If it’s up to you to plan a corporate event, then you may feel overwhelmed by the sheer variety of entertainment acts you can book. The entertainment factor is one of the most important aspects of any social event. When done well, it can make the event stand out.
That’s why we decided to help you narrow down the list and tell you about ten amazing entertainers who are almost guaranteed to be a hit with the audience -- whether you’re planning a company party or an award ceremony.
Few performers can keep their audience entertained for hours on end. Moreover, such performers aren’t easy to find.
Entertainers That Can Make Your Event One of A Kind
However, in the following article, we have put forth a list of corproate entertainers who will have your guests laughing from start to finish and can truly transform an event into a unique experience!
So let’s get to it!
1. Nina Conti
Nina Conti is an entertainment powerhouse from the U.K. She was born in Hampstead, London, and it’s safe to say she was born to be an actress.
She is the daughter of actors Tom Conti and Kara Wilson. And, even since her early childhood, Nina followed in their footsteps.
She has been performing since the mid-90s and has appeared on television shows, as well as major Hollywood blockbusters.
Perhaps, her most ambitious performance is her ventriloquism act, where she created her own set of unique and lovable characters.
2. Darci Lynne
Darci Lynne Farmer is a young and talented ventriloquist from Oklahoma. She made her big debut on the 12th season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent.
It was obvious even from the audition stages that Darci would have quite a lot of success during the show’s run. She exceeded everyone’s expectations.
Darci’s unique brand of comedy paired with her convincing act of ventriloquism clicked with the audience and the judges. Eventually, she came out on top of everyone and managed to win the competition.
After her success on AGT, she was invited to America’s Got Talent: The Champions, where she finished as the runner-up.
3. Terry Fator
Variety is essential during a show. It helps to keep the audience invested in the performance. Most amazing entertainers tend to focus on a particular niche, yet some can master a whole set of skills.
Terry Fator is one of those jacks-of-all-trades. He is a comedian, a singer, a ventriloquist, and perhaps most well-known as a “World Class Impersonator.”
His main act is a fusion between ventriloquism and impersonation, where Terry creates a very elaborate comedy show with his cast of dolls. As the winner of Season 1, Terry Fator was the first of many comedians from America’s Got Talent. He is one of the best Las Vegas Corporate Party Entertainers.
4. Taylor Mason
Taylor Mason is the lone-wolf of the entertainment industry. He has made an entire career without following trends and has developed a style of comedy he can call his own, blending music, magic and ventriloquism.
A thing you need to understand about Taylor is that he is very versatile, being able to adapt his humor to any audience.
At one time, he can deliver a performance which is more straightforward, fit for television. On other occasions, he can put on an elaborate comedy show which is more tailored for live audiences.
Kevin Johnson is a master ventriloquist who has been in the industry for well over 40 years. Yes, you heard that right.
Kevin has been doing professional shows since he was 13. He learned ventriloquism from the age of 9 and later down the line was brought on stage by his grandfather, Harley Noles, who was a touring magician.
As Kevin performed shows through the years, he managed to build an audience, and by the late 90s, he was already performing shows on his own.
This article wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t mention Clyde the Buzzard and Matilda the Cockatoo -- which are his signature puppets.
With their help, Kevin delivers some of the most exceptional humor out there. Also, they’re such an integral part of the performance that often, people get the impression they have their own personalities.
6. Tom Cotter
You may remember Tom Cotter as the first comedian to ever reach the finals of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” However, even before this important achievement, Tom was already one of the most prolifically funny comedians in the industry -- having won numerous awards, such as:
- Seattle International Comedy Competition
- The grand prize at The Boston Comedy Festival
- Voted “Best Stand-Up” at The Las Vegas Comedy Festival
However, the main reason we wanted to include him in this article is that Tom’s raw satire, clever wordplay and flawless timing all come together in one hilarious act which appeals to a wide array of audiences.
Still not convinced? Make sure to check out the video below showcasing some of Tom’s best moments on stage.
7. Ron Pearson
Ron Pearson started his career as a stand-up comedian at nightclubs and went on to become a famous actor and top corporate entertainer.
Audiences love him for his interactive performances, high-quality humor and light-hearted look on life. If you decide to book Ron for your event, you can rest assured knowing there won’t be a single dull moment at your event.
Ron’s motto is always to have fun. Also, that’s precisely what his primary goal as an entertainer is to make sure your guests will enjoy being at your event. And for that, he has an extra ace up his sleeve.
On top of the best humor, the audience at your event will also get to experience fantastic jugglery -- a skill Ron has come to perfect over the years.
If you want to see Ron Pearson do what he does best -- entertain- make sure to check out the video below:
8. Dana Daniels
On multiple occasions, Dana Daniels has been labeled as one of the funniest magicians in the industry. You only need to see the audience’s reactions to his show, and you may be inclined to agree.
As a magician, Dana uses close-up magic tricks and mentalism to make his viewers question reality, to a point where even the naysayers will suspend their disbelief.
Calling Dana “just a magician” would downplay his talent. He doubles as a comedian although he cheats a bit at this part because he’s not performing alone, but with his partner, who is usually the funny one.
We also need to mention that his partner, Luigi, is a small green-parakeet. This little fella’ serves as Dana’s psychic connection, allowing him to perform his extraordinary acts of mentalism.
With Dana and Luigi on stage, you better prepare for a night of comedy and magic because you’re going to receive the entire package condensed into one show!
9. Courtney Hadwin
Courtney Hadwin is a 14-year-old singer with a powerful and resounding voice. She has the incredible ability to captivate the audience and lull them into a swirl of emotions.
She made her big debut on America’s Got Talent, where she blew everyone away during the auditions with a stunning vocal performance.
Courtney was one of the most amazing entertainers to appear on America’s Got Talent Season 13. Her performance was so fiery in fact that judge Howie Mandel couldn’t abstain from pressing the Golden Buzzer.
Due to her performance on the show and positive reception from the audience, she received an invitation to perform at the Champion’s edition.
There, she took a spin at rock & roll, performing a Tina Turner classic which lit up the whole stage.
10. Naturally 7
Naturally 7 is a vocal group which uses the power of the human voice to create an amazing soundscape. The 7 piece group is known for their impeccable acapella performances which contain layers upon layers of sounds.
Brothers Roger and Warren Thomas founded the group, and they quickly got in touch with other singers to form the first iteration of Naturally 7.
In this form, the band would participate in an acapella competition, in which they made it until the final stages -- showcasing that the group had the potential to become something big.
Through practice and creativity, the group held many shows and won one competition after the other. Their big mainstream debut came when they participated on The World’s Best, showcasing their incredible skill to the audiences from all around the world.
They made it until the semi-finals, and while they didn’t win the competition, they conquered the audience’s hearts with their soothing vocal performances.
