If an audience is checking their cell phones, they're not getting the content no matter how useful it is. The trick is to deliver great content in a way that keeps an audience leaning in -- that's why this keynote has such great impact. Or as sales guru Jeffrey Gitomer says, "The end of laughter is followed by the height of listening."
Audiences are looking for information that will help them perform better and do more. That's what our session was written to deliver. It's accessible, makes sense, and because it's delivered with music, it sticks in their minds helping them to really make of use the content when they get back to "real life."
Events days are PACKED with sessions and information. Sometimes you can just feel the room slowing down. But the information you're there to share is important -- really important. How do you keep people connected? This session is like flipping a switch to energize your event.
Some people are delivering death by PowerPoint and others are entertaining, but really don't deliver any content. In the end, it's about balance. The Water Coolers deliver a truly funny keynote that drops in nuggets of useful content while we've got them focused on us.

What do you get when a comedy writer and a management consultant get married? As it turns out, you get a comedy act about work that's gotten standing ovations around the world for over 15 years. Since 2001, we've been putting together great writing and performing talent to create and deliver something honest and uncommonly funny. Every day we learn something new and every day, we laugh. Most importantly, though, it's working for our clients.
Your audience is busy and we take the value of their time very seriously -- both as individuals and a group -- so when we set out to write a keynote, we wanted to make sure the 4 key takeaways were practical, useful, and really resonated. To be clear, it's definitely a comedy session -- but the content nuggets are real.
“We set out to make people laugh really hard, get that relaxed feeling that comes with laughing, and then give them a few practical things they can use to make life and work better.”
Each cast is pulled from a pool of NYC pros with resumes including top comedy clubs like Igby's, the Improv, the Comic Strip, and the Icehouse as well Broadway's hippest and hottest shows, including Gloria Estefan's "On Your Feet," “Wicked,” “Rock of Ages,” “Jersey Boys,” "Wonderland," Carole King's “Beautiful,” “Chicago,” “Grease,” “Ragtime,” “Hair”, “Pippin”, “In The Heights,” and "The Boy from Oz," with Hugh Jackman.
We can do anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes -- you tell us how long you'd like it to be and we will deliver a session that length.
The Keynote combines some of our award-winning comedy about work with moments where the cast shares specific strategies and tactics about how to deliver great performance.
In our pure entertainment shows, we put together a set list that is designed just to entertain your audience and there is no content delivery integrated into the show.
Both use comedy about something our audience shares to accomplish an event goal.
4 people travel -- we can give you a flat travel buyout that covers everything except hotel rooms. Then you just need to provide hotel rooms for any night we need to be onsite.
We've done it in 2 weeks! But ideally it's more like 6-8 weeks.
In the end, it depends on what you need. If you're looking for big substance, macro trends, or cutting edge research in the slot you want to fill, we're not a good choice. But if your session needs something super engaging that delivers content gems of practical value while energizing the room and focusing the audience, then you can't do better than this keynote.
We get that you're not just investing money, but also time in our performance -- the time of every person in the audience. That's a precious asset for any organization and we take the responsibility to deliver something great very seriously. A little ironic for a comedy act, I know.
