Here’s the thing: there are comics who might make you laugh hysterically in a dark comedy club after work…
…but they’ll turn you (and more importantly, HR) beet red during a work call.
(Have you ever seen Bob Saget’s stand up? Yup. It is “capital R” Raunchy. No traces of family man Danny Tanner here.)
So, choosing the wrong comic can really backfire, especially if the comic is divisive (getting into politics, religion) or just plain inappropriate for the workplace!
Now, I don’t mean to scare you.
My point is that we all love to laugh, and if you want to host a virtual comedy show for a corporate team, it’s important to find a comic who is:
- Inclusive of all
- Family-friendly (your team may have kids within earshot of the call)
- And steers clear of anything racy, off-color, or otherwise too edgy for a corporate setting
That’s not asking too much, right?
Well…this is harder than it sounds!
Comics who aren’t used to to the corporate world have wildly different standards of what’s “appropriate.”
