A corporate party is a big event. The guest list can range from low level employees to CEO’s. Planning an event like this can be stressful, especially for the person in charge of hiring the entertainment. Whether it’s done as a team, by a single person, or maybe through an agency, whoever does the hiring has to make sure that the performer is appropriate for the setting. You wouldn’t want to book a heavy metal band for the office Christmas party. Based on the type of entertainer, the experience can vary and so can the booking process. This can definitely be said for anyone looking to hire a comedian.
A comedian has one basic goal: to make their audience laugh. From this knowledge, it’s easy to understand the best way that happens. If you watch any kind of comedian on T.V. there are two key things to notice about what makes up their whole act. One of those things is by using swear words. They will use every swear word in existence, including making some up on their own and merging words together to create their own brand of insult. Another factor in their performance is by being very stereotypical, more specifically towards different ethnicities. If there’s a defining characteristic, term, or type of insult directed at a particular race, you can believe a comedian will say it. The whole idea is to be able to laugh at yourself, but sometimes this can be taken a bit too far or out of context.
These reasons are important to remember when you decide to hire a comedian for a corporate event. It’s important to remember that not all comedians are made for events like that. Some are just stand-up comedians and perform at small clubs and venues on the weekends. Others tailor their material for more formal settings. What’s more, their material may not always cater to the needs of a private party. A comedian’s act usually contains a large amount of inappropriate language and content; it’s part of what grabs people’s attention in the first place. If there is material that you don’t want to be talked about or said than be sure to let the comedian know so they can fix their act accordingly. There are several websites that specifically hire or work with corporate comedians. Be sure to check out those websites and set up a meeting with your potential entertainer to make them aware of the atmosphere they would be performing in. Don’t go to comedy clubs to scout your talent. One other thing to consider is price range. Depending on their level of professionalism, their pricing can greatly very. This is why it’s best to go through an agency, so a consulting can give you the best advice and options on hiring the right person for the event.
When planning any large business event, it is important to remember that you are representing yourself and the company. Who you hire and what services you provided will fully reflect back at you. Be sure to have the proper knowledge for a smooth function!
