22 Aug 4 Tips For Hiring A Comedian For A Private Event
Private events can vary greatly in their style, size, and ambiance. Likewise, the comedy show could be great if you hire the right person, but it could be awkward if you do not know what you are doing. To help you hire the right private event comedian, follow our guide and by the end, you will know exactly what to look for in a comedian for your private event.
1) Check The Material
The content is everything. This is what will make the audience laugh. As we say at The Comedian Company it’s all about the funny. You have to be able to make the audience laugh and relate to the group. Check out what kind of comedic antics and material they plan to use for the event you have planned to ensure that it is age-friendly, setting appropriate, and most importantly… funny. We have comedian videos to preview before you book a comedian.
2) Organize The Timing
Not just how long the act lasts matters but when during your event you request them to perform can make a big difference. Considering that the comedian has probably done this a million times with different timing, explain to them what your event is all about and what the schedule is so they can offer you suggestions as to when to input the comedy.
3) Ask Them Questions
The more you ask the more you will know. Here are a few suggestions:
- Why do you perform comedy shows?
- Can you personalize your material?
- When was the last time you performed for this kind of audience?
- What age rating is your comedy?
- What comedian would you most like to be like?
- How long have you been doing comedy?
4) Tell Them What You Need
Lastly, do not forget to be specific with your needs. If you need them to bring equipment or to do something, in particular, make sure to let them know in advance.
