Being in charge of organizing corporate events can be quite demanding, especially considering you have to come up with fresh company event ideas all the time.
There’s no doubt that whoever is in charge of entertaining your audience needs to leave a positive yet remarkable imprint on them.
Have you found that person for your next event?
If not, we are here to give you a helping hand.
In this article, we are going to talk about a surprise act that is like no other.
Ladies and Gentlemen, The Three Waiters!
Yes, it is a peculiar name for an entertainment act, but we can assure you that it is one of the best ones you will ever see.
However, before we discover what their acts are all about, here are some interesting facts about The Three Waiters:
- They are the most successful singing waiters act in the world for corporate events (but not exclusively).
- They had over 11,000 shows in no more and no less than 85 countries.
- They started out in 1998 in Sydney, Australia.
- They perform a one-of-a-kind act.
When was the last time your company event ideas really surprised your attendees?
Most event planners would rather stick to tried and tested arrangements:
- Food and drink
- A band or singer
- Handing out freebies
And it’s understandable. If something works, don’t fix it, right? Unfortunately, there are only so many times you can use that tactic before it gets old.
People always want to experience new things. They just don’t know it yet.
But how do you do it in a way that doesn’t spoil the surprise? The answer is easy: you keep your guests in the dark about the whole thing.
Promise entertainment at your event, but never tell the attendees what it is. Then get the Three Waiters to blow their minds.
Who Are the Three Waiters?
Imagine you’re at a nicely set up corporate gala. The food is just right, the drinks are cold, the venue is not crowded, and the air is not stuffy like everywhere else.
But where’s the entertainment? Out of all the company event ideas to forget, entertainment should not be one of them.
Suddenly, the waiter who brought you your wine a few minutes ago is on stage. He’s tapping on the glass with a little spoon to attract attention. What is he up to?
Out of nowhere, he starts singing opera. And two more waiters are joining in!? That wasn’t all left up to the group to improvise.
Unlike other ‘singing waiters’ shows, The Three Waiters is not slapstick or improvised.
The act is a planned hoax with a carefully written script perfected over thousands of performances.
How Is The Three Waiters’ Act Different than Others?
The facts we briefly mentioned earlier do say a lot about the success of these performers.
Now, we are going to walk you through the concept of the show and what you can expect if you hire them for your corporate event.
First of all, The Three Waiters is not a deceiving name. They will pose as real waiters at your event. The guests will not even have a clue about what’s about to happen.
In the beginning, they will act as normal waiters. They will help the audience find their seats, serve drinks, being helpful and slowly becoming more and more visible.
They will manage to draw attention to them but in the most subtle way, by making a brief announcement, for example.
Here’s a sneak peek in the video below.
Then, the guests will be surprised when, out of the blue, the waiters start to sing. Not to mention they are incredible opera voice.
By the end of the show, The Three Waiters will make a reveal of the full act.
Just think about it: no one would expect from the waiters to be actual performers and be able to pull off such an incredible act.
The show ends with the guests waving napkins in the air and cheering.
Why is this act so successful?
The concept is created so that it adds various elements to the show, such as humor, spontaneity, interaction with the audience.
