“There is little success where there is little laughter.”

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once we have our ten (10) performers, we work directly with them to develop and rehearse their material. We take that material and have professional writers from Comedy Central, Conan, etc. strengthen and refine the performers’ jokes.
The performers’ companies must be event planners, meeting planners or DMCs. Focusing on these professions helps bring more value to our sponsors who pay for the entire event.
WHAT ABOUT OFFENSIVE MATERIAL?
We follow our ‘Humor Rules’ to ensure that all comedy is corporate appropriate for the real estate community, the individuals and sponsors involved.
HOW CAN I BE OR SUBMIT A PERFORMER?

WHY DO THIS EVENT?
AFHP is your chance to perform stand-up comedy in front of a very friendly audience using professional comedy writers. Your performance is three-to-five minutes long and the audiences are so happy to see their peers on stage that if your joke is a four, they respond with like it’s a seven. We promise this will be one of the best nights of your life.
If you win, you get prize money and a trophy that shows you are Atlanta’s Funniest Hospitality Professional. If you don’t win, you still accomplished something amazing that most people never get a chance to do.
This high-energy event is going to be one of the best networking events for Atlanta’s hospitality community. Imagine you, your colleagues, and/or your clients spending an evening laughing together. You want your firm to be represented by one of the ten (10) performers entertaining them.
Even without having your own performer, you want to show your people a good time doing something different and exciting.
Trophies are given to the organization as well as the performer. You can proudly display this trophy in your office to let everyone know you have the Atlanta’s Funniest Hospitality Professional.
PLUS, this comedy show is a great Team Building event as your team shows their support for your performer. Laughter is one of the best ways to bond with another individual. AFHP is a unique opportunity to have such an experience.
Grabbing the attention of the hospitality community requires ideas that are truly unique, fun and fresh.
Atlanta’s Funniest Hospitality Professional is an opportunity for sponsors to make a high impact with event planners, meeting planners and DMCs by providing them one of the most memorable nights in Atlanta hospitality history.
One of our goals for this exciting evening is to build ‘Community Through Comedy’ because…
“Laughter is the closest distance between two people.”
– Victor Borge
“Laughter destroys any kind of system of dividing people.”
– John Cleese
“The moment a person laughs, they are never more themselves.”
– George Carlin
We are currently looking for sponsors. If you are interested in making a splash, PLEASE CONTACT US HERE.
