THEY improv now operates in Turkey to provide team building on behalf of our clients in Instanbul and Ankara. With a variety of American-styled corporate events and training programs, we can help bridge the cultural divides, as well as bring a little bit of home to employees working abroad.



While the people of the United States and the Turks may grow up in vastly different circumstances, the reality is that the things we have in common far outnumber the things that keep us apart. We help to see the best in one another. Regognizing ourselves in those we work with, we bridge the cultural divide and create a safe and friendly work environment.

A Bonding Workshop is a great way to bring employees together and get them to see each other as individuals rather than job titles. These workshops can be used to teach a variety of other lessons including presentation skills, sales, communication, electronic communication, conflict resolution, and mental agility. Ask us today how a bonding workshop can help you accomplish your goals!

Consult with us to better determine how to achieve your corporate goals without anyone knowing that you are doing anything other than providing entertainment.

We serve Istanbul, Alanya, Ankara, Antalya, Batman, Bodrum, Bursa, Izmir, Marmaris, and elsewhere with the goal of bringing people together. It is our goal to help our clients while facilitating understanding between our clients and their Turkish partners and employees.

food venue

We do not have our own venues. We come to any restaurant, hotel, resort, cruise ship, club, or home. We can work with groups of any size in whatever location you want. The specific location may impact the cost and we will discuss this with you.



Formerly Constantinople, the city is both in Europe and Asia and crosses the Bosporus. There are large corporations operating from the Levent Business District and other area locations. Many international businesses call it home and use it as a jumping off point for relations between Europe and Asia.



The largest city by area and the second largest by population, Ankara is a hub for exciting activity for both government and business. There is no shortage of educational institutions providing people quite capable of handling jobs that become available.



Considered by some as the tourism capital of Turkey, there is no shortage of exciting and interesting things to see. Corendon Airlines and SunExpress call it home.



Bursa is a major hub of activity for the automotive industry. Several major players are in the city for manufacture and there are many other players that work on parts manufacture. Coke and Pepsi both have influence here for their drinks and food products.



İzmir is the third largest city in terms of population in Turkey and has a history crossing millenia as easily as others cross decades. A major port on the Aegean Sea, there is no shotage of commercial prospects here.



Americans hear Batman and think of the movies. That may be part of why it is included here. The reality is also that it is a producer of oil and that drives much of the economy here.

We can now consult for our clients throughout Turkey, though there may be some legal hurdles. These should not prove that difficult to surmount. Hiring THEY improv allows the best that the US has to offer for our American multi-national companies working within Turkey and to help companies understand and respect the cultural differences of their hosts. This allows for familiar programs to be brought to their locations at potentially a fraction of the cost of some other more expensive options while saving very costly situations that a cultural faux pas may cause.

We lead the way, providing murder mystery shows to get people to bond as they work together in groups, solving a series of problems. By doing so, they develop relationships with coworkers while determining the culprit. We have versions with our actors, and others using your executives as the suspects. This can also be done virtually to allow interrogations to occur overseas and in several locations at the same time. Contact us to determine how we can help you to bond your employees and partners without them even knowing! Likewise, we have mysteries that do not involve a murder.



Never Show Disrespect

There is a whole shoe thing where you are not to point them at people and should not cross your legs. Do not refer to Turks as Arabs. It is simply not accurate, and thus, offensive!

Do Not Disrespect the Country or People

This includes disrespecting the current political environment, the founding fathers, dangers within Turkey or internal conflicts with minorities. These are all sensitive topics are are unlikely to provide useful conversations.


Don't Split a Check

It just isn't a thing. You can offer to pay the whole check, but don't fight over it. A better choice is to offer to pay the next time. Whoever invited everyone out is the host, and thus, usually pays. So invite them out the next time to make up for it.

Don't Be Immodest

Dress fairly conservatively. The locals may dress a little racy but you are better off taking the conservative approach as being a westerner may impact how you are viewed more than a Turk might.

Improvisational comedy is a great way to have an ensemble entertain your group. Catching the lightning in a bottle, you experience moments that can never be repeated because everything is made up in the moment. The audience shares the creative process and can be active participants in the fun. We are quite congnizant of the need to maintain the dignity of your employees and executives during the process. Simply put, we make them look like stars!

Game shows invite your group to participate more directly through actually coming up on stage, and being put through TV Show-styled game shows to compete for not-very-expensive prizes (we wouldn't want anyone unhappy that they didn't win). This includes many of television's more popular shows along with more customized shows for your group. Truth Be Told is an offshoot of a popular import. This involves your people defending statements about their past which may or may not be true. Trivia Nights, similar to the popular pub games, gets teams to bond with one another and find out more about their coworkers outside of work. Our Audience Olympiads splits your group into two or three teams and have them compete in simple and fun feats of bravado. This can be Human Horseshoes or Face the Cookie, as examples. And if you don't know what those are, we look forward to a fun conversation!


WE CARE FOR YOU! We care for you and your guests. We will discuss your desires for safety measures regarding Covid-19 and want you to feel secure in the knowledge that we are looking out for you, our client.

If you want to have a high-quality show for your friends and family, we can help you with unique performance options. These can give you a private party that your guests will remember! Talk to us and we can come up with ideas that you may never have been able to think of.

The Turkish people live in a crossroads that the world uses. This makes it an interesting international destination like no other. This is hard for others to understand, but it is important to take into account and respect the people and their culture. This may include the name. It is actually Türkiye, yet we Anglicize it to Turkey. It is accepted and understood, but references to sandwiches are not appreciated and aren't as funny as you think. Because we mostly work with American companies operating in Turkey, we tend to operate in Istanbul, Alanya, Ankara, Antalya, Batman, Bodrum, Bursa, Izmir, Marmaris, and can go anywhere else you might wish to hold an event.


We Can Literally Speak Your Language



Most of THEY improv events are conducted in English. English tends to be the shared common language of our clients, though we may need to make some adjustments for varying cultures and backgrounds. Pop culture, for instance, might not be as shared. We will be happy to discuss your needs and adjust.



We can operate corporate events in a bilingual environment. Let us know your concerns and we will adapt our approach to address your needs in our program. We will go over rates and fees and determine the best approach.



We do have facilitators from all over the world who can operate for your group remotely or in-person in a variety of languages. Simply reach out and ask and we can work on developing options for your needs.

We serve Turkey with Team Building options to enhance employees through our processes. Our goals are to bond employees in Istanbul and Ankara, to help reduce employee turnover by improving working conditions of those operating far from home, and to bridge the cultural divides between transplanted workers and local hires. Simply contact us to find out how we can help!
