The Character Guys is an entertainment content creator and producer for high-profile private and public events on the Canadian west coast and throughout North America. We specialize in roving characters, event emcees, video event coverage and interviews and live game shows. Our company thrives because of our passion for new ideas, our commitment to perfection and our years of experience. We are experts at breaking the ice, enhancing event themes and boosting the engagement of attendees.
Characters – All characters offered on this website are tried-and-true hits with events just like yours. They are quick-witted, high-energy with lots of fantastic detail — the result of research, rehearsal and performance experience.
Costumes – Costumes should reflect the quality of our performances and the event we are performing at. Ours do.
Content – Our creative content is fresh, vibrant and on point.
Custom-made – If you have a specific character, game show ideas, or stage component in mind that you need for your event, just drop us a line or give us a call. No doubt we’ll be able to create it for you. Some of our most popular characters were born out of necessity — that is, a client requested it, so we put it together. Which means, the longer we’re in business, the larger our list of characters becomes.
