One of the worst reputations to have is “the person who can’t throw a party.” There are several big events that most people host parties for, and when the discussion of who is going to throw the party comes up, you want everyone to say, “you host; your parties are so much fun.”
Below is a list of party entertainment that will have your guests coming back time and time again.
Stand Up Comedy
With the creation of podcasts and a new generation of Netflix, popular and famous stand-up comedians are far more abundant than ever. People like Bert Kreischer, Kevin Hart, John Mulaney, and Tom Segura have created a new brand of a comedian. The classics like Eddie Murphy, Tony Baker, and Adam Sandler are fantastic, but you see more funny people more frequently. It won’t be as difficult as you might think to find someone funny for your party.
It isn’t anything new or exciting, live music has been a well-explored option for party entertainment, and the best part is, you can find a band just about anywhere! Everyone loves to listen to live music, no matter what the occasion.
One thing to be aware of when booking a band for your next event is your audience. Steer clear of hiring a pop-punk rock band like Blink-182 for a formal office business party, but apart from that, your live musical entertainment is sure to turn heads and hopefully start nodding them in the process.
Everyone has been to a themed party at least once, but with current events, you can always take a themed party to the 2020s. Instead of boring, old, used themes like the ’70s and ’80s, ditch that flowered shirt and leotard and dressed up like a nurse. Don’t forget your mask! Your new and exciting 2020 theme will stir up conversation and get everyone to celebrate the fact that they can leave their house.
Hiring magicians may sound cheesy, like you are going to your 12-year-old nephew’s birthday party and your sister hired a close relative with a set of cards. The truth is that magic is on the rise. With people like Matt Franco and Dustin Tavella winning the popular game show “America’s Got Talent,” it paves the way for a new era of personable and entertaining magicians.
The best part about everything on this list is that it is original, or it can have an original spin. Hiring a band or a DJ isn’t an original party entertainment idea, but you can play unique music or hire an amazing band. What captivates people’s attention is something they have never seen before, so why give anyone an excuse to say your party is boring.
Plus, if you look at it this way, even if your entertainment is bad and original, people will still be talking about it weeks after the party is over.
