Tips To Choose A Comedian

If you have organised an event of some kind – whether that is a corporate event, seminar, party or any other kind of event you will nearly always need to provide good entertainment.

One of the best ways to break the ice at an event is through laughter and having a comedienne or comedian could be just the way to go.

Stand up comedians are well-known for their ability to make the audience shake with laughter. That laughter is a unifying force that melds the audience into one as nothing else could.



However, humour does not always travel well and if you choose female comedians who are not suitable it can leave the audience feeling annoyed and unsettled.

It is therefore important to choose the right comedian for your audience.

To do this you need to do several things: -

Define your audience carefully through such factors as demographics, age, culture and interests.

For instance, a church group of seniors would appreciate a different kind of humour from a group of young, single women with no particular church affiliation.

After defining your target group you then need to speak with a booking agency about the best kinds of female comedians to suit.

Booking agents advice is an ideal way to choose the right comedian because they have the best idea of what each person on their books does and the kind of audience who appreciates them best.

You may be able to read a bio of several comedians on the website to help you in your decision and if you can get to hear them perform somewhere else then that would be a good way to judge. However, some comedians will be able to modify their presentation to suit various types of people.

Word of mouth is a good way to choose a comedian so long as the intended audience is similar.

Once you have made your decision using such factors you can rest assured that your event will be a great success.

You may even want to book the same person ready for next time.
