LaughingStock Comedy Company is the funniest company in business today.

For almost 20 years, members of LaughingStock have been sending up America's corporate culture at banquets, association meetings, customer fetes, trade shows and other special events. They have created comedy mayhem live on stage, on audio and video industrials, on CD's and on-line.

LaughingStock's success is a result of extensive background research into every single audience for whom they perform combined with quick-witted comedians taking and using audience suggestions during the performances. LaughingStock's experienced actor/comedians are well schooled in improvisational comedy techniques and - armed with their background research - spontaneously create fun and funny scenes based on the work lives of the audience.

Another key to LaughingStock's success is their ability to roast the job without roasting the person. LaughingStock rarely names names, poking gentle fun at all the other constituencies that get in the way of someone getting their job done: management, customers, regulators, associates and even family. LaughingStock has performed well over 1000 shows for corporate and association special events in the US, Canada and Mexico. Business sectors have included financial and insurance, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, technology and manufacturing, transportation and communications, utilities and government and many, many more.

LaughingStock's comedians come from a variety of backgrounds and educations and have one important thing in common: they all think making people laugh is the best job in the whole world.

TRADE SHOW - A major computer maker drew its best booth response ever with an original trade show script written and performed street theater style by LaughingStock.

WORKSHOP - A national health-insurance company wanted to develop an internal speakers bureau to address the community about health care issues. Our Presentation Skills Workshop gave them real tools and new confidence to succeed.

GAME SHOW - An oil and gas corporation needed an attention getting format to deliver a Customer Focus message to dealers and jobbers. LaughingStock created a fun and informative game show that became the talk of the marketing conference.

MOCUMENTARY - A large software developer looked for a theme to parody its annual customer conference. LaughingStock created a "Soft Copy" news team to uncover offbeat scoops (like the teeny-tiny hotel soap conspiracy), interview attendees entering sessions and cover the final party at the MGM Studios.

WOO - A management-consulting firm wanted to impress a handful of potential new hires. Dinner at an exclusive Chicago restaurant and a send-up of management consultants by LaughingStock made a memorable impression.

FETE - A medical-device manufacturer hosted its customers at an annual banquet and treated these valued clients to a hilarious LaughingStock performance lampooning the end users, the company and the customers themselves.

REWARD - A major shoe brand wrapped up an annual sales conference with a luncheon performance by LaughingStock. "...a chance to laugh at ourselves and make light of the situations that crowd our all-too-serious lives."

THANK - When one regional bank merged with another, 200 jobs became "redundant." LaughingStock's performance at an ice cream social provided catharsis, relieved stress and helped thank these people for their efforts in a difficult conversion.

EXPERTS - A retail-store chain added comic diversion to their semi-annual buyers meeting with a presentation from "Greta", the new accessories buyer: LaughingStock's Lesley Abrams. She amazed and delighted the audience with outlandishly stunning ideas.

SELL - A wood-products company sold their new square-centered round toothpicks to grocery store buyers nationwide with a five minute audio program created by LaughingStock. And the competition has been left picking up the pieces.

LAMPOON - A software company launching a new version sought an entertaining look at their product "through the ages" for their user conference. Five LaughingStock comedians conjured over 50 characters in 16 scenes in a 45-minute live spoof.
