It’s Memorial Day weekend, peeps! I’m not implying you can’t read a calendar, I’m just mentioning it because it totally snuck up on me. I seriously cannot believe it’s the kick-off weekend of summer already.

Which can only mean one thing: parties. Summer in SoCal is… well, it’s pretty much the same as winter in SoCal, now that I think about it. We do live in weather Utopia here. But still, there’s a summer vibe that suggests relaxation, vacation, fun and, duh, parties.

In case you haven’t noticed, we at H2G are party people. And we’re improv people. And, like the peanut butter and chocolatey goodness of Reese’s, we think parties and improv are two great things that go great together.

We do a variety of party events: we can perform at your party and let you sit around doing jell-o shots while you shout out suggestions, or we can help you throw an interactive party where we facilitate games for your guests to play while doing jell-o shots, or we can do a combination where we do a show and include you and your guests and their jell-o shots in the show.

Of course, we also do parties that don’t include jell-o shots (or alcohol of any kind, if that’s your pref), including lunch-time work parties for stress reduction and morale boosting. I don’t mean to make it sound like the only parties that don’t include alcohol are at the office. Duh. Those are the ones that usually have the MOST booze. I just mean that we work within your definition of party and help you achieve whatever goal you’re looking for: Ice breakers. Entertainment. Something different than the same old backyard bar-b-q. A Friday lunchtime reward for a hard week at the office. Block party get-to-know-your-neighbors better. You name it.

These events are totally customized, so email Darren if you’re interested and he will give you a call to hammer out the deets. Oh, it does cost extra if we have to provide the jell-o. C’mon, people, we can’t do everything for you.
