.

We need to say YES out loud and reaffirm often in our conscious and subconscious inner monologues.

FIRST we simply need to say YES. Keep it simple. JUST SAY YES ALL THE TIME.

Most of us have a lot more experience saying no. It is often the easier choice, selfishly speaking. It is the lazy choice. NO is the end. NO leads NO where. NO is also a boring choice. NO gives nothing back to collaborate.

Remember the second part of the title of the book, briefly – WISDOM. When someone says jump off the cliff, we will perhaps not oblige, although we can politely SAY YES and then safely walk away – in the other direction.

OTHERWISE look for ways to say YES, even when EVERYTHING in your body, mind and soul says NO.

SAY YES to yourself as well.

Look for those silver linings.

Get off the couch and go to the gym.

Start reading that book you have been putting off. (Read IMPROV WISDOM,download Kindle or Audible etc ASAP)

Start writing that book folks have been telling you to write for 15 years (NOTE TO SELF).

Start that new blog.

Take that class.

Ask for that raise.

Remember YES BUT is actually a delayed NO. You are not fooling anyone, except maybe yourself.

In Improv work, give yourself 100% to the scene, your characters and your scene partner(s).

Using Improv at home, trying saying YES to your family. Work together to find solutions to conflicts.

At the office, try saying YES AND… to ideas. Let infant possibilities from the minds of your conflicts lead to infinite possibilities.

In Improv Comedy, “YES!” is all about accepting your colleagues and their contributions to the team.  “YES” is Psychological Safety! As we play Improv games we are all equals, regardless of age, experience, race, creed, personality etc.  We create a safe space and level playing field for all to play. We accept our colleagues 100% as is.  EVERYTHING they say and do. We do not judge. We do not fear.

“AND…” is all about contributing valuable work and information to the team. We are not going to let our colleagues do all the work by simply saying “YES!” We are going to take this to the next level by accepting our colleagues work and building upon with our own contributions, supporting everything that comes before our new addition.”AND…” is Performance Drive, coming  from within.

When the whole team embraces “YES! And…” we enter the learning zone together. The entire team is now personally engaged in the success of the team. This brings out the best in all of us. We leave ego and insecurity behind. We trust ourselves and our team. We now are hyper focused on team  success and its goals.  The entire team accepts and overcomes challenges together. The entire team wins.
