We do everything the Knuckleball Comedy way: with style, confidence and energy - just ask those who have worked with us
“I had an amazing experience working with Richard, Cassidy, and Ethan from Knuckleball Comedy as part of our elementary school's Fall enrichment program. Ethan was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process - from making himself available to explain their services to me by phone initially to following up after the program was over to make sure we were satisfied. Richard was loud and boisterous, making the kids highly engaged in the activities he presented. Cassidy was kind and connected easily with the children who kept wanting her to come back. I also appreciated that they were willing to drive from Chicago to Elk Grove for us! Activities were age-appropriate, engaging, fun, and worked on a lot of skills. The kids have been remarking that this was the most fun they've had at the school's program which took place during our Fall break. It is a wonderful service they are providing to students and I would easily recommend them!”

“Knuckleball Comedy’s instruction created a perfectly sequenced afternoon that allowed our summer associates to warm up to the idea of improv while still pushing them out of their comfort zone. I watched as some initial skepticism gave way to full enjoyment as our class laughed, bonded and “yes and”-ed their way through our session. Our goal for this event was that our summers could enter the workplace equipped to confidently express their ideas which would, in turn, foster effective collaboration with a new set of colleagues - Knuckleball delivered in every way.”
