two parties, (DNC and RNC of course) or just one big party, it
doesn’t really matter. For years GNP has been in the business
of “turning today’s headlines into tonight’s belly laughs”
–Washington Post. Since
1982 GNP has lampooning snoops, creeps, the Congress, Prez
& Veep as GNP’s fast-paced take on current events and social
satire is guaranteed to have you and your colleagues laughing
on both sides of the aisle. GNP is completely bi-partisan, customized,
and high-octane entertainment for groups of all shapes and sizes.
GNP delivers “sharp impersonations” says The Los
Angeles Times, “the city’s most popular company of satirists
who have been a favorite among those inside and outside the beltway”.
GNP has been seen both nationally and internationally on news
(check our media list (PDF) or client
list and has turned evenings into a political laugh-slide.
Even President Clinton got into the act: “You guys are great .
. . amazing.”
Institution’s Resident Arts Series told us: “600-knee-slappers
were captivated by your multi-talented troupe . . . thanks for a wonderful
evening.” Or Dow Chemical: “the program was a great
success” or The Corporation for Public Broadcasting: “your
group put on a top-notch revue that is obviously a tremendous hit with
all age groups, we, had a wonderful time laughing at the quick wit
and spontaneity that infused the evening with hilarity.” To view

season, GNP has a long history of "Unofficial" Debates (as seen
in our PBS specials) which are comedy duels including the likes
of GNP's political impersonators. These hysterical debates are
fueled by current events, and incorporate opening statements,
music, jokes, and questions from the audience. Using tested material
from the nation's top political sketch comedy team, this 30-minute
presentation is more entertaining than the actual debates, and
is guaranteed to please and entertain your audience. Check out http://theunofficialdebate.com/
or the gnpcomedy channel on YouTube for videos of debates from our PBS specials.
4. Can’t get the real one?
That is, the
real Prez, the real First Lady, the
real newscaster. We’ve got impersonators who are not just look-alikes
but also act-a-likes. We’ll tailor a town hall between a Democrat
and Republican for a political duel, involving the audience in
a hilarious improv debate, or you can
have the “Prez” grace your event. Even
if your event doesn’t quite have the budget for a full show, we’ll
produce a mini-event at which the London Observer
says the “GNP actors are first rate.”
5. And now for something completely
Try our send-up of the
motivational industry, The Moti-FAKE-tional
Speakers. Yes, that billion-dollar industry of self-help can
come to pump-up your conference as Wayne Allyn
Robbins and Ellen McPherson Root Robbin
Hayes whip you into a frenzy of can-do-spirit ecstasy. As
The San Francisco Examiner noted: “Politicians
come and go, and topical humor ages fast. But greed
and self-delusion, fueled by the hucksters’ art, are forever .
. . best of the show!” As The Washington
Post stated: “For sheer maniacal perfection, the motivational
team of Wayne Allyn Robbins and Ellen
Perry is a riot!”
