About Us

The Game Show Guy has worked live corporate events nationwide and into Canada for many fortune 100 companies, major sports teams and even small company get togethers. We've learned from our experiences and are really clear on what we can and can't do. We can work and engage directly with groups from 6 to 1000.

What We Do

When someone asks what we do, it's simple -- we make run of the mill events fun by engaging the audience and creating a welcoming interactive experience. Sometimes we're hired for delivery of important company content and/or for corporate training. Sometimes our game show services are just for fun -- but all in all we think it should be a bit of both. In all candor, what looks like a great show on paper drummed up by a holiday party committee or the hr team or the ceo may go over like a led balloon come game day. A good game show has good writers and planning behind the scenes. We think what works best is when a committee calls us in (phone or in person) for a game show brainstorming. Like a large Southwest Ad & Marketing Agency recently did for their client Dairy Queen. It's true a Blizzard must be able to flip over and stickÉ but how long will it stick? What could we do to really make a point? How about get the bald account rep in a video with a timer and a Blizzard over his head and find out once and for all. Live physical comedy can be incorporated into a Family Feud Style or Jeopardy Style Game Show to really up the level of fun.

If you're going to do something that's supposed to be fun - do it right. Often Game Show Guy is contracted to do really high profile events that will keep the top brass looking good. In fact fairly often we've worked events wherein we co-host with executives to be sure they shine and get through an event as the "main" host. It's really not something just anyone can do. Not just anyone can look someone in the eye after a ridiculous answer and say "okÉ you're sure the answer you're going with is gerbil". It takes the right person to host a show and keep the "show" itself in a sphere of respect. In other words we know it's more about the messenger than the message. We also know a great host knows exactly how far to push the often lively banter between host and contestant without being too off color.

Because the principal has experience in every field from automotive to tech and nutrition and even finance, real estate and tech it makes for a well rounded, come from any angle opportunity. You're working with a team that can quickly grasp who you are in your industry. It's not a 20 year old with a couple speakers and carpeted buzzer boxes. It's a polished show that will have you shine. The host (Dan Nichols) always knows it's about the contestants, not himself. If he can make you and your people shine - he's done his job.

We blend the strategic with creative

The Game Show Guy has over a 2 decade track record helping to transform the world's great companies and the events they hold into livelier better versions of what came before.

Thoughts For a Great Show

Working together, we can find way to build a great game show. It would be great to think we can just show up and deliver but the truth is we want to know about you and your company culture. It makes it all better. Kind of like researching a candidate before you meet them for an interview. Homework makes the big day look easy and fairly seamless (remember, it's live). We're passionate about always doing the right thing for our clients, even if it takes some elbow grease.

Better Events Through Appropriate Planning

We find out who you are first. Then we work to figure out what you want from the event. Finally, through a number of conversations we map it out and deliver it on game day.

Measuring 3 Times to Cut Once

If all you want is a fun night of Family Feud or Jeopardy Style Gaming then we can do that. But if you've got a message or theme to deliver, maybe company training, we can do that too.
