Party & Event Entertainment – Monkey Business Institute

Hire Monkey Business Institute for Your Next Event

Monkey Business Institute is your secret weapon for a spectacular party. Our troupe of over thirty improvisers creates unique, immersive experiences to thrill your guests and make you the host with the most. We’ll bring the DJ, work with your party rental company or your venue, and handle the logistics—whatever you need to make your event a hit.

Bring our signature shows to you

Our Saturday night shows at the Glass Nickel sell out because we’ve perfected a lively, engaging improv style all our own. And we can bring that signature style straight to you no matter your event. Hire us for a private show at your company holiday parties, birthdays and more…we even do weddings and funerals!

Explore the many other formats
and services we offer

From ice breakers to surprises like character appearances and singing telegrams, from our signature short-form comedy performances to our specialty “Playshop” trainings for companies and organizations, Monkey Business Institute offers the widest, wildest range of entertainment and training possibilities—be it for a company event or a private party. Did you know we do murder mystery dinners, too?





Mix it up! Customize our entertainment offerings

Got a dream or a wild idea in mind? The improvisers at Monkey Business Institute can make it a reality! We’re highly-skilled, versatile professionals, which means we can offer a wide range of customizable experiences for your group. Looking for an improv show around a specific theme, or need an old-timey poet to crank out customized couplets for your party-goers? Maybe a Star Wars character comedy showdown? Singing telegrams or musical dinner theatre by our Monkey Tabernacle Choir? Whatever the occasion and whatever your needs––we’ve got you covered.


Add any of our custom services together as a package or use them solo

If you need an officiant and entertainment for your wedding or are looking for a keynote speaker along with an engaging and relevant playshop topic—keep us in mind for both. We can build out packages with your specific event in mind.

“Monkey Business designed a custom “Family Feud” game show experience for our marketing team. We thoroughly enjoyed the event Monkey Business created for us—it was fun, interactive, and exactly what we wanted to help engage our team in some good-spirited competitiveness. And the Monkey Business crew was such a pleasure to work with!”
