Feeling like your events aren’t interesting enough or lack an individual element which makes them stand out?
Well, have you ever considered adding a dose of comedy to them?
Having employees who maintain positive morale benefits your business in more ways than one, as it is linked to:
- increased productivity;
- lower turnover; employees with positive confidence are more satisfied and less likely to jump ship
- a more engaged, less stressful work environment overall.
After all, laughter is a surefire way to elevate the spirits at any event and ensure guests will leave feeling refreshed and just in a better mood.
However, while comedy is excellent, you still have to make sure all jokes stay within the bounds of a corporate event. In other words, no vulgar language or jokes which might offend part of the audience.
Comedy has the power to revitalize an event. That being said, here are 6 top comedians who check all the boxes and can breathe new life into your events.
1. Jeff Allen
Jeff Allen is one of those incredible comedians who has an incredible ability to unveil the humor in everyday life situations people in the audience can immediately relate to.
That includes family, relationships, but also work-related circumstances your employees may have stumbled upon once or twice before.
So yes, Jeff’s 100% clean brand of humor will have everyone in the room laughing throughout his performance.
However, he will also help guests disarm future, possibly tense situations by seeing the humor in them. So the next time things get a little hairy at the office, your employees will be able to overcome it by using laughter instead of anger or anxiety.
2. Joel Zeff
Joel Zeff is a very innovative performer, who often relies on improv and even audience input to create new and refreshing stand-up routines.
His shows are very dynamic, and this is mostly due to Joel’s charismatic nature and his enthusiasm to work with people.
Joel’s presentations are some of the funniest in the whole industry, his sense of humor is so out there that even the most comedians are jealous.
As a speaker, he focuses on issues such as productivity, passion, and collaboration in the workplace. He believes everyone should strive for success, and to achieve it, it’s essential to cultivate a positive mindset.
Also, although this may seem like a very gruff and sober topic – it isn’t.
3. Dave Dugan
Dave is one of those hilarious comedians who not only makes you laugh but also gets you thinking by offering an alternative viewpoint on issues most of us have to face.
In Dave’s case, that new perspective is meant to show we can all overcome our problems by not taking ourselves too seriously all the time and maintaining a positive mindset.
One of the best things about Dave’s shows is that the comedy is customized to fit the needs of every corporate event, as it transpires from the review below, as well:
“Your integration of our business into your monologue was a stroke of sheer genius. I knew you had the group hooked when I saw both our vice president and our director of worldwide manufacturing leaning back in their seats with their knees drawn to their chest because they were laughing so hard!”
-Carolyn L. – Meritor
None of Dave’s shows is precisely like the other, which makes sense considering no audience is exactly like another, right?
Another aspect your employees are likely to appreciate is the humor he packs into his performances. We’re talking about, clean, original, wickedly funny and quick jokes – delivered with impeccable timing.
4. Theresa Rose
Theresa Rose has many qualities, but it’s safe to say her best trait is her natural ability to interact with people. Theresa is in her turf when going up on stage, and the audience truly appreciates her all-natural and honest persona.
Theresa learned to be a people’s person by working from a very young age. She worked at a drive-thru as a teen and came in contact with maybe thousands of people.
This was a very formative experience and would prove very useful later on in her career when she eventually found her calling as a corporate comedian.
She is one of the most recognized figures in the world of corporate comedy. People can’t seem to get enough of her, as evidenced by the standing ovations she receives from the audience.
5. Todd Justice
Todd Justice is a veteran comedian whose primary goal is to help organizations maintain a great attitude by seeing the humor in everyday challenges.
This is already a recipe for success, but Todd takes things to the next level by adding a few other essential ingredients, such as:
- great charisma
- audience interaction
- spontaneous jokes which are the cherry on the cake
- an inspirational message which emphasizes how important attitude is in everything we do and how it can lead to positive change.

6. Rodney Marks
Rodney Marks is one of the hilarious comedians of recent times. He’s known in the industry as the comic hoaxer or the corporate impostor and his stand-up special “Hoaxes & Jokeses” is smash hit at business events.
His stand-up material is very diverse and dynamic, as Rodney is an incredibly skillful showman. To understand why to look a look at the crazy lengths, he goes into with his performance.
He disguises himself and infiltrates the client’s company to interact with the employees without them having any idea if he’s a colleague or not.
So he keeps the hoax on-going until eventually making the big reveal. Reactions are a mix of shock, disbelief but incredibly entertaining.
