Laughter is a shared experience that creates strong bonds. When we come together in the spirit of play, we leave more open, happy and connected. This resonates, leading to personal fulfillment, professional prosperity and community elevation. The Making-Box is a hub for live comedy and improv education. Since 2013, we have empowered thousands of individuals and businesses through improv training and delighted thousands more at our one-of-a-kind live comedy events. In 2016, The Making-Box was nominated for both Innovation Guelph's Start-Up Of The Year and The Guelph Chamber of Commerce: Community Spirit Award. In 2017 we launched Guelph's first storefront comedy theatre and improv training centre. In 2018, we added a satellite classroom in Kitchener-Waterloo and later that year were nominated for Guelph's Community Innovator Award. The strange and wonderful thing is that this only seems like the beginning for our company. However, the word 'company' is a misnomer because what’s happening feels more like a movement of people building community through comedy.
WHY THE NAME THE MAKING-BOX?
It's a pretty heart-warming story. You can call our Co-Founder Jay Reid and ask him.
