As Charlie Brown and his friends like to sing in a rather melancholy tune, “Christmas time is here!”
The iconic Peanuts tune’s solemn vibes certainly fit 2020. There are twinkling lights everywhere, mall Santas masked up and at a safe distance and Starbucks red and green cups already available – but only through a drive thru. This year’s holiday season is in full swing, albeit in a much different mood than normal.
With the calendar flipping to December it would also soon be tis the season for Secret Santa at the office and the annual corporate Christmas party. But this year you can’t exactly setup a charcuterie, fondue and cooler over at accounting while openly drinking from the flask you usually hide in a desk drawer.
No, this year will be different, so what to do for this year’s office holiday party? How about booking a comedian?
You may think that it is impossible to hire a comedian in this current climate with all the restrictions and rules. It can be virtually! Hireacomedian.com has helped liven up over 500 corporate events and parties, doing so for companies as small as eight employees and as large as Facebook and McDonald’s. They can work with any budget and timeframe.
Many companies have had employees work from home or remotely for a large chunk of the year. What do you think most of them are doing in between dull Zoom calls and sharing spreadsheets? They’re probably streaming their favorite shows off Neflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and the like.
While many opt for reruns or a documentary, one of the most popular choices right now on streaming services is standup comedians. Netflix averages two to three new one-hour standup specials a month and an estimated 75 million watched at least one comedy special last year alone.
The point is, standup comedy has broad appeal. Facebook says that nearly 100 million people are interested in standup comedy based on their profiles. When looking for an easy way to still put on a Christmas party while pleasing everyone – including the boss – picking a corporate comedian can be a real hit.
Hireacomedian.com has plenty of selections specific for a Christmas party and has a wide range of options. Clean acts, Christian comedians and family-friendly shows are available at any price point as well as edgier material that you’d find at most nightclubs across the country – if they were allowed to be open.
So, bring some festive cheer and save Christmas with a comedian! You can leave on the same sweatpants you’ve been wearing for the last six months, but throw on a holiday sweater. These virtual comedians don’t require a two-drink minimum, but if it’s like your usual holiday party, that will probably be accomplished in the first half-hour!
