Comedians – Which events are they appropriate for?
Entertainment is the by-word for many corporate and other events and parties and humorous entertainment such as is supplied by a comedian is very well-received.
Corporate events vary from parties and dinners and team building events to awards nights and training seminars. But no matter what type of event it is that you have arranged it can be improved with some form of light entertainment to relax people and add a little fun to the serious side of things.
Stand up comedians are growing in popularity for all kinds of corporate events – in fact, some corporate events even use them as the MC.
A comedienne does not necessarily just stand up and make jokes – although that is part of their routine. But they also include in their material important themes and messages to enhance creativity and productivity in your team.
They are also able to edit their material to include mention of pertinent facts about the company that will be much appreciated by the guests.
Female comedians are ideal for many events including corporate events. They are also suited to hen’s nights, birthday parties, anniversary parties and even weddings. They can break the ice in seconds and have your guests in stitches with a few well-chosen words.
A female comedian is also a good choice to book for a class reunion to get things going and ensure that everyone enjoys themselves.
In fact, such a function would be ideal for this kind of entertainment to help break through that first awkwardness as people get to know each other all over again. By hiring a comedian you will find that people will enjoy the night so much more that they will look forward to the next reunion with enthusiasm.
A holiday party needs to really rock and what better way to achieve this than to have a well-chosen comedienne take charge of the proceedings. Whether you book her as MC or just as spot entertainment your party will have twice the fun.
Corporate Entertainment – Tips to hire
Having the right kind of entertainment makes all the difference to corporate events. You can lift your event up several notches by increasing the wow factor with entertainment.
When hiring entertainment for corporate events you need to get it right and be able to wow the audience.
There are many different kinds of corporate events and not all kinds of corporate entertainment would be right for all events. For instance, the kind of entertainment suitable for an event where people are milling around a lot would be different from entertainment at an event where people were sitting down and focussed.
Entertainment hire such as a band, dj or a roving singer would be excellent for the former event, while a comedian or other kind of act or speaker would be needed for something such as after dinner entertainment where people remained seated.
So before you even speak with a booking agent it is always a good idea to clarify in your mind exactly what kind of corporate event it is to be and whereabouts the entertainment will come into it. This is especially true when a corporate event may include a mix of different elements.
For instance you may have teaching sessions followed by dinner or another meal and then entertainment to finish up with. Or your corporate event may be a day or more long with specific spots set aside throughout the day for entertainment to relax and refresh the audience.
So some of the things you need to consider when hiring entertainment are: -
- Is this form of entertainment right for the type of event and timeframe?
- Are there references from satisfied customers that span several years – or at least months?
- Is it possible to see the entertainer in action elsewhere? While many entertainers have DVDs of their act, laugh-track and applause dubbing can make them seem better than they actually are, so do not depend on that.
- Do they offer a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with their performance?
Once you have ascertained the above, you can be relatively sure that the entertainment you choose for your event will be well-received.
Planning a wedding party – tips
There is nothing more exciting and romantic than a wedding and having just the right kind of entertainment is vital.
There are lots of parties associated with a wedding; the hen’s night party, the buck’s night party, parties for the bridal attendants and of course the reception for the wedding to mention just a few. All such events will need some kind of suitable wedding entertainment, but the most important part is the wedding reception.
There are many elements to the wedding reception – cocktails while the photographs are being done, the meal, the dancing, cutting the cake throwing the bouquet and any other traditions that are included. The best way to bring them altogether into a cohesive whole is by employing the services of a wedding dj.
A wedding dj that is experienced and professional will ensure that your wedding reception not only runs according to plan but has that additional wow factor that will make people remember it with delight for many years. For other wedding parties that need hosting you can also use the services of a wedding dj.
There are many choices for your wedding entertainment or wedding receptions and one of the most popular would be wedding bands in Melbourne or other centres. Since weddings are romantic occasions, wedding bands need to also be romantic both in what they play, they types of instruments and how they present themselves.
To find the best wedding band for your taste and occasion you will need to either get referrals from a trusted source, see the band playing somewhere else or ask if they have a DVD you could watch. Find out what type of music they play and if they know the tunes you want to hear at your wedding – or your other wedding parties.
Once you have the entertainment organised that is a big part of the wedding party done with and you will then be able to concentrate on the various other aspects of your wedding party.
