The Co-Workers’ Challenge
How well do you think you know the people you work with? We'll find out during The Co-Workers’ Challenge.
The Co-Workers' Challenge is hilarious, quick paced, unique corporate entertainment that combines stand-up comedy with a little bit of "Newlywed Game" and a little bit of the "Match Game." It's a great corporate icebreaker that motivates employees and promotes teamwork. The Co-Workers’ Challenge is also a great escape from the stressful world of business. It's funny, clean, and wildly entertaining. This corporate comedy entertainment show combines stand-up comedy, improvisation, motivation, and crowd participation. Hosted by Scotty Gunther, an award-winning comedian, author, speaker, syndicated radio personality, and the 2008, 2009 and 2010 GIGMASTER's Rising Star award-winner for top emcee in North America.
Up to five teams of co-workers sit on the stage facing away from each other and are asked a series of questions that everyone should know about the people they work with. Teams are asked to write down their answers and if the answers match, points are given. Simple right? WRONG!

This show is designed especially for conventions, promotions, corporate events, business meetings, and corporate holiday parties.
Q.Most companies are making budget cuts, why should we spend money on outside entertainment for our event?
A. With the economy in bad shape, workplace budget cuts, and the everyday real threat of your employees loosing their jobs, one of a manager's most important jobs is to keep spirits up in the workplace. With stress levels in organizations and companies at an all-time high, this isn't always easy to do. The Co-Workers’ Challenge is that necessary "escape" that employees need to laugh, relax, recharge and focus on being productive in the future. It's a small price to pay to instantly reduce office stress and boost employee morale.
Q. Do we need a lot of room? Is there a large set up?
A. No, this fits any size room! There is minimum set up, You just need a few chairs and we bring the rest.
Q. What if my event doesn't consist of actual couples or co-workers?
A. The great thing about The Co-Workers’ Challenge is that this show can be tailored to your event. It doesn't matter if you are a group of Chiropractors, Pet Groomers, Vacuum cleaner salesmen, Pizza makers, Civil Defense contractors, or any other profession or group! This show will make everyone laugh!! The participants will have fun, as well as entertaining the rest of the audience. There is something for everyone! We just need some teams made up of two people, which is easily done because they just have to know "a little" about someone else. (It's funnier when they don't know much!) The two people on each team don't need to know the other teams. Just each other! (Its better when they don't.) This is why The Co-Workers’ Challenge show is great for Chamber of Commerce events, conferences and any event with a large diverse group of people. We can team up people from the same business, area, or profession. It's the perfect icebreaker, because teams, business and individuals are showcased during the show. Everyone is entertained and it brings your guests closer. (Which is the whole purpose of having an event!)
