Ladies and Gentlemen, all the Way from the Pub Next Door: Your Corporate MC!
There’s an art to hosting an evening. Some people have got it and others haven’t. Those that do have it will sometimes make a career – or at least a side hustle – from fronting for other people as an MC for corporate events. It’s a noble calling because if you have ever tried standing up in front of a large room full of people and making them like you and maybe laugh even though you’re not an actual comedian for corporate events, you will know it’s not easy.

What Does an Event MC Do?
Event MCs have got to be the leader, even though these are not their people. They have to have a grasp of what the company’s all about, even though they may have never been in their offices. They have to entertain and at the same time avoid offending people. They’re steering somebody else’s ship and trying to keep everybody happy while they’re all looking at them, from the receptionist and the secretary to the CEO.
Above all, a corporate MC has to contribute something to the proceedings. Their presence has to make the whole thing better, because they are being paid for it and they don’t want the organisers and bosses thinking they would have been better off doing it themselves.
What Makes a Particular Corporate MC Right for Your Event?
To find the right corporate entertainer, you need to know exactly what you’re looking for, which of course as a company employee (or maybe you’re the boss yourself) you can do, no problem. But who fits the bill? Who matches the definition you can set out for the role? Somebody you know? Unlikely. An international star who does it for the Golden Globes in Hollywood? Whoa! Ricky Gervais would be too expensive, and anyway, he would take the mickey out of the wrong person and you would end up getting the blame for hiring him.
So you don’t know who’s out there. But you know someone who does because you’re reading about us right now. We are Stargigs, and corporate events are our business, including finding the right MC for your corporate event.
It’s a vital part of the whole experience and you’ve got to get the right person or the whole thing could be ruined. You’re going to fill the evening with entertainment of some sort, so unless your event MC doubles as a comedian or DJ hire – which is always a possibility – you don’t need them doing stand-up spots. On the other hand, you don’t want your people thinking, “Oh no, not this dork again.”
We know people. In this line of work, it is fair to say we know every quality event entertainer in Canberra. We can find the right MC for your corporate events. No problems.
Okay, What Should I Do First?
Get in touch with Stargigs, either through the online form or by calling us. Let us know what you’re planning and we’ll give you all the help you need. If you just need that front person, we’ll do that for you. If you are still in the planning stages and want input about venues and entertainers too, we’ll be delighted to help.
