The Water Coolers and Tech Industry Audiences...

Here's our 3-part formula for making an impact with audiences in the technology industry...

  1. 1
    Material that was written with the goal in mind.

    You invest in entertainment 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 business goals: building a bond among attendees, connecting them to the your organization, strengthening loyalty, and making your attendees want to come back.
  2. 2
    Top 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.
  3. 3
    Simply 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 the upcoming "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's a couple of videos that show you some of what we're talking about...

1

Award-winning singing comedy about life and work.


2

The ability to create material for the your specific audience that shows them you get what they're up against out there every day.

A song for retail sales managers, with a special term for people who say they'll return later to buy.

A song for professional event planners.

The Water Coolers were…Super, Excellent, Fabulous, Wonderful, Amazing, Funny, Awesome, Terrific, WOW… these are just a few of the adjectives coming from our sales leaders and their teams.

Stacy Sakellariou 

DIRECTOR OF GLOBAL EVENTS, SUCCESS FACTORS 


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! 

Michelle Shleifer

Seattle Premiere Events (Microsoft Event)


The show you performed at the Hard Rock Hotel was beyond fabulous. You had our 300 guests hysterically laughing. The talk about your performance lasted until the last guests got on the plane. You were such a hit. I sat next to our most important Microsoft VP throughout the performance, and he was so entertained and thrilled that I couldn’t have asked for more.

Here are a few ways our tech industry clients have used us...

Mainstage Comedy

When you simply want your audience to laugh really hard and have a great time...


We deliver universally relatable and uncommonly funny singing comedy about having a job, hand-picking a set list from our constantly updated, award-winning repertoire. Top NYC talent take the stage at your event to send up the relentless and sometimes ridiculous gauntlet we call a work life, making audiences "laugh so hard their cheeks hurt."


Clients include: Microsoft, HP, IBM, Adobe, Sony

General Session Launch

We grab your audience's attention, so you don't have to. Drawing from our repertoire, we put together a short-set of high energy, funny, and over-the-top entertaining numbers to open your general session. 


Then we turn the fully warmed up, focused, and attentive audience over to your first speaker. We can even add quick mainstage performances throughout the day, to keep the energy, focus, and pace humming.


Clients include: Teradata, Success Factors, Help Desk Institute

Awards Shows

Awards shows should leave the winners feeling sky high and the rest of the audience vying to be up there next year, but unfortunately the actual business of giving awards can drag the pace to a crawl and leave everyone except the 8 winners wanting to stick a fork in their eyes. Ever been to one of those? 


That's why we put together our awards show packages that, depending on your needs, can combine our award-winning comedy about work with customized tributes and MC work to create a truly amazing event.


Clients include: Nokia, Cisco, AT&T, Honeywell

We'd love to work together. Let's make it happen!
