If you’re looking to bring some excitement to your next event, then The Character Guys are your guys! Mike and Jesse have helped play the roles of Coach and Ref at our Super Bowl parties and they really are hilarious!  They’re not afraid to get right into character and the reactions from our listeners are priceless. We’ll definitely book them again next year.

I personally loved what you did and thoroughly appreciate professionals who get it and are capable of keeping in character and improvising with just the right touch, but not going over the line. Thanks so much and I won’t hesitate to contact you in the future or recommend you to colleagues.”

Mike, Nick and the rest of the troupe are hilarious interactive performers who are adaptable to any situation. From strolling comedic RCMP Characters for a Welcome Reception to animated Game Show hosts for an after dinner show these entertainers are always a success. Their list of stock characters is almost endless…..each one spot on! They have also created custom characters for a variety of unique events. The preparation, research and effort The Character Guys put into every event exceeds expectations. They are truly professional in every sense AND FUNNY!
