Are you in charge of selecting the entertainment for this year’s event? Are you looking for a Master of Ceremonies to keep things moving smoothly or 10-90 minutes of top stand-up comedy entertainment? The right corporate comedian should be able to handle both. Here are six reasons why you should hire a comedian for work events.
1. Develop Stronger Rapport Between Workers
Hearty group laughter is good for the soul and helps foster good working relationships. Teams that laugh together are more cohesive and, as a result, tend to communicate better, as well.
Laughter provides more than just immediate benefits; it can contribute to improved relationships between co-workers or at least break the ice to create new connections.
2. Boost Morale
Did you know laughing or finding anything humorous is actually a strong stress reliever? Laughter and humor doesn’t only help your personal work performance, it improves overall company morale and can reduce turnover rates within. If everyone in the office is happy and feels like they are connecting with one another, work is more likely to be completed with passion, enthusiasm, and a better work ethic in general.
3. Stress Relief
Laughing is good for the soul and sometimes having a good laugh on the job is a great way to control stress at work. The happier your staff is, the more effective they work together professionally. Laughter is a proven way to reduce stress, so why not provide corporate entertainment that brings laughter and joy to your employees and associates.
4. Create Excitement
Comedians have great potential to uplift the energy and excitement levels of your guests, as they keep on interacting with the audience during the show. One on one interaction with the audience during an entertainment show is always believed to be highly important and comedians are too good at following this tactic so that audience can be kept excited and entertained.
5. Brings Folks Together
Laughter gives people something in common to talk about and relate to each other about.
If a comedian is performing for one group and sees another group listening, (s)he can bring them in, ask their names, and introduce them to the group. It’s a nice, warm soft introduction and it happens without any of your guests needing to approach strangers in a forced way.
6. Team Building
Hiring a comedian for your corporate event allows all team members to get involved and have fun. Instead of sitting around listening to a speaker tries to motivate your team, have a comedian come in to keep everyone in stitches.
