LaughingStock Comedy Company
A Full-Service Funny Business Featuring Experienced Comics Who Have Written and Performed Hundreds of Customized Comedy Shows
When You Want Interactive, Intelligent and Memorable Entertainment for Banquets, Meetings and Company Events...
...We Deliver A Customized Comic Look at Your Culture
LaughingStock is unique because we customize every performance. Prior to the show, we learn everything we can about you. We read your material, interview your people and ask all the right questions. Every business, product, service and organization has a lode of humor. We're experts at digging up the joys and frustrations, foibles and follies, buzzwords and common denominators the audience shares. At show time, we integrate this extensive research with our wit, characters and "improv" experience. Our team of comedy experts spontaneously creates customized comic scenes about your world. The result is a fun and funny show designed especially for your audience.
Fun and Funny, Live Improvisational Comedy
Improvisational comedy shows are made up of fresh, original scenes based on audience input. The audience fills in the details of our distinctive comedy by volunteering a variety of suggestions (emotions, objects, activities, occupations, locations) throughout the performance. Improv is immediate and exciting. The audience is in on the fun as they see their ideas mushroom into comedy mayhem.
Whatever Business You're In, We Think It's Funny... Your Audience Will, Too!
Sales forces and customers, technology developers and end-users, teachers and students, management and administrative support, health care professionals and patients, food scientists and consumers, buyers and suppliers, lawyers and outlaws, funeral directors and...well, let's just say we leave 'em dead in the aisle. We are professionals in business ourselves. Let us discover what's so funny about your business world.
Communicate A Message Through Laughter
Our clients have asked us to host,encourage, reward, motivate, sell, enlighten, thank, congratulate, demonstrate, liven up and entertain. We bring laughter wherever our sponsors require it. We have performed for two people in a conference room, for 2000 in a theater, for two minutes at a sales meeting and every hour for five days at a trade show.
Award-Winning Comedy Writers
We write commercials, industrial videos, sketches and speeches. We call them comical additives. Need a headline? Need help coming up with material for a roast? Need to spiff up a speech? Need a fun angle for a training session? Need a unique concept, a lively script and some very funny actors for a trade show? When our clients want funny, they call us.

"The fact that you 'did your homework' on
the audience and the topics then customized
your performance made all the difference.
It was remarkable how quickly you established
rapport with the attendees...they went from
chuckling (first 60 seconds), to laughing out
loud (second 60 seconds), to guffawing, even
roaring by the end. Truly delightful!"

"I think your humor and comedy approach is
perfect for corporate events because it can
involve so many participants and can be

It's great to work with such pros!"

"In addition to being funny, I think you
should be proud that all of the attendees
left the celebration with a special feeling
about themselves, their jobs and our corporate

"...Union Camp was nervous about the use of
humor at our meeting, but after our pre-meeting
teleconference phone call and review of your
sketches, our comfort level jumped dramatically...
we couldn't have imagined the meeting being a
success without the comedy and your performances."
