Funny Awards Show Host
Just like a real Awards show, the event begins with the host performing an opening stand-up comedy routine. You'll get clean jokes appropriate for your company or organization.
The fun kicks into an even higher gear as the Awards show portion begins. Watch the hilarity unfold as your host hands out funny awards that will have your whole audience laughing. Recognize that member who takes the last cup of coffee, is always losing paperwork, or can never be found.
The comedian will present the awards with customized material written just for your group and audience members. Pre-select the biggest "characters" from your group for an unforgettable presentation.
This is all good-natured fun. The show is not meant to embarrass -- only to entertain!
Perfect for: employee awards programs, holiday office parties, teacher banquets, volunteer recognition, staff appreciation, family reunions, church functions, or any event that could use an interactive and fun presentation!

Frequently Asked Questions
How many awards should we give out?
We've found that +/- 15 awards works well.
How long does the presentation last?
Larry typically starts the show with 20-30 minutes of stand-up comedy. A good rule of thumb is the awards take about 1 minute each. Larry has done presentations lasting anywhere from 20-60 minutes.
I'm concerned that some audience members might be offended?
Don't worry! We have dozens of "Job Well Done" awards to choose from. Larry can take something as simple as "Most Punctual" or "Best Dressed" and still make it funny! Or just don't give the uptight people awards. Either way, we'll make sure everyone has fun without feeling uncomfortable.
Do we need a stage and video screen?
No, you are free to make the awards presentation as modest or as grand as you'd like to make it. Larry has done many presentations to small groups with no sound system. Other groups incorporate video screens with a PowerPoint presentation featuring photos of the winners. Others still have had a DJ play music during the show. This is a show that works for any size group in any environment.
