Once, while still in the theater, we worked for former bandits. One of the customers was a boxer, such a tough guy. And, standing on the stage, I talked with him and his wife. I stood between them, complimented his wife. And I immediately got a blow in the stomach. I started to fold straight on the floor, and everyone in the hall pretended that it was as if nothing had happened - they supported me by the fact that they allegedly did not notice this terrible story.

Once we had a corporate party. The restaurant was somehow unsuccessful, and there was catastrophically little food on the tables. Unlike alcohol, which was purchased separately. And they began to walk at 3 pm, so everyone got drunk very quickly. But all this was just ridiculous and within the bounds of decency. And deep in the evening, one man literally gets drunk until he loses consciousness. That is, it seems like a drunk fell asleep, but does not give signs of life and does not react to external influences. They slapped him in the face and doused him with water, and lay unconscious. And everyone is drunk too. They called an ambulance. The doctors, too, could not pump it out on the spot. They put me on a stretcher and decided to take me to the hospital urgently. While carried from the second floor along a narrow spiral staircase, they dropped it from a stretcher. And now, at the door, he bam and comes to himself. Our doctors took him away from the doctors and took him home, putting an enema in his jacket for gastric lavage, which was also taken away from the doctors. And the next day I was the most important person, because I had a flash drive with photos from this corporate party.

I spent my first corporate party a long time ago, in 2003. Maybe I have a bad memory, but I only remember the good. If this is a large company, then the security service is always present at the event, and if colleagues see that "Petrovich will not be poured anymore", they will somehow neatly "pack" him. There are a lot of couples kissing and obviously kissing for the first time at a corporate evening, but it's always pleasant for me, as if I mentally wink at that guy at the table. I think that then no one is ashamed.

If we talk about trends, they do not change much from year to year. There is always some kind of concept: a carnival night, or a retro New Year, or a movie New Year, etc. When the movie "The Great Gatsby" came out, several years of weddings, birthdays and corporate parties were arranged in the style of the roaring 20s. x, with jazz and men in hats. There is just a carnival with any fancy dress: if you want - be a gangster, if you want - Batman, but if you want - just a wolf from under the Christmas tree. People, for the most part, try to play something.

Once we had an Indian restaurant, and we decided to make a party in this style: Indian cinema, music, yoga, a girl with a snake. But even at the most inventive New Year's corporate party, there is a standard scheme. First, the guests get together, they are offered interactive platforms - a photo zone, shooting gallery, slot machines, or they can design a casino, as in the James Bond movie. Animators and artists work on the site, they immerse guests in the atmosphere and invite them to the main hall, where they take places at the tables. Then the prologue begins - it can be a film about the company, and then the official part usually follows. It lasts about an hour - it can be interrupted by awarding employees or performances by artists, then a musical break, the guests dance quietly, and the entertainment program begins. Somewhere in between, they manage to feed them, serve a beautiful cake somewhere or arrange fireworks, if the playground permits.

In general, if there is some obviously fashionable and popular TV program, then everyone tries to make it at home on the holiday. For example, "Voice" - people just take it and copy it completely, take all the skips, dice, jury from this program, some companies even invite real star jury members.

90% of corporate events end quite intelligently - everyone gets drunk, starts to clump together, then they sit in separate companies, what happens next - I don't know, I'm there until a certain hour. But a curious incident happened to me last year. One large company held a corporate party in a restaurant, and employees could come with their soul mates. And the husband of the chief accountant got drunk to such an extent that he stripped naked and decided to show off his belly dance, then fight with the guards. They took him out and tried to lower him down the stairs, but in no way.

Another case from last year - a man was so tipsy that he went outside and pretended to be beaten. He came back and said about it, although no one beat him - the cameras filmed that he himself was just hitting the asphalt, the stairs. I don’t know his motives.

In general, to be honest, it rarely happens at corporate parties that people get drunk to an extreme degree when conflicts arise. Still, employees, colleagues - everyone is trying to control themselves. On the contrary, corporate events help the team to become closer, unite, foster a team spirit. This is a good story for the company - another reason to communicate with colleagues without a tie. If something conflicting occurs, then this is 1-2 cases in 8 years.

I remember a corporate party abroad, in Germany, but there was nothing out of the ordinary there. As part of one exhibition in Hannover, we organized a "Russian evening", there were Russian folk ensembles, various groups, ditties, songs. Cool and fun.

And this year I have planned several evenings on the theme of the circus at once, various circus performances are supposed. And I'm a little surprised - it never happened. James Bond, The Great Gatsby are also popular. This year I have two Bond, plus, an evening in the spirit of "Bachelor Party in Vegas".

In recent years, due to the difficult economic situation, there are fewer stars at corporate parties, and employees of companies often stage amateur performances. They began to order less celebrities, media, and expensive. But they definitely ask for dance contests, or those in which a maximum of people can participate, such a kind of team building, where you need to do something together: decorate a Christmas tree or make a Christmas present.

I immediately remember the birthday of one boy, he was a long time ago, 15 years ago. The boy was 10 years old, he was given the coolest phone, but then it was not like it is now. At that time, the cost of the phone was much higher than the salary. At the party there were some friends of this boy, cool artists, on the tables - black caviar. In general, it was a funny sight, because we expected something completely different, we ordered a corporate party, and we got to a children's party. And the boy was a little spoiled, but we found a common language with him. I love football, and we played football with him - I kind of went to work, but in the end I kicked the ball - this was very unexpected for me. But the impressions were good, because corporate events are part of my work, this is a holiday not only for those who celebrate, but also for me.

Strange drunk people happen at corporate parties. But what is negative about that? Drunken people in the New Year are as pure as snow. Why not have a drink at your corporate party, because everyone is waiting for it for a whole year. The chances (especially if it is a large company) that someone will fall down, fight, get drunk, or endure someone are quite high.

Once we had a joint corporate party with Igor Vernik. We were supposed to lead in one place, and Igor Vernik - in another, but there was some kind of hitch with the venue, as a result, we were united in one large hall. The company was huge and motley, and when the cake was rolled out, it was 2 x 1.5 meters and half a meter high. Such a huge cake with eclairs on top, such profiteroles. And since it was already quite a Sabbath, Igor decided to arrange some kind of competition. As a result, all this cake ended up on several women. They pulled off the tablecloth, and the cake, along with the tablecloth, began to slide on them in pieces. And then the whole dance floor was in lying dancers, because they fell, had fun from this and dipped themselves into the cake. But such orgies do not happen often.
