A successful corporate event will require the consideration of a number of factors. From the venue to the food and even the amount of guests to arrive; every aspect requires thorough planning in order to help the overall success of the evening. An often overlooked aspect of corporate events is the entertainment. With a wide range of event planning services at our disposal, it can be easy to allow an external company to run ahead with every aspect of our special event. However, this can often have disastrous results if our guests are not correctly catered for.
When choosing entertainment for your corporate event, you need to ensure that your performer is not only suitable for your event, but that their presence will help to create a fun and happy atmosphere for all involved. In some respects, the entertainment can even be the one aspect that ‘makes’ the evening for some guests.
There are a wide number of entertainers you can choose from for your event, such as magicians and live musical acts. However, over recent years, comedians have grown in popularity for corporate events as a more unique form of entertainment. Not only can a quality comedian provide the level of entertainment you require for your event, but they can help to make the event more memorable for your guests thanks to audience participation and additional aspects of their act such as singing and puppetry. What’s more, should you comedian be well chosen and a hit with the audience, it can also help to cement your reputation as the event planner.
Depending on the purpose of your corporate event, the entertainment may be a crucial part of the night, meaning that it is essential that you hire a comedian who is not only available and within your budget, but also one who is appropriate for the intended audience and willing to cater for your needs. So, whether the occasion is informal or formal, there are a number of considerations you should make when choosing your entertainer.
Being a corporate event, you will need to ensure that your chosen comedian is one who specializes in performing family-friendly comedy. Although there may be some guests who enjoy more extreme comedy, comedy does not need to be crude or offensive in order to be funny. To eliminate any offence caused to your guests, it is important that your comedian either specializes in suitable comedy, or is willing to devise a performance that caters for this requirement. Always arrange to see a preview of their performance before hiring them to be sure of this fact.
The details of their performance are also important. Whereas some comedians perform simple stand-up comedy, many are renowned for combining a number of creative outlets such as singing and props in order to enhance their routine. By identifying what the likes and dislikes of the guests will be, you will be more able to decide which type of performance will suit your corporate event best.
