Have Your Own Awards Show Hosted by Comedian Larry Weaver!

Larry Weaver is a professional comedian and creator of Funny Awards. For over 25 years, he has delighted audiences with a mix of down-home humorous tales and clean, original comedy.

Larry has performed thousands of shows at comedy clubs, colleges and corporate events, and has shared the stage with entertainment legends Chris Rock, Ray Romano, Faith Hill, "Weird Al" Yankovic, and many others.

Now you can hire Larry to host your very own Awards Show gala.

Watch the hilarity unfold as Larry 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. As the winners come up to claim the Awards, Larry 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.

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!
