Are you planning an annual conference, holiday meeting or Christmas party? Would you like to have the best event ever? Live holiday party entertainment may be just what you need to create a memorable experience that people will talk about all year. Here are a few ideas and tips to get you started...
When shopping for corporate event comedy (which may include stand-up comedians, humorous speakers, jugglers and magicians), it's important to hire an act that's both clean and experienced in front of corporate crowds. You're paying not just for the show, but for peace of mind. After all, if the performer offends your crowd, it makes you look bad!
Corporate performers typically cost more than "club" performers. The reason is that clean, corporate comedy is much harder than a nightclub performance. You have to have an act with wide appeal that won't offend anyone in the audience. There are thousands of club performers across the country, but only a handful that can do a clean, corporate show. You're not just paying for the jokes they tell -- you're paying for the jokes they don't tell.
If the event is dinner and a show, then it's just a matter of working with your entertainment advisor to choose a comedian, juggler or magician. You'll need a stage or similar performing area and amplified sound (which the performer or venue can often provide). A show lasting between 30 and 60 minutes is often best, as guests start to become restless after that time.

-Show takes place face-to-face
Strolling entertainment (also known as roving, roaming or close-up entertainment) is ideal for warming up a crowd before a show, or for entertaining mingling guests at a cocktail hour or trade show. This type of show can usually be booked by itself or as an add-on to many entertainer's stage shows. People love roving entertainment because the show takes place right before their eyes, and sometimes even in their own hands!
Typically, magicians or jugglers charge for roving by the hour. The amount of time you'll need depends on the crowd you expect. For example, if there's set crowd of 100 people, then one hour of strolling entertainment is usually enough to go table-to-table and entertain everyone. If it's a floating event where people stream in and out then you can have the performer for as long as you like!

Music is appropriate for almost all events, and is typically a first consideration for entertainment. Music can help to reinforce the theme of your event or establish a mood. To narrow down your list of entertainment options, decide if you're looking for a "show" or just "background" music. Furthermore, if you want a show, do you want or expect people to dance? Answers to these questions will help lead you to the perfect musical accessory for your event.

You often pay many times more for the meal than for the entertainer (on a per person basis), when in fact the evening's program is probably far more important than the meal. Consider the true value-per-person-attending when deciding on your entertainment investment.
