11 Not-Boring Corporate Event Entertainment Ideas

By Megan Price

Corporate events usually mean one thing: people want to cut loose! And they expect to be entertained. If it’s up to you to plan a corporate event, you could be feeling a little overwhelmed. Besides booking the bartenders, you may be looking for other corporate event entertainment, and we have 11 ideas to help!

1. Hypnotist

Watching their co-workers frantically look for their belly button or bark like a dog is guaranteed to keep your guests entertained! Professional hypnotists know how to work with the crowd and choose the best participants for the show. Setup is usually very simple and just requires a few chairs and a microphone.

2. Game Show

Who doesn’t love winning? Interactive game shows like “The Price is Right” or “Wheel of Fortune” can be set up almost anywhere! Whether you have a large convention hall or a small meeting room, your guests are sure to love being contestants on a mobile game show.

3. Corporate Comedian

Everyone loves to laugh, so a corporate comedian is great for your crowd! They know the material that will really hit a professional’s funny bone. Whether they’re talking about junky copiers or the person stealing lunches from the break room, corporate comedians are the perfect corporate event entertainment.

4. Roast Master

If your event includes a close-knit group, roasting one of your administrators can be tons of fun! A professional Roast Master can write tailored material to poke friendly fun at the boss. They’ll often ask for input from the organization, so get your inside jokes ready! (Roast Masters are great for retirement parties, too!)

5. Celebrity Impersonators

In the world of pop culture, there’s always something interesting going on. Invite a celebrity impersonator to add some “U.S. Weekly” drama to your corporate event entertainment! Celebrity impersonators can pose for photos, mingle with the crowd, or even sign autographs. Find lookalikes for Oprah, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Donald Trump, and more!

7. Cover Band

Cover bands are a staple in corporate event entertainment and will please any crowd! You know your audience better than anyone, so which era of music would they enjoy? An ’80s hair band? A ’20s swing band? Booking a cover band guarantees that they’ll be playing songs that your guests can sing and dance to!

8. Circus Entertainment

Firebreathers, acrobats, aerialists… all of these circus entertainment acts are perfect for corporate events. Especially for those who want to take their corporate event entertainment to the next level! These shows can be tailored to accommodate the crowd size and time allotment if needed. Make sure you have plenty of room for these entertainers, though!

9. Casino Party

Throwing a party for a gambling crowd? Flying to Las Vegas would be amazing, but casino rentals are the next best thing! With professional dealers, Vegas-style games, poker tables, and more, casino rental companies provide everything you need. Add some Vegas showgirls for photo ops and now it’s a party!

10. Dueling Pianos

Having one rowdy, key-banging, soulful singing pianist at your party sounds like a great time! What about two? Dueling piano shows can play just about any request that your guests have and they do it with flair. Their high energy and musical talent keeps your event rocking all night long!

Improv is a comedic skill like no other and ensures that your event will be completely unique. Using cues from the crowd, a comedy improv show can turn everyday people, places, and things into hilarious scenarios. Comedy improv shows are an unexpected surprise when it comes to corporate event entertainment!
