Corporate parties organizers always have a hard time finding the right entertainment for the event. Their choice has to please all the employees together with the bosses. You can imagine the amount of pressure they are under.

However, there is a solution for organizers facing the issues mentioned above: Greg Schwem. Don’t take our word for it; the Chicago Tribune called Greg “King of the hill in the world of corporate comedy.”

In the following article, you will be able to learn more about this talented clean comedian, his achievements and why you should hire him.

A Comedic Take on The 21st-century Workplace and Work/Life Balance

Why Greg Schwem Is America's Corporate Parties Funnyman

The most important aspect you should know about Greg is he delivers laughs for the business world. His show and jokes focus on the workplace as we know it and that delicate work/life balance we all look and strive to achieve.

Greg has years of experience performing at corporate parties for some of the biggest companies in the world, like:

  • McDonald’s
  • Microsoft
  • General Motors
  • IBM
  • Hyatt Hotels
  • United Airlines
  • Cisco Systems.

He has also shared the stage with Celine Dion and Jay Leno and has been featured on SIRIUS Radio, FOX News, Comedy Central and the pages of Parents Magazine.

Virtual Presentation – You Can’t Quarantine Laughter

You have customers to reassure; some of you have markets to monitor and your sanity to maintain. The last one may be the toughest. Face it, laughter is needed more than ever, both in your personal lives and the business world. Which is why Greg Schwem, dubbed “Your boss’ favorite comedian” by HuffPost, is pleased to offer a virtual meeting, You Can’t Quarantine Laughter

WHAT YOU GET: You Can’t Quarantine Laughter is a 45-minute, customized virtual presentation . Greg Schwem will host the program, opening with a brief video that shows some of the country’s best known stars from the comedy and music worlds who have overcome adversity to become the leaders in their respective fields.

From there, Greg appears on camera and, through a series of comedic monologues and PowerPoint slides, shows participants that there is light at the end of the tunnel. The audience will see numerous examples of how companies used humor to create successful campaigns and turn their businesses around. He will show how companies have incorporated the coronavirus into their campaigns. Don’t believe that’s possible? Then you haven’t heard of the suburban Chicago restaurant offering a free roll of toilet paper with every takeout order! Through live chat and polling features, Greg will encourage audience interaction and will virtually discuss ways to incorporate humor into your group’s messaging and daily office routines. Hey, Greg is even okay with a little “virtual heckling.” Keep it clean, please!

WHAT YOU WON’T GET: Political statements and opinions. We’ve heard enough of those.

Why Is Greg a Perfect Match for Corporate Parties?

Greg did not though about a career in laughter. Not at first.

He graduated Northwestern University’s prestigious Medill School of Journalism and became a reporter. An award-winning one for NBC-owned WPTV in West Palm Beach.

However, he constantly felt drawn to the comedy stage. So, he returned to Chicago and started performing stand-up acts in nightclubs. From here to corporate parties, it only took a small number of shows.

As soon as he included jokes about business and technology into his act, he was approached by some of his audience and invited to perform for companies.

Greg is not your average stand-up comedian. What sets him apart from the rest is his talent to customize material for his audience. Instead of using profanity or politically incorrect material, Greg likes to keep it clean.

With massive amounts of wit, his jokes leave employees crying from laughter. Being an ex-reporter, you can imagine he knows how to make use of every funny detail.

Before the show, he will visit the company’s Internet site, the internal message boards, and even numerous PowerPoint presentations. The more information he finds, the funnier the show will be.

How to Hire Greg Schwem for Your Next Event

Being a corporate parties’ veteran does not necessarily mean you will not be able to book Greg for your next event. He is always eager for a new challenge, and there is no company too big or small to break out in laughter tears.
