The Huffington Post calls Greg Schwem, “Your boss’ favorite comedian.” That’s because Greg’s clean, razor-sharp wit, and family-man stage presence has made him a favorite for audiences worldwide. More than just an entertainer, Greg is also a best-selling author, nationally syndicated humor columnist for the Chicago Tribune, and award-winning greeting card writer.

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 on-camera 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 stand-up act in nightclubs, eventually graduating to bigger rooms and larger audiences. Greg’s media appearances include stints on Comedy Central, VH-1, and Sirius/XM Radio, where he can be heard regularly on Laugh USA. He has appeared in concert with the likes of Celine Dion, Keith Urban, Jay Leno, and Enrique Iglesias. As a corporate entertainer, Greg’s clients have included Microsoft, McDonald’s, IBM, and Southwest Airlines. And when he travels, Greg often stays at Airbnb and other “home sharing” properties, treks that have resulted in a hilarious, ongoing web series, A Comedian Crashes Your Pad.

Greg blogs regularly for the Today Show and is the author of two Amazon best sellers: Text Me If You’re Breathing: Observations, Frustrations and Life Lessons from a Low-Tech Dad and The Road to Success Goes Through the Salad Bar:  A Pile of BS (Business Stories) From a Corporate Comedian.

  • "This was a perfect session for a Monday in light of all the online teaching and business meetings I have had to participate in over the past month. It was a good reminder of how to use humor to motivate and communicate, and connect with the audience. Use of questions now and then kept me engaged. Credentials and background of the presenter was excellent and I got some useful tips to use in my classes." Shirley Daniel CPA
