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:
All OM contestants are sponsored.
– Make this wise investment in your team and one of your star associates.
– Or we can help pair OM contestants with vendor sponsors.

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.
- And don't keep all that talent contained in your office... share it with the industry.

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.
