The Amazing Improv Dads is a group of fathers who offer interactive G-rated entertainment. Their kids say they are pretty amazing.

The "Dads" was formed early in 2003. Its creation was a response to a father's frustration at not being able to find suitable entertainment for his entire family to enjoy together.

The "Dads" pooled their talents to create this unique troupe. Cumulatively they have experience as teachers, musicians, actors, comedians, writers and more.

The business is owned by Russell Swanger, a.k.a. The Big Guy. As the leading force and principal entertainer, he recruits the other dads as the client's needs demand. Variable programming is available for an assortment of events and venues including fairs and festivals, libraries, schools, private parties and corporate functions and more.

There are many programs that can be customized to almost any event. Each one provides interaction with the audience and has the unique "Dads" influence to make it truly memorable.
