During a tough economic downturn, it's important to manage your stress and get relief from anger, frustration, depression and anxiety. People should take time to learn how to deal with stress at work & in all areas of their life. The Co-Workers’ Challenge with Scotty Gunther is a mix of clean comedy, motivation speaking, team building exercises, humor & inspiration. The Co-workers’ Challenge is an important tool to help boost office morale and manage stress in the workplace. The Co-Workers’ Challenge is great for company meetings and conferences and events because laughter helps reduce stress. This is important for employee morale, especially with high unemployment, foreclosures, bankruptcies & divorce.

As a comedian, an award winning radio host, author and personal agitator Scotty Gunther, spent almost 20 years purposely getting under people’s skin, evoking emotions, and in most cases CAUSING them stress. Scotty realized that if he could cause people stress so efficiently, then there is nobody better to reduce it! By encouraging people to lighten up and to “find the funny” in the absurdities of life and office relationships, The Co-workers’ Challenge with Scotty Gunther helps reduce stress in the workplace through positive interaction and laughter!

(Frequently Asked Questions)

Q. Will this show fit my corporate event or Business meeting?

A.YES! It doesn't matter if you are looking for a corporate icebreaker, something motivational, a team building exercise, a keynote speaker or just entertainment to make your guests laugh and have a great time! The Co-Workers’ Challenge will fit the bill. Thanks to the overwhelming success of The Couples’ Challenge, we're bringing this versatile, tested, and proven successful show created and tailored for the "business world" to your corporate event anywhere in the country. This show is designed especially for conventions, promotions, corporate events, business meetings, and corporate holiday parties.

Q.Most companies are making budget cuts, why should we spend money on outside entertainment for our event?

A. With the economy in bad shape, workplace budget cuts, and the everyday real threat of your employees losing their jobs, one of a manager's most important jobs is to keep spirits up in the workplace. With stress levels in organizations and companies at an all-time high, this isn't always easy to do. The Co-Workers’ Challenge is that necessary "escape" that employees need to laugh, relax, recharge and focus on being productive in the future. It's a small price to pay to instantly reduce office stress and boost employee morale.

Q. Can we do the Co-Workers' Challenge with spouses?

A. YES. If this is a event/ Holiday party where spouses are in attendance, we can do the highly successful "Couples' Challenge "show.

Q. Do we need a lot of room? Is there a large set up?

A. No, this fits any size room! There is minimum set up, You just need a few chairs and we bring the rest.

Q. What if my event doesn't consist of actual couples or co-workers?

A. The great thing about The Co-Workers’ Challenge is that this show can be tailored to your event. It doesn't matter if you are a group of Chiropractors, Pet Groomers, Vacuum cleaner salesmen, Pizza makers, Civil Defense contractors, or any other profession or group! This show will make everyone laugh!! The participants will have fun, as well as entertaining the rest of the audience. There is something for everyone! We just need some teams made up of two people, which is easily done because they just have to know "a little" about someone else. (It's funnier when they don't know much!) The two people on each team don't need to know the other teams. Just each other! (Its better when they don't.) This is why The Co-Workers’ Challenge show is great for Chamber of Commerce events, conferences and any event with a large diverse group of people. We can team up people from the same business, area, or profession. It's the perfect icebreaker, because teams, business and individuals are showcased during the show. Everyone is entertained and it brings your guests closer. (Which is the whole purpose of having an event!)

Q. How far will you travel?

A. No show is too far. We will travel anywhere! Keep in Mind if you are 1600 miles away, we will have to charge you more than a "rock bottom, bargain-basement" entertainer would cost. Remember, just because it appears that our home city might be far from your event, don't let location fool you! The Co-Workers’ Challenge is equipped to travel to your event for less then you might expect. Send us a request for a quote before you decide you can't afford the show, because there's a pretty good chance that you do have the resources to bring The Co-Workers’ Challenge to your event! Just contact us for a quote. We are always reasonable and won't charge hidden fees. Because we love to entertain, we will NEVER attach a ridiculous rider asking for socks and "only the red" M&Ms.

Q. We were looking to hire a comedian or a magician, is this a better option?

A. Yes, this show is better than just a comedian because it becomes about your guests. We have an award-winning comedian, author and radio personality hosting the show, so there are a ton of jokes and bits while your guests become stars of this show and provide "one of a kind" content. It's just more interactive and exciting than a comedian standing on stage talking about himself, or a magician doing silly magic tricks people have seen a million times! The Co-Workers’ Challenge is compelling, unique, and also builds teamwork and boosts office morale.

Q. What types of events are a perfect fit for The Co-Workers’ Challenge?

A. The Co-Workers’ Challenge has many applications. Because the show is "laugh out loud" funny, it can be used a main stage entertainment at your convention, meeting, or Holiday party. Because it’s upbeat, with a positive message, and can be tailored to fit your company’s message and mission statement, it can be used as a motivational or keynote speaker. And because it’s fun and can used for small groups of people, The Co-Workers’ Challenge is perfect for your next business meeting or retreat as a team building exercise or as a much needed break from a long day of sitting in seminars. The Co-Workers’ Challenge is the most versatile form of business/corporate entertainment available today!

Scotty has performed his Co-Workers’ Challenge show for companies such as Dell, T-Mobile, Kohl’s, Valspar, Nexstar Network, The United Way, and many more!

Q. Is The Co-Workers’ Challenge some type of fitness or sports challenge?

A. Ha-ha, NO! Your guests will sit in chairs, answer questions, laugh, and are not required to do a single push or pull up!

Q. Can the questions in The Co-Workers' Challenge be tailored to fit our event?

A. Yes!! And they will be, depending on the type of business you are. That's why The Co-Workers' Challenge is perfect for business meetings, corporate functions, holiday parties or any event.

Q. Who provides the prizes?

A. We can bring some prizes, but we encourage event planers to get sponsors to provide unique prizes. Our host can also thank sponsors during the show.

Q. Can't I just be uncreative, rip this idea off, and do this myself?

A. No!The Couples' Challenge and The Co-Workers' Challenge are copyrighted property, and just because you try to steal the idea, it's not going to be the same! It's NOT the concept; it's the host, Scotty Gunther that makes this show one of the most sought after corporate comedy entertainment shows in North America. This show is based on almost 20 years of live entertainment experience. You can steal Jeff Gordon's racecar... but you are NOT going to win a NASCAR race. (Chances are, you will just crash it into the wall!)

Dear Scotty,
Thank you so much for performing The Couples' Challenge our wedding.  Your performance was absolutely amazing and everyone was so entertained by your show!
Everyone raved about the show the entire night after you left.  My mom was very proud of the show because she kept getting a lot of compliments on it.  Even though it was MY idea, she basked in the spotlight over it all evening.  She's such a glory-hog!   Let me tell you, everyone assumed you cost a fortune to book and my mom let them keep thinking this.  (And that's why they think she was the one to book you).  She told everyone, "Yes, its my only daughter so I went all-out for her wedding". 
The Couples Challenge was so much fun and it really made my reception unique and memorable.  Everyone who attended will surely remember the experience for the rest of their lives...I know I will too!
Thank you so much!  We will never forget you and we will be fans of your forever!
