Comedy At Work
Virtual Birthday Parties
Hi, thank you for visiting Comedy at Work’s virtual birthday party page. We have had to move our birthday party offering into the virtual world and wow have we got a fun and exciting event for anyone celebrating a birthday. We can cater for anyone between 7 to 100+, even Lego only cater for up to 99 !
We host birthday parties with a difference, they’re fun, interactive and bring out every child’s natural creativity. This isn’t just sitting down in front of a screen and being entertained. This is being entertained while having fun and learning new skills. They not only have a great time but, they also increase their own self confidence.
Our parties are held over the ZOOM platform and last 90 mins( this is not a strict timing and we quite often run over, we never stop the fun due to time!), you don’t need an account with Zoom, you can join through a link that we will send to you. We even provide you with individually designed digital invites to send to your guests with all the details they need.
During one of our events all the guests will learn up to three simple magic tricks from our ‘West End’ magician Wayne Trice and how to perform them with a funny story using their own creativity as coached by Stand-Up Comedian Mark Hinds. We even get them to creatively come up with their own magician's Stage Name to use later in the party.
The magic they will learn requires some basic household objects; paper, coins, rubber bands and a deck of ordinary playing cards. The difficulty of the tricks is always adapted to match the age group of the party. Wayne teaches them all the tricks so that they can be performed in person or into a screen
They will then learn how to create a funny story out of nothing. We use various games from the world of ‘Improvised Comedy’ to really get them being creative. This is brilliant and very very funny, I’m even going to use some of the characters the kids have come up with so far when we are finally allowed to perform on stage again! Just to make sure we give the guests an all-round experience we even teach them what to do if the trick goes wrong, we have had some budding little Tommy Coopers already. This gives them great confidence when it comes to the finale of the party.
As a finale, every guest who wishes to, can perform the trick of their choice to whole party. We always give them the option to not do this if they are not comfortable performing. This is a great way to end this unique party and we invite the parents/guardians to come and watch their child shine and have fun.
