About Us

Custom Comedy Capers began in 1990 when Jim Bina and Jamie Newell decided they needed an additional outlet for their performing appetite. At the time, Jim was working for a singing telegram company and was tired of the limitations and income this job offered. The two of them decided it was time to slice off a piece of the American pie and Custom Comedy Capers was born.

Right place and right time…special events was taking a stronghold over the corporate community and Jim and Jamie jumped in head first and started riding the wave to success.

Fast forward to now and Custom Comedy Capers is the leading entertainment agency in the mid-west. The range of talent and services offered cannot be equaled. All the talent in the Custom Comedy Capers roster must meet the highest standards of excellence and is carefully screened for quality, professionalism and entertainment value.

The basic rule of comedy improv is to never negate what another performer states. With this rule in mind, Custom Comedy Capers embraces every idea, concept and dream our clients present. In fact, Jim chose the name, Custom Comedy Capers, because he wanted to highlight that the company customizes every performance contract to meet the dreams, expectations and budget.

Comedy is the cornerstone of the company. Jim and Jamie are aware that “funny-stuff” is what most people desire. Comedy evokes opportunities to release, remember and relish; all of which Custom Comedy Capers promises.

“Once again, I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and creativity for my client’s event this past weekend. Your entertainers added just the right touch in making the theme come to life. I will keep you posted on my future endeavors and will work with you again in the future.”  Rachel Hershinow, GM Productions
