The Water Coolers
Hilarious comedy about work.
Are you looking to hire The Water Coolers? For nearly 15 years, THE WATER COOLERS have entertained audiences around the world, as far reaching as Singapore and Australia, with their high energy, uncommonly funny, honest take on work and life. Smart phones, conference calls, kids, co-workers, and travel are just a few of the topics that this group of top talent turns into hilarious sketch comedy and song. They are one of the few acts to win Event Solutions magazine’s Spotlight Awards for Entertainment of the Year multiple times.
Universally hilarious entertainment about work
Award-winning songs and sketch comedy about work direct from NYC — think annoying co-workers, the panic of an accidentally sent email, never-ending meetings, unnatural attachment to your smartphone — whether it’s after dinner entertainment, pop-up performances throughout the day, or a big kick off, the material kills and the audience connects.
Keynote: Getting to Great Performance
We explore the challenges to top performance through absolutely rocking comic songs and deliver practical takeaways that draw on our experiences competing in the toughest live-entertainment market in the country. It all comes in the very human, authentic voices of professionals on the line every day.
The Water Coolers – Virtual Program Entertainment
The Water Coolers provide a number of great options for virtual shows. Their material can be used in a variety of ways from a 15-minute opening to interstitials throughout the day to a complete Keynote. We’ve been cranking on the virtual scene to create pre-recorded or interactive shows to fit your event. And, as always, we can can customize.

Because these are real-time, they can include an interactive component

- VIRTUAL AWARDS SHOW
We can create videos with an opening number, a closing number, and five one-minute comedy tributes to top honorees.
UNTIL WE CAN BE TOGETHER
- LIVE STREAMING FROM PERFORMERS’ HOMES
Three performers would appear from their respective homes, singing songs from our act “live.” Using the conference platform, one of the cast members would start the segment with a quick quiz or poll for the audience related to the song – something designed to set up the song that followed –and then we’d see all 3 actors in separate windows delivering the number. (Depending on what the production / technology platform can provide, we may want to live stream the interactive component and switch to tape for the song, but it would appear live to the audience – in the same way that many of these “live” concerts on the internet right now combine live and taped performance, but appear completely live, e.g. One World: Together at Home. It’s a good combination of live and safety.)
