The Water Coolers Connect Meeting Attendees With Laughter

  • The Water Coolers Connect Meeting Attendees With Laughter

    What's a Meeting Without a Laugh?

     
    FROM THE Spring 2018 ISSUE
     

The Water Coolers, a New York City-based music and comedy act that focuses on the world of work and its struggles, was born of a combined expertise. Sally Allen, a former meeting planner, and Thomas Allen, a comedian, worked together to create their award-winning business. Their team of comedians, as well as real-life employees from the working world, put their heads together to create content that will connect employees over shared experiences in the workplace. 

Many meeting planners reach out to Sally Allen, executive producer, for help with connecting attendees and Allen thinks that The Water Coolers is the best way to do so. “It’s truly funny—uncommonly funny—in a way that connects people,” Allen said. “It has this kind of unifying effect for an audience, even in a theater.

The Water Coolers will perform anywhere with a stage, offering several types of performances including a Keynote, You! The Musical, and short performances throughout events. Even though The Water Coolers are pulling humor from frustration in everyday situations, at the end of the day Allen says, “We want people in the room to feel great about how they spend their lives.”
