When looking for entertainment for your next party or corporate event, you may be overwhelmed by the options presented to you. Every type of performer is available if you look hard enough, and you may be wondering which would suit your particular function the best, ensuring everyone in the group will have an enjoyable time. Consider the art of observational comedy; the heart of many stand-up comic’s routines, this style focuses on poking fun at the mundane elements of our lives, touching on aspects or experiences that the entire audience can relate to in a fresh and new way. Not only does everyone love comedy, but people are particularly taken with humor that applies to their everyday life and means something to them. It is sure to be a hit!
The Best Observational Comedy
Taylor provides a unique and eclectic style of joke telling, sometimes with his routine set to music! His ability to pull the specific city and street names dear to his audience makes him instantly relatable, and the pointed discussion of bicyclists in winter is exemplary of the definition of observational comedy.
If you’ve ever raised a child or been in the vicinity of one who has just discovered their ability to communicate with words, you can undoubtedly understand where Daren is coming from in this bit. Who has not been in a grocery store and heard a small child shout while their parents tried everything to quiet them?
There may not be a woman alive who has not been out for an evening on the town when she is approached by the very guy that Henry is describing in this routine. His illustration of the insecurity of some men in social situations reflects the difficulty of dating, which hits close to home for many an audience member.
Possibly the perfect bit for the rapidly approaching wedding season, Thor provides his brand of observational comedy mixed with a dash of physical comedy as well. The result is both hysterical and instantly relatable, a winning combination that is not to be missed by the crowd at any event.
Differences in languages impact our ability to communicate effectively every day, and although it may not reflect on the individual, it can be both frustrating and (in the case of Carlos) endlessly funny. If you’ve ever been in a situation where you could not understand the person you were trying to talk to, you will undoubtedly relate to this routine.
Laughter is something that is loved universally, and observational comedy is one that transcends differences in opinion and lifestyle, one that rings true to all and brings together even the most diverse groups of people. As such, it is the perfect selection for any event you are planning and is sure to leave your guests wanting more.
