Media & Partnerships

Our partners have included royalty, celebrities, incredible artists and influencers and we have performed at the Houses of Parliament, palaces, concert venues, museums, international halls right through to the smallest business owners venues, their residences sometimes. For us, a gig is a gig regardless if we are performing for 5,000+ or a handful of people. We do our utmost to deliver to the highest level of our capabilities and innovate so that it forms part of your ‘positivity reservoir’ of memories and enable our artists to showcase their incredible skills and with dedication to making this world a tiny bit better place for us all to enjoy together earn their living. Our collaborations are growing every day as customers reach out to us and we get recommended and we thank you all for the wonderful opportunities – it has been one delightful journey. Below are few examples of the types of engagements that Groovie team delivered & were mentioned on TV, Radio & publications.

We have contributed as subject matter experts from wellbeing, mental health, building stage craft, performance management, risk management, team building & team development and gifted many jokes & wittiness to brighten up the day for the fans of positivity, comedy lovers, creative souls and listeners. We are not just a stand up club. We diversify in such way that we use arts and different performing arts, artforms, to train those who are predominantly “left brain thinkers” to engage their right brains too. Our forte is delivering ad-hoc events in corporate world to the specification of our customers to develop new capabilities for a team or whole function using the most beautiful artforms comedy, dance, music & spoken word, eliciting laughter and joy as this is when the happy juices are flowing through everyone’s brains and they learn with ease and remember it longer. We provide training & after dinner entertainment combining different styles and artform, which is why our address and contacts list is so wide ranging. We invest into our respective communities by organising and running a wide range of community events from coaching young people to providing events for older, more senior citizens. We know that laughter, dance and engaging in different artforms can delay some conditions and keep you young for longer. And you could say we are prescribed on NHS for free – Practically YES! We are one of the rare production firms that offer 75% off to all key workers (see our offers page) and anyone they refer to us gets free tickets for every one of our shows if they cannot afford it and could do with our love, gumption & support. We facilitate showcasing new and up and coming talent in the range of area where it will impact our society in the most positive way.

It started with this Balkan Girl moving to the UK, Groovie’s founder, who has been through such life challenges that Groovie Comedy, was launched in Istria and is her answer to offer support and champion some basic moral and ethical values in the way she conducts her business. Our brand name comes from 3 words: combined GROOVY & VIE which in French means ‘life’ playfully with words hinting that for us we aim for positive, uplifting, highly stimulating displays of various artforms that wake us up and make us feel and motivate us to be the best that we can be through laughter, body movement & creation and… we can run events in 21 languages if you need us to do that in your respective countries or in the UK. Many of our artists and partners have performed across the world and, for us, it is just another day in the office to be flown across the world to deliver a gig.
