HOW DOES IT WORK?

Humor Wins produces this event working closely with performers and sponsors to create one of the most memorable nights for Atlanta’s apartment community.

STEP ONE:
The sponsor gives this unique, fun experience to a management company.
– All performers are vendor sponsored.
– We can help pair OM contestants and vendors.

STEP TWO:
The OM then selects their ‘office comedian.’
– Most people say, “Oh, we know exactly who should do this show!”
– Don’t be surprised to find ‘performing stand-up’ on many people’s bucket list.

STEP THREE:
Humor Wins then works directly with the performers to develop and rehearse their material. We have professional writers from Comedy Central, Conan, etc. strengthen and refine the performers’ jokes.
– We follow our ‘Humor Rules’ to ensure that all comedy is corporate appropriate for the apartment community, the individuals and sponsors involved.

Humor Wins does all the heavy lifting

Humor Wins produces the entire event, including:

venue procurement
