Holiday Party Planning Ideas
A holiday party planner can make the event special for anyone attending an event by booking a funny comedian with a sense of humor that appeals to different groups. When it comes to holiday party planning, it is important to consider what type of entertainment will appeal to a group of employees, friends or family members when putting together a corporate or private holiday party. A talented comedian with an individual talent, such as making shadow puppets can leave guests talking about a holiday party for years to come.
With entertainment being such a crucial element of the festivities, it is the wise party planner who selects from a relatively small group of exceptional performers and artists. There are some performers and artists available who have been on TV shows, appeared in movies, authored books and have also hosted or emceed events with thousands in attendance. They’ve entertained audiences and had the talent and know-how to engage an audience, to make that connection that brings smiles.

After each event, the artist presents the paintings to the companies or individuals who hired her as a memento of the special occasion.

His talents were showcased on America’s Got Talent where he wowed the audience and the judges. For a corporate or a private holiday Christmas party, you cannot go wrong with Bob Stromberg.

The funny hosts the syndicated radio program “The Daren Streblow Comedy Show” and has opened for Weird Al Yankovic.

Comedian Bill Arnold’s unorthodox style of inept, comedy-based magic adds to his likeability factor. For 17 years, the comedian starred in the comical play “Triple Espresso” before venturing out to do standup. These days, he often does corporate and fundraising events, but he has performed in different types of venues all over the country.
A standup comedian, unorthodox magic act or live painter can add to the atmosphere of any holiday event. Nothing will build camaraderie in a group like a shared laugh. Party planners just want to make sure to choose the right type of act to fit with the overall theme and vibe of the party.
