For the past 17 seasons, Chris’ energetic, corporate comedy show has been popular among event planners looking to bring unique and exciting entertainment to their employees and guests at their Christmas parties / holiday banquets. His past corporate clients have included: Honeywell, Ford, DuPont, Snap-On Tools, Anthem Healthcare, Chevron, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Jack Link’s Snack Foods, Con-Agra Foods, and literally hundreds more.
Testimonials from past clients show that Chris’ ability to entertain with comedy that is “clean” and appropriate for a company event and the getting the audience involved are reasons they chose Chris’ show:
From Chris at Adaptec – Milpitas, CA – “Chris entertained Adaptec employees during our annual holiday party this year. His show is a true mix of surprise, quick wit, and dynamic energy that reached everyone in the room. Clean comedy with big laughs what we wanted and Chris delivered.”
From Mary at Quincy Medical Group in Quincy, IL – “Not only did we receive compliments on the entertainment at our Christmas party, but during the following two weeks, our department was flooded with compliments on the entertainment. Even the physicians Chris had on stage were talking about the fun they had. Work can get to be pretty serious so to have fun, clean entertainment where everyone laughed and had a great time was priceless.”
Chris’ many years of experience has allowed him to easily adjust his show to fit almost any size venue. In a given year, the size of the audiences Chris performs for may range from 25 people in the meeting room of company’s corporate headquarters to 400 people in a resort hotel’s ballroom.
In an effort to help make budgeting for employee party entertainment easier, fees quoted for 2017 corporate performances will include the performance fee, airfare, ground transportation and other misc. travel and meal expenses (excluding hotel accommodations). This “all inclusive speaker/entertainer pricing is becoming more popular in the event industry, as it eliminates the hassles and unpredictability of travel expenses that are billed after an event.
Travel arrangements for Chris’ corporate engagements are handled by Chris’ staff, with the exception of hotel accommodations, which are usually requested to be arranged by the client.
