Four Reasons You Should Hire Top Comedians for Your Next Corporate Event

You’ve come to the right place! With countless speakers and musicians in the world, it can be hard to find someone a little more, well, exciting. Sure, there are exceptions to every category with musicians such as the iconic music group Chicago and the infamous speaker Magic Johnson, but who has the time and energy to look through countless results from Google, when you could be laughing and finding entertainment as well? “How can I make my life more enjoyable and still find entertainment for the corporate event next month?” you ask. Simple, book top comedians. But don’t listen to us, listen to reason. Here are the top four reasons you should hire the best comedians for your corporate event.

1) Laughter is the Best Medicine

This just in: Scientists discover the ground-breaking cure for sadness! The solution is so simple, yet so powerful…laughter! I know, I know. It sounds cliche, but we all know that decent comedy is hard to come by, and actually, funny comedy is even rarer. May we share with you a little-known secret? Okay, here it goes…as long as you know where to look, it really isn’t that hard to find talented comedians, especially ones that will make your corporate event a success! Whether it’s a male, female, or puppet, you are guaranteed to be cured of your sadness, if only for a little while.

2) See the World Differently

When you stop and think about it, what exactly makes a talented comedian? Is it the fact that they’re funny? No, lots of people are entertaining, that doesn’t necessarily make them a comedian. Maybe it’s because they’re not afraid to put themselves out there? No, that’s not it, lots of people put themselves out there. Oh! I’ve got it! They see the world differently. That’s it! But why is that so important? Well, if everyone saw the world as a right-brained person, we wouldn’t have the engineering behind planes and cars. If everyone saw the world as a left-brained person, we wouldn’t have the laws in the justice system or the stories of legendary authors. Needless to say, the world is a better place because of the diversity of the way people see it.

But…how does all that relate to comedy? Great question! You want your corporate event to inspire your corporation, right? Your team needs to be able to think outside the box to further advance your company…correct? Comedy can help that. By hearing and seeing how other people view the world, others can learn from that and apply it to their work. Don’t believe us? Take a look at before and after your corporate event, and we’re sure that you’ll be astonished to see the difference. All it takes is a little creative thinking!

3) Bring Your Team Together

“Hey, remember that time when…wait, never mind. You weren’t there. Oh, but you should have been! It was just so…well; you wouldn’t understand.” How many times have you heard that before? The time when someone was sharing an adventure or an inside joke, but you just weren’t there. What’s even worse? When it’s a co-worker. *Sigh*.

But why is that so discouraging? Well, as humans, we want to share experiences with other humans. Not only that, but we want to know that they valued that experience too. But first, to create an inside joke or memory, there must be an experience. And what better experience than a comedy show? There’s no doubt that an inside joke brings together two friends, so imagine what it could do at your next corporate event! By the end of it, you have a tightly bonded team that becomes a well-oiled machine. And for all this reward, all you have to do is hire a comedian!

4) Even a Broken Clock is Right Twice a Day

And last, but surely not least…the world honestly isn’t as bad as some people make it out to be. Yes, there’s death, and pain, and suffering, but you can always find the good in things if you simply look. Yes, I know it’s hard, but honestly, don’t you feel happier when you remember to look on the bright side? It’s even in Monty Python so it must be true! But seriously, when you’re more optimistic and excited about life, don’t you do better in everything? From your social life to your professional life, it becomes easier to experience more. Comedy seems to be able to remind you that life isn’t all bad, whether it’s a delayed flight or teaching a teenager to drive humor can be found. After all, even a broken clock is right twice a day!

So Honestly…

What are you waiting for? The broken clock to be correct? The time is now! Plan your next event to bring your entire group together! And what better place to start than entertainment? Hire your comedian today!
