- You Can’t Cancel Laughter

- Rock, Roll and Laugh Your Way to the Top
- Master of Ceremonies
Greg Schwem, “I’m here to make you laugh but, at the end of the day, I want to be your biggest cheerleader too!”
That approach is why the Chicago Tribune recently proclaimed Greg “king of the hill in the growing world of corporate comedy while HuffPost calls Greg, “Your boss’ favorite comedian.”
Indeed, Greg’s comedic take on the 21st century workplace and work/life balance has landed him on SIRIUS Radio, Comedy Central and the cover of Exceptional People magazine.
During the pandemic, Greg’s virtual keynote, “You Can‘t Quarantine Laughter”, was lauded by clients such as Cisco, Verizon, Merrill Lynch and Northwestern University.
Participants called it “fantastic and just what everybody needed during this ________ time.”
More than just a humorist and a sought-after emcee, Greg is also an author, nationally syndicated humor columnist for the Chicago Tribune, award-winning greeting card writer and creator of voted one of the top Dad humor sites.
A hilarious series, A Comedian Crashes Your Pad.
He has shared the concert stage with the likes of Celine Dion, Jay Leno and Keith Urban.
A veteran emcee, stand-up comic, and business satirist, he focuses his keen powers of observation on the absurdities of everyday life.
Always working within the parameters of group’s environment.
Greg shows it is possible to laugh at work and about work. Audience members will put down their iPads and Blackberries and laugh along with Greg as he good-naturedly discusses topics such as Smart Phone abuse, social network overload, never-ending conference calls, “frequently” asked questions, and home office workers.
A good emcee needs to multitask. He must keep the event moving, be adept at improvisation and work efficiently with all participants onstage. Greg Schwem has hosted everything from a one-hour awards ceremony for 200 BAE Systems engineers to a three-day conference for 6,000 McDonald’s restaurant managers, to a virtual webinar for IBM customers.
Greg has many years of experience as a stand-up comedian and can turn your meeting space into a comedy club with a routine that combines company information with hilarious real life stories, audience interaction and technology.
He is equally at ease chatting with a company CEO live on stage, pronouncing (correctly) the names of awards recipients, or conducting humorous on-camera interviews.
That means no profanity or politically incorrect material. Greg Schwem’s clean “business humor” is appropriate for a variety of corporate events, from sales meetings to award programs.
Clients have included Microsoft, Cisco, General Motors, IBM, United Airlines, McDonald’s, Motorola, IBM, Wall Street Financial Group, Ernst & Young…
