"You Can't Cancel Laughter," says Greg Schwem as he shares it is possible to laugh at work and about work!

The Huffington Post calls Greg Schwem "your boss's favorite comedian." But Greg is more than just a stand-up comedian. He is a 25-year business humor veteran, tasked with making the corporate world laugh at itself.

More than just a business humorist, Greg is also an author, nationally syndicated humor columnist, and has shared the concert stage with the likes of Celine Dion, Jay Leno, and Keith Urban.

A graduate of Northwestern University’s prestigious Medill School of Journalism, Greg never envisioned a career in laughter. Instead, he settled in Florida, becoming an award-winning reporter for NBC-owned WPTV in West Palm Beach.

But the comedy bug bit Greg hard and he returned to his hometown of Chicago, where he honed his standup act in nightclubs. When he began inserting material about business and technology into his act, audience members approached him and said, “You really should come down to my office and tell those jokes.” Behold! A new approach to comedy was born.

Just don’t give me a 10-K report. There is NOTHING funny about that.”
