Two Questions When Choosing a Corporate Entertainer

attilaThe art of entertaining a large crowd is the specialty of our comedians here at Corporate Entertainers. We boast an incredible line-up of talented entertainers, each of whom add their own unique flavour to an event. But with all the choices available, how can you identify the best type of comedian? These two criteria should help.

MC or Comedy Act?

This is a distinction that can really affect who your ideal candidate would be. If you’re looking for an entertainer to be the focal point of your event, to speak often and to the entire audience, and to convey a consistent message throughout, then a Master of Ceremonies (MC) is what you’re after. Charismatic public speakers, especially those who are non-offensive, are perfect for this role. Well-spoken, experienced satirists like Bob Robertson or affable personalities like Brent Butt are ideal candidates if this is what you’re seeking.

If you want your comedian to add some spice to an event and create wonderful memories for your guests, then a comedy act may the best choice. Impersonators like Clark Robertson, comedic magicians like Perry James, or hypnotists like Attila are able to add a unique dimension, one that will have your audience singing their praises and going home with joyful memories. These acts may not be ideal for addressing issues or conveying a specific message, but their ability to offer pure, compelling entertainment is something that cannot be overstated.

Conservative or Liberal (Well Spoken or Outspoken)?

You must consider your audience foremost when choosing the right entertainer. If your audience is older, conservative-minded, or a diverse group, it is advisable to stick to one of the many crowd-pleasing acts on our roster like those mentioned above.

If you are hosting a young, vibrant, open-minded crowd, then the sky’s your limit. Corporate Entertainers thrives on bringing wholesome acts to diverse events, but we do have many edgy acts who are able to stir the pot a bit if that’s what your audience will respond to. Cultural humour, political satire, racy jokes and audience interaction are all ways to add some flavour and excitement to an event with a liberal audience. If this describes your needs, check out our roster or contact us with the specific type of humour you are looking for. If you need more information or if you have a comedian in mind that isn’t on our list, give us a call (1-800-693-6665) and we’ll do everything we can to make sure you get the entertainer you want!

In the end, it is crucial that you select an entertainer that aligns with the purpose of your function. It seems daunting, but don’t despair! We have presented a full roster on our site that gives you a sense of each comedian’s background and comedic strengths.
