Have your very own Awards Show gala hosted by a professional stand-up comedian. You'll choose from our exclusive list containing over 100 humorous awards. We'll give you a night of fun that your staff will talk about for weeks to come!
Just like a real Awards show, the event begins with the host performing an opening stand-up comedy routine. Then the Awards show portion begins. As the winners come up to claim the Awards, the comedian will prompt them for a little back story and “acceptance speech”. The Awards are only as good as the winners, so pick the biggest “characters” from your group.
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.
This is all good-natured fun. The show is not meant to embarrass -- only to entertain!
Perfect for: employee awards programs, office parties, teacher banquets, volunteer recognition, staff appreciation, family reunions, church functions, or any event that could use an interactive and fun presentation!
Larry Weaver is a professional comedian and creator of Funny Awards. For over 20 years, Larry has delighted audiences across America with a mix of down-home tales and clean, original comedy. He has performed over 1,000 shows at comedy clubs, colleges and corporate events in 36 states, and has shared the stage with entertainment legends Chris Rock, Ray Romano, Faith Hill, "Weird Al" Yankovic, and many others. You may have heard him on Blue Collar Radio on XM Radio or the John Boy and Billy Big Show.
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.
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.
Do we need a huge stage and video screen?
No, the presentation can be 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.
"The material used was a perfect fit for our office environment. The Funny Awards part of the performance went over with bang. The employees talked about it all afternoon.

Great job." – Teresa J Bell, Vice President of Human Resources, ACS Benefit Service Inc Annual Appreciation and Awards Luncheon

We especially enjoyed the funny employee awards. Larry is a true professional!" – Gabi Jacob, Corporate Network Services holiday party
"Larry Weaver provided an excellent funny awards program for our Teacher Appreciation Banquet. He brought the house down.

He was AWESOME!" – Annette Sessoms, Johnson Primary School teacher appreciation
