Bots People Actually Want To Engage

Turn Boring Into:


  • Technical and creative consulting
  • Personality bible creation
  • Interactive script writing
  • Training data creation for neural networks
  • Character social media presence
  • Voicee performance recruitment and direction


Don't let your chatbot be generic. Give it a character and your users will thank you for it. We're a team of comedy writers turned roboticists with backgrounds in AI. We can write a character bible for your social robot, consult on the design of your robot, write for your interactive chat system, create training data for your generative bot, or improve your presence on social media.

Neil deGrasse Tyson calls us "a creative engine of science comedy for all those who seek it."
David Hanson said that "not only did they bring wit; they brought insight, creativity, passion, and purpose."


We’re the creative consultants for robots at multi-billion dollar companies and award winning academic chatbots. We’ve even sold two interactive chatbots at Sotheby’s for.a total of $1.2 million. There’s a lot more bragging on the next page.

You want people to engage with your bot. How do you keep people interested? Humor is an effective way to increase the user experience. Read our interview in Business Insider on “Why AI Should Not Be Boring.”


We’ve increased the numbers of social media followers of robot and AI characters online by up to 50x, and we’ve run social media accounts for clients with hundreds of thousands of followers, like Sophia the Robot with over 215K followers on Instagram and over 134K on Twitter. Some of our posts have gone viral.

We’ve hosted academic conferences in Japan and Sweden, and given keynotes, lectures, and speeches at institutions such as Yale University.


Sarah Rose Siskind rocked out all kinds of writing for us, from Sophia's personality and chatbot authoring, to social media, to TV events. Not only did they bring wit; they brought insight, creativity, passion, and purpose. I deeply appreciate their super work, and look forward to many more collaborations with them into the future-- to the Singularity and Beyond!
