For the past six years, Funny Business Agency has had the privilege of working with local Grand Rapids radio station 101.3 ‘The Brew’ to bring in national comedians for their annual craft beer festival, The BrewHaHa, at The Delta Plex Arena.
I hate small talk. Always have, probably always will. I know what the weather is like, I was just outside too. I like getting to the good stuff. I want to know what you are passionate about, what gets you out of bed every day, and whether or not you’re sympathetic with the Trix Rabbit […]
Everyone likes to laugh. I mean, laughter generally means happiness and some amount of joy, right? But then again, all entertainment (assuming it is actually entertaining) lifts the spirits to some extent. So why should you hire a comedian for your corporate event?
