Improv. Everything you need is already there…
Excused Absence Comedy has been making audiences of all ages laugh since 2007. Formerly known as Move Your Tale, our high energy, interactive comedy invites audiences and workshop attendees to see their ideas supported and brought to life onstage and in the classroom. Engaging and entertaining, our 50 minute shows and 1 – 3 hour workshops empower audiences and participants to feel confident about sharing ideas and flexible about the outcomes.

Each event is designed to suit the size and make up of individual groups. Shows for young audiences and families include high energy group participation. Shows for teens and seniors may rely more on wordplay and individual audience volunteers. Our classic show format builds on audience suggestions, while tailored shows emphasize themes suggested by presenters. Workshops provide opportunities to find the funny in what’s already there by providing tools for being a better listener, cultivating a flexible mindset and fostering teamwork. Audiences large and small will find that our professional comics and teaching artists are adept at not just making people laugh, but at inviting you to listen and say “Yes, And” to the world. Cast size varies.
