We’re just going to say it: if you’re planning an event, you should definitely book entertainment. Why? Because doing so will elevate your get-together and ensure it’s an amazing success. Don’t believe us? Keep reading…
In this article, we explain the main three benefits of event entertainment and how you can enjoy all of them by working with Funny Business Agency.
Let’s get started!
1. Audience Engagement
“The audience was in stitches the entire time and kept commenting throughout how entertaining/relevant Dwayne was in his performance.” – Brooke Pothast, ServiceNow
It doesn’t matter if you’re hosting an event for your customers, your employees, or someone else. The key to a great get-together is engagement.
If you can’t engage your crowd, they’ll start checking their watches, playing with their phones—they might even leave your event early. No Bueno.
One of the benefits of event entertainment is a highly engaged audience. Book a comedian, magician, or game show host and your guests won’t be able to tear their eyes away from the stage.
Don’t worry, booking top entertainers is a breeze when you partner with Funny Business. We work with the best performers and can hire them for your next shindig at a rate you can afford.
“Working with Funny Business was easy because their team is so responsive. They provided me with a list of options that fit my audience and budget. I ended up with a great comedy show at my event”
– Meghan Scott, Warby Parker
2. Employee Satisfaction
“We had a fatigued team working remotely, and FBA’s talent was able to spark a lot of joy and laughter for us. We’re hearing amazing feedback from the team about the event.” – Stefanie Groner, Change Healthcare
Hosting an employee appreciation event? Good idea! 77% of employees say they’d work harder if they were recognized for their efforts.
Just make sure you book a top-level entertainer when planning this kind of event. Doing so will make your team feel extra valued. It will also give them something to talk about long after the event concludes, which will help improve company culture.
They’ll be like, “Remember that one joke…” Or, “Man, that magician was insane! How did he do that?”
When employees feel valued and are part of a thriving culture, they’ll stick around for longer, which is good for your company’s bottom line. Turnover is expensive. Like, WAY more expensive than hiring someone to entertain your employees during an event.
This is especially true when you work with Funny Business!
“Funny Business Agency was so great to work with! We used Trivia with Budds for our closing virtual event and our attendees had a BLAST! They all commented asking if we could have Ryan join us in-person next year.” – Erin DeFouw, SmithBucklin
3. Flexible Arrangements
“FBA was wonderful to work with, they respond quickly, communicate efficiently and make you feel completely taken care of at all times. Learning to adapt to virtual team building is an adjustment for all of us, they offer an amazing array of services and made it easy for me to set up a super fun virtual event for my team. Highly recommend this company! – Amy Omas, The Home Depot
One of the other main benefits of event entertainment is the fact that most performers are flexible.
Do you want to host a live, in-person gathering? No problem. What about a fully remote shindig? That’s a possibility, too. Most of the entertainers that Funny Business works with are open to hybrid events as well, i.e. events that have live, in-person audiences and remote crowds.
No matter what kind of gathering you have in mind, there’s a professional entertainer who’s ready and willing to make it better. And Funny Business can connect you to them.
“Funny Business went above and beyond to accommodate my corporate event request. We had some out-of-the norm stipulations due to corporate policy which they were able to work with us on. Alicia was super attentive to my calls and emails – leaving no questions unanswered. They set us up with a hilarious trivia host who was perfectly suited to our group. I would highly recommend Funny Business to anyone looking to host virtual entertainment!” – JP Morgan Chase

“The Funny Business Agency was incredible to work with! They helped send over options of talent to look into as I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted when I initially reached out. We worked together to find a perfect fit.”
– Alice Cox, nCino
Here’s the deal: booking performers on your own is tedious. You have to contact the performer’s agent, hash out a deal, sign contracts—it’s a lot.
Funny Business makes the process easy:
- You tell us about your event
- We suggest the entertainers that fit your vibe and budget.
- You choose a performer and let us work out the deal for you
Working with Funny Business will allow you to focus on other aspects of your get-together, like booking the venue, finding a caterer, and planning amazing content.
