Clean Comedian keeps them laughing at a San Francisco Bay Area Grad Party

There are several ways that comedians are used at private parties and for corporate events. One important factor in deciding on the right comedian is to determine first, whether the comedian could use "blue" humor or politically incorrect humor. Comedians use, what could be described as offensive humor, in comedy clubs. For most private and corporate events, the requirement is that the comedian "work clean," and that the comedian only uses politically correct humor. Here is comedian Anthony Hill, at a high school graduation party for 250 people, at Chandni Indian Restaurant, Newark, California. Anthony "worked clean" and his comedy about married life, investments, fitness clubs, and doctors, received rave reviews.
