Greg Schwem’s comedic take on the 21st century workplace and work/life balance has landed him on SIRIUS Radio, FOX News, Comedy Central and the pages of Parents Magazine.

Initially he became an award-winning reporter for NBC-owned WPTV in West Palm Beach. But he honed his standup act in nightclubs when he returned to his hometown of Chicago. He began to insert material about business and technology, creating a new approach to comedy.

Schwem has worked McDonald’s, Microsoft, General Motors, IBM, Hyatt Hotels, United Airlines and Cisco Systems. What sets Greg apart from other corporate entertainers is his ability—and willingness—to customise material for his audience while working within the parameters of the corporate environment. That means no profanity or politically incorrect material.

Besides customised material, Schwem entertains audiences with stories about tedious business meetings, SmartPhone addiction, “frequently” asked questions and his fascination with the American Girl Doll company.

In addition to his hefty speaking schedule, Schwem writes a weekly humour column nationally distributed by Tribune Media Services. He also is the author of Text Me If You’re Breathing: Observations, Frustrations and Life Lessons From a Low-Tech Dad. And yes, those are his kids on the cover.
