3 Types of Events You Can Book Him for
Dustin Nickerson is one of those entertainers people tend to label as ‘clean comedian’ when in fact he’s much more than that.
Sure, his preferred topics are clean comedy territory, and he has extensive experience in this field. This status is also strengthened by the fact he’s a winner of the San Diego Clean Comedy Competition.
But, if you attend one of his gigs, you realize his brand of humor can be used in far more diverse contexts.
Therefore, we thought it’s best if we present a part of these settings you could put Dustin in and selected 3 types of events he’ll be fitted to.
Type 1: Large Family Events
Family gatherings take different forms and proportions, so a smart event planner does not automatically assume they are served only by one kind of entertainment.
Talking about balance, we’d like to outline the family gatherings that are larger in attendance, and that could use a skilled entertainer to tackle everything the right way:
- Sweet 16 party
- Baby shower party
- Wedding receptions
- Baptizing party
- Graduation family celebration
- Celebrating events of great significance
For an entertainer to ace their act at these larger events, there’s one small detail which needs to be taken into account: family members know each other very well. These people usually know how to have fun together, so you need an extra something to impress them.
That distinctive element is one aspect Dustin Nickerson excels at. He manages to create a laid-back environment which he fills with smart hooks. This way, participants will never know what to expect.
As a side-note, Dustin masters the art of self-deprecatory rhetoric, branding his comedy as ‘average.’ And, as we may well know, the irony is something which goes right in with a healthy family environment.
Dustin is the man to handle bigger-scale family events which need that extra linking element.
Type 2: Corporate
Brisk and clear-cut, Dustin Nickerson‘s humor spawns both laughter and thought.
And what better combination to present to a corporate audience than this?
Be it a launch party or a convention; a corporate event needs to balance several elements, entertainment-wise:
- The recreational value
- The surprise element
- The intellectual challenge
All three are aspects Dustin incorporates brilliantly -- and also seamlessly -- into his craft, which makes him a likely candidate for your next corporate event.
Type 3: Trade Shows
Trade shows are among the largest events out there, so the funny bit, regardless of where it is placed within the schedule, has to:
- Be an instant attention-grabber
- Weave good humor with the specifics of the event
- Spark interest
Dustin Nickerson, albeit not the most obvious of choices at first, can be a lifesaver if you’re looking for someone to get a large crowd engaged.
His secret is called observational comedy, a method consisting in taking overlooked details from the daily lives and bringing them forward as compelling comedic elements. They’re instantly recognizable by most people, which makes observational comedians highly relatable.
A Truly Versatile Humorist
Mastering observational comedy is among the most useful skills a comedian could have in their tool shed.
Since he ticks this box -- and brilliantly, no less -- it’s easy to understand why he’s so well-liked by his audience.
It’s high time you discover him as well.
