Funny Awards Show by Larry Weaver
About the Presentation
Fun awards show for your audience members hosted by a professional stand-up comedian. Recognize that employee, volunteer or staff member who takes the last cup of coffee, is always losing paperwork, or can never be found.
Just like a real Awards show, the event begins with the host performing an opening stand-up comedy routine. You'll get clean jokes appropriate for your company or organization. The fun kicks into an even higher gear as the Awards show portion begins. Watch the hilarity unfold as your host hands out funny awards that will have your whole audience laughing. The comedian will present the awards with customized material written just for your group and audience members. Pre-select the biggest "characters" from your group for an unforgettable presentation. You choose from a list of over 400 funny awards, and Larry will give you a program your audience will remember. This is all good-natured fun. The show is not meant to embarrass -- only to entertain!
Perfect for: employee awards programs, holiday office parties, teacher banquets, volunteer recognition, staff appreciation, family reunions, church functions, or any event that could use an interactive and fun presentation!

Frequently Asked Questions
How many awards should we give out?
We've found that +/- 15 awards works well.
How long does the presentation last?
Larry typically starts the show with 20-30 minutes of stand-up comedy. A good rule of thumb is the awards take about 1 minute each. Larry has done presentations lasting anywhere from 20-60 minutes.
I'm concerned that some audience members might be offended?
Don't worry! We have dozens of "Job Well Done" awards to choose from. Larry can take something as simple as "Most Punctual" or "Best Dressed" and still make it funny! Or just don't give the uptight people awards. Either way, we'll make sure everyone has fun without feeling uncomfortable.
Do we need a stage and video screen?
No, you are free to make the awards presentation as modest or as grand as you'd like to make it. Larry has done many presentations to small groups with no sound system. Other groups incorporate video screens with a PowerPoint presentation featuring photos of the winners. Others still have had a DJ play music during the show. This is a show that works for any size group in any environment.

Integrity Staffing Services, Inc.
"Larry Weaver provided a great show for our company Christmas gathering. I was impressed by his timely responses and willingness to accommodate our schedule during all of the arrangements. The presentation was funny with just the right amount of interaction with the guests. I think it’s amazing that he can zero in on the feel from the audience and know just who to ‘pick’ on, like our Winchester folks. I also appreciate him customizing ‘Twas the night before Christmas’ using our peculiar little stories. That was a big hit with everyone. It was our first experience with a comedian and we were all very happy with the outcome. Thanks so much."
"Larry Weaver did a phenomenal job. Not only did he exceed our expectations, he went above and beyond. His award ceremony was on point and he made the crowd shed tears for about an hour straight. Highly recommend for any event."
Columbus Regional Healthcare System
"Larry Weaver's performance exceeded my expectations. All of the feedback that I have received has been extremely positive. One of the directors in attendance remarked that this was the best service awards banquet she has ever attended. A couple of the other directors in attendance indicated that they thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. Larry was very prompt, arriving well ahead of the start of the banquet. Very professional and brought attire to ensure he was dressed appropriately for the occasion. The material he used was both clean & appropriate and related well to the audience he was addressing. The directors enjoyed picking out 'funny awards' that related to their employees and I believe the employees enjoyed receiving these awards at the banquet. Prior to the event, Larry was very responsive in replying to our request to book entertainment and always followed up and through in a timely manner. It was truly a pleasure meeting him. Thank you."

"Larry Weaver was a huge hit at our company Christmas Party. His act was the perfect blend of customized company humor and general humor. The funny employee awards were the icing on the cake of his performance. His clean yet hilarious jokes allowed the group of diverse employees to bond. Employees raved about him after the event, especially the CEO. He said that he's never laughed as hard as he did that night. (Thanks Larry for making me look good for my boss!) Not only was he awesome the night of the party, but working with him before the event was a breeze. He was professional, organized and friendly. I would recommend Larry to any group or company to spice up their next event."
