When it comes to surprise corporate party ideas, the classic “music and drinks” concept may seem a bit outdated. You need something more.

Something your guests will have a lot of fun remembering when eating lunch with their friends and colleagues.

Or something that will grab the chair from under them when they’re sitting down for drinks. Okay, maybe this wasn’t the best comparison.

Still, your party needs something truly spectacular. We’ve carefully selected a few ideas from our roster of entertainers to make your job easier. Here they are, in no particular order.

1. When You Need Surprise Corporate Party Ideas – The String Angels

Elegant galas and conferences are probably the hardest to choose entertainment for.

You don’t want to be too predictable and bring in a classical music quartet. But you also don’t want to end up on the other end of the spectrum and hire an electronic music DJ.

Why not combine the modern with the classical  and get the best of both worlds? You can do so by booking The String Angels, for instance.

Surprise Corporate Party Ideas that No One Will See Coming

They’ve played numerous shows all around the world, mesmerizing people with their diverse repertoire.

Struggling to find surprise corporate party ideas to impress your guests? Try this electrifying trio. In fact, they can become a quintet if this format suits your event better. 

If they’re not what you had in mind, maybe the next entertainer will have a better chance at guessing what that is!

2. Mind Reader and Stand-Up Comedian Eric Dittelman

We know what you’re thinking: “A mind reader? How is that a good fit for a corporate event?” How do we know? Eric found out and told us. Okay, maybe he didn’t.

Mr. Dittelman here was a semifinalist on America’s Got Talent. He managed to “spook” Sharon Osbourne with his mind-reading skills.

Watch the moment in this next video. You will like the expression on her face.

Remember the chair comparison from the beginning? Your guests will have the same reaction when Eric reads their minds.

How many of your surprise corporate party ideas included a mind reader until now? 

None? You’ve been missing out.

You’ll be happy to know Mr. Dittelman is recommended by Entertainment WeeklyRolling Stone, and The National Enquirer.

Can’t imagine him performing at your next event? Don’t worry, we have more options. Head over to the next entertainer.

3. One-Man Show Bob Stromberg

You might know Mr. Stromberg from his hit production “That Wonder Boy.” He won the following awards for it:

  • Best One-Man Show
  • Best Direction
  • Backstage Magazine’s Audience Favorite

But his awards are not all that will interest your guests, we’re sure. For that, we have the following video of him and a rather confused audience member.

Would you have guessed it was a rehearsal for a shadow puppet routine? Neither will your guests.

What Bob does to win crowds over is his way of engaging with them. His routines usually involve stories from everyday life, improved with his own humorous twist.

But the way he paints a picture with words reminds us of a grandfather talking to his grandchildren. If that grandfather were a shadow puppeteer and an accomplished comedian at the same time, that is.

Want to wow your guests at the next corporate party? Here’s your chance! The performers listed in this article are always on the road, bringing quality entertainment to corporate parties and more.
