Greg Schwem

America's Favorite Corporate Funnyman

Called "King of the hill in the world of corporate comedy" by the Chicago Tribune, Greg Schwem's workplace observations will have your audience rolling in the aisles with laughter.

 
Work, Laugh, Repeat

Greg Schwem brings more than 20 years of stand-up comedy experience to an event. His performance takes a hilarious look at today’s work environment and the technology tools we can’t live without. Following shows, audience members often approach him and say, “Thanks, we needed that” or “It’s always nice to laugh at ourselves.” Schwem customizes each presentation through extensive Internet research, a questionnaire, and a follow up conference call with his client. That’s why audience members also say, “You really did your homework.” Besides clean customized humor, audiences hear material about “corporate” topics such as Smart Phone addiction, indecipherable PowerPoint slides, and Greg's love-hate relationship with the American Girl Doll company.

Rock, Roll and Laugh Your Way to the Top

Greg Schwem knows a thing or two about rock and roll.  As a comedian who has opened concerts for stars ranging from Keith Urban, to Celine Dion, to Pat Benatar to (wait for it) KC and the Sunshine Band, Greg has seen how rock and roll is really a business. Like your business. In short?  Every company and employee has "rock star" potential. Greg shows you how to achieve that potential in a presentation that combines hilarious comedy, live concert footage and a musical soundtrack featuring everything from classic rock to country to EDM (electronic dance music for you music neophytes.) Topics include "Why Every Office Needs a Keith Richards," "Are you Team Taylor or Team Kanye?," and "Don't Turn Your Company Into a Country Song." Rock on!

Meeting Emcee/Video Host

A good emcee needs to multitask. He must keep the event moving, be adept at improvisation and work efficiently with all participants onstage. Greg Schwem has hosted everything from a one-hour awards ceremony for 200 BAE Systems engineers to a three-day conference for 6,000 McDonald’s restaurant managers, to a virtual webinar for IBM customers. He is equally at ease chatting with a company CEO live on stage, pronouncing (correctly) the names of awards recipients, or conducting humorous on-camera interviews with meeting attendees.
