What do the best corporate comedians have in common?
If you answered “They are funny!”, you are only partially right. Funny is a given. Comedians should be funny. Otherwise they are only – ians.
Corporate comedy requires a unique style. Most comedians learn their trade at open mics in comedy clubs. In the comedy club setting, foul language and shock humor sometimes rule the night. That doesn’t play at a corporate event.
