How about something like this to get things going?
- 1Comedy that was created with the goal in mind.
You invest in events for a reason. We get it. That's why, from the beginning, we designed The Water Coolers act to help deliver on some of key event goals: building a bond among attendees, connecting them to the your organization, deepening loyalty, and making your attendees want to come back. But, how do you get your participants focused and ready to go when they might have hit the lobby bar after last night's reception? The Water Coolers' 5-20 minute performances will launch your session with comedy and pyrotechnic singing to wake your audience up and make them lean in with anticipation.
- 2Top notch writing.
Our writing team mixes professional comedy writers with people working in the "real world" to deliver an authentic and funny take on work. The team is headed up by one of the creators of New York's longest running comedy hit ever, "Tony n' Tina's Wedding" whose other comedy credits include numerous appearances on The Conan O'Brien Show, and voicing Peanut on the Cartoon Network's cult hit, "Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law," also starring Stephen Colbert and Gary Cole. You can even commission something written just for your audience -- a special song that reminds them they're in a room filled with "their people," and shows them that you get what they're going through day in and day out.
- 3Simply outstanding performers.
The performing cast is made up 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 "KPOP: The Musical," "Tina: The Tina Turner Musical," Gloria Estefan's "On Your Feet," “Wicked,” “Rock of Ages,” "Jersey Boys," Carole King's "Beautiful," “Chicago,” “Hair,” “Pippin”, “In The Heights,” and "The Boy from Oz," with Hugh Jackman.
And here are a few videos that show you some of what we're talking about...

THE RESULTS ARE IN!
"I just wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU to you and your team for all your hard work at SuccessConnect – Sydney, San Francisco, and London! Even though I saw the act numerous times (each city venue and in rehearsal) it still made me giggle and brought a smile on my face each time! The audience (no matter what city we were in) LOVED it! Thank you for adding that “extra special something” to our opener, it really set the tone for an exciting event – as you saw from the Tweets this act was a hit!

"I would like to send you each a big HIGH FIVE!... The Water Coolers absolutely knocked it out of the park! The cast did an OUTSTANDING job and delighted our audience of over 2,000 attendees from 104 different countries. The material was relevant and relatable to everyone…The final result was SPECTACULAR! My boss texted me during the show and said, “Good call Trisha – they’re fantastic!” (We kicked this one off with a shortened version of our keynote.)

Et tu Brute? This is a green screen video we created for social media -- I don't have performance footage on this one yet. Audiences LOVE it.
