A Comic Roast
is a 30-minute tailor-made musical revue that
satirises your team, while celebrating them in
song! Comic Roasts create a show of song and
shtick that roasts your boss and
toasts your team, all set to familiar
tunes. And because it starts with a
thorough personal briefing, the comedy always
hits the right note! Heres how it works at
Imagine you're at a conference
dinner, company celebration, client function,
retirement 'send-off' or other special event.
Everyone is pleasantly relaxed
but with no idea of what's to come. The MC rises
to the platform to introduce the guest presenters
- two "top investigators" from the
industry regulatory body! Eyebrows raise.
It seems the pair have been going over the
organisation with a fine tooth comb, trawling
through HR records, scrutinizing fringe benefits
and enjoying full access
to staff e-mails. "Please give them your
full attention." There are looks of concern
The pair accept the polite, if nervous,
applause and announce they're about to release
their findings. Then they explain they don't go
in for the usual audio-video props and toys -
'Death by PowerPoint'.
"No," they say, "We prefer to
sing our reports." The game is up!
With a flourish, the pair
launch into their musical-satirical
routine, David at the piano, Geoff at the
microphone. As the laughter flows, the
organisation is parodied and pilloried,
the boss is gently barbecued (medium
rare... just pink!) and staff are
celebrated in song.
Familiar 'issues' are
set to well-known tunes, the team's
successes and slip-ups immortalised in
popular song. And the spooky thing is: it
seems like these guys really do know your
organisation inside out!
And when it's time for the big sing-along
finale, the audience doesn't need a
second invitation to join in! Hands on
heart - with lyric sheets in hand - the
whole room sings along loudly and proudly
to their own new 'anthem'
Nothing could be more morale-boosting or
team-building. Or more fun.
This is the unique appeal of a Comic Roast!
