Early Inspiration

The spirit of Wits’ End Productions can be traced to 1947. That’s when Phil Erickson partnered with Dick Van Dyke, then a local DJ, to form the “Merry Mutes,” a traveling comedy duo. During the early 1950s, they found success in Atlanta, Georgia where they performed original skits and music on a live, local NBC TV show.

The original Wits’ End

By the mid-1950s, they each decided to chase their dreams, so Dick headed north to New York City and Phil opened Wits’ End, Atlanta’s first cabaret dinner theater, and formed the Wits’ End Players. A roaring success, the group entertained U.S. Presidents, received a key to Atlanta and had the entire city singing Tearin’ up Peachtree.

Lights, Camera, Action

Inspired by their parents Phil and Nancy, Steve and Jamey Erickson charted their own path by launching a corporate video production firm aptly named Wits’ End Productions in 1987. Leaning on their parents’ advice and cameo appearances in early videos, the Erickson brothers quickly expanded to offer special event production and live trade show marketing services.



Today, Wits’ End Productions is an innovative brand experience production company offering a collection of digital and live services. Preserving the Erickson family’s creative spirit, we pride ourselves on delivering beyond expectations to share our clients’ stories.

While the Wits’ End Productions story is still being told, our ambition will never change. When creating experiences matters, Think Wits’.
