Want to make your guests laugh out loud? Then keep on reading to see one of the best picks regarding comedy.

8 Entertainers That Will Make Your Guests Laugh and Cry at the Same Time

1. Eric Buss

Eric is one of the most energetic comedians you will ever see. His fast-paced act is perfect for a morning or an evening event. Thanks to his energy, he can keep any audience entertained and alert for a long time.

He performed his act on “The Late Show” with David Letterman, and he was also on America’s Got Talent. With his homemade props, he managed to turn his act into an award-winning show.

2. Don Friesen

Dan has won the San Francisco International Comedy Competition two times, and he probably won’t stop here. He is clever, witty, insightful and incredibly relatable to audiences of all ages.

He discovered his passion in college when he started an improv group. Later on, he toured the country and was writing and performing nonstop. This allowed him to find his voice and comedy style.

3. David Crowe

David has been a comedian for more than 20 years and has been featured on Comedy Central, Pandora and many others.

His career took off after he won the Seattle and San Francisco Comedy Competitions. David’s facial expressions, funny accents, and contagious charisma make him a hit.

He has performed at hundreds of corporate or private events so far, and all clients loved him.

4. Jeremy Hotz

Jeremy is a stand-up comedian born in Canada, who has achieved worldwide success. His Canadian theater tour “What A Miserable Tour This Is…” was sold out, due to his observational comedy.

He also had quite a few appearances on TV, which made him even more popular. Jeremy even won the Jury Prize for Best International Performer at the Sydney Comedy Festival.

5. Ross Bennett

Ross can change the perception of those who say they are not a fan of stand-up comedy. He has been delivering smart, clean comedy for more than 30 years.

Topical humor is Ross’s specialty when it comes to corporate comedy. He knows how to blend in childhood stories to deliver a hilarious act.

6. Bob Cates

Bob is not only a comedian but a juggling champion as well. His comedy show involves:

  • Advanced juggling;
  • Wild unicycling and balancing skills;
  • Magic;
  • Dance;
  • Blacklight, lasers;
  • An insane 22 real plate spinning finale that has to be seen to be believed.

His show is clean and appropriate for all ages and will make your guests laugh and cry at the same time.

7. Chris Blackmore

Chris is an entertainer who does his homework before performing in front of an audience. He first has to understand your needs to deliver a great magic gig.

He uses comedy and magic to stir the imagination and unlock the participants’ mind.

8. Bob Nelson

Bob started his stand-up comedian career back in 1978. Since then, he has had hundreds of performances at comedy clubs, colleges, corporate events, or charity events.

In his performances, he likes creating different characters, and we promise your audience will love all of them.

9.  Jeff Allen

He is a funny guy with everyday problems – a wife, kids, a no-nonsense wardrobe, and an old-school sensibility that might well be dying in our fast moving, technological world. However, Jeff Allen is not going down without a fight and will make your guests laugh everytime.

10.  Brad Trackman

As a short, left-handed man, Brad Trackman had the odds stacked against him from the get-go. However, don’t be fooled by this unassuming southpaw for a second. Brad calls it as he sees it, and isn’t afraid to call out an ugly baby or two. What? Sorry, but the Truth is a tough call, and Brad Trackman is the man for the job.

11. James Gregory

“Know Thyself:” words James Gregory lives by. For many people on this earth, a day job is not the place for them, but only a few are brave enough to admit it to themselves. Thankfully, James recognizes that his place on this earth had nothing to do with neckties and break rooms, and everything to do with microphones and green rooms. “Give a warm welcome….”

12.  Ron McGehee

What do you get when you marry an Irishman to a Korean woman? Standup comedian Ron McGehee, that is who. Some comedians have their work cut out for them with just one of these heritages running through their blood, but Ron McGehee, man. He has his work cut out for him! Like mixing any two elements together in a laboratory, there is always a chance for an explosion.

13.  Rex Havens

Warning: you will never see your life in the same way after Rex Havens has his way with you. This comedian will take even the most pedestrian events of every man’s life and put it in a paradigm blender, then push “puree.” Just be sure you are clear on who you are in your soul before Rex Havens walks on stage.
