  Corporate Shows
  Need adult or children's corporate entertainment? - JOE CAN HELP (ask about the bilingual version of Joe's show).

Whether it s entertainment for a big convention, a sales meeting, trade show, holiday party for adults children or a picnic, Joe Gandelman & Friends will give you a show CRAMMED with BIG laughs, music (sometimes song parodies) and hilarious audience interaction.

SHOWS: All shows feature lots of characters -- and your company can customize Joe s corporate show. Since he has a BIG cast of characters, he uses members of his "cast" to fit your company s show. Each wooden or non-wooden character has a carefully developed personality and comedy bit. Each show is PACKED with laughs and features Joe s famous volunteer ventriloquism lip sync as the zany smash finale.

In the lip sync, he gets several volunteers (or names provided in advance) who open their mouths when he taps their shoulders...and voices magically come out (from Joe to them). They then must don crazy wigs and lip sync a "classic" rock song to Joe s voices. It ALWAYS brings the house down.

All corporate shows feature Joe s popular standard customization at no extra cost. This basic customization, developed over many years by Joe for his show and the way he has constructed his comedy routines and character roster, lets you provide inside jokes and information that he inserts at key points in the show. Audience members think it s a show largely written for your group!

The basic customization is highly effective. More extensive customization is also available at an additional cost.

Joe will also do several minutes of STANDUP COMEDY without his characters either at the very beginning or towards the end of each corporate show. The emphasis is on topical jokes and jokes relating to your industry but there are other jokes, too.

Need to roast a sales rep, new supervisor, or sales awards winner? Joe will do a comedy roast without his characters -- again using information you supply to create a screeching, funny but good natured script roasting your guest of honor. If you re doing a roast, too, Joe basically gives you two entertainers in one...but this time without the "dummies!"

WALK-AROUND/STROLLING HUMOR: A BIG cast of state-of-the-art wooden and non-wooden puppets, distinctive character personalities and years of experience have made Joe s walk-around legendary.

He "switches off" using various state-of-the-art characters during your scheduled time so your guests see him walking through with several of his zany characters. He stays long enough to get a laugh or two, then moves on. And when they see him again he has another one. They are almost always amazed -- and laughing! He has done acclaimed walk-around "gigs" at huge corporate events in cities such as Long Beach, CA, and at big fairs in states such as Vermont.

Just a FEW of his madcap characters include: a green Martian with spinning antenna, wisecracking kid John Raven (who sticks out his tongue and wiggles his ears), a surly bulldog, nervous turkey, dorky long-nosed Norbert, old man Mr. Jackson and the genie head-in-the-box. You can even provide him with info about (and a photo of) a guest and Joe will direct a customized zinger his/her way-- always good for a huge laugh!
