Funny Auctioneers

What is this politician thinking?

Does he seem to have his mind on the job at hand?

Is the auction block the best place for humor?

Is there a better place for humor?

Stand Up/Sit Up Funny Auctioneers

Sotheby’s, Christie’s and other top world auction houses might argue that there is no place for humor on the auction floor, including the world’s best joke not told by the auctioneer.  Most high end auctions we’ve attended in the Upper East Side of New York City are not funny.  The auctions we’ve attended in Rockefeller Center were even less funny.  The least funny auction we attended was an auction I bid at because the auctioneer was funny and I felt comfortable until I thought about how much that funny man made me spend.

Is there a margin between the 1 and 0 to include humor within cyber space?  Can humans lead full and productive lives without a good laugh?  We at Auction Technology Specialists playfully suggest laughter is good for opening and great for closing.  We do not endorse a line of knock knock jokes at family estate or divorce auctions.  This statement in no way admonishes liability for making fun of lawyers, politicians or public eye celebrities.

If there was a zombie apocalypse after our auction and you chose to eat lawyers and bankers first, you might have less public resistance.  Auctioneers, in our view, are public helpers with important knowledge; are sometimes called upon to lighten the mood and provide entertainment to our audience.  Again, we do not endorse cross dressing cowboy antics to entice extra bidding.  Some of our competitors will cheezeball it up and offer you an extra side of ham.  We Auction Technology Specialists provide truffle gorgonzola with prosciutto for the gourmet snicker.

Again, for an auction involving a fun and active audience, dietary supplements of pasteurized milk and pork rolls may be the happy pill prescription, and then again, might cause a conservative supportive donor to flip his Afghani stack and chop you a new rear end.  Please stay away from insensitive jokes about racism, sexism, politics, religion, death, destruction, murder, violence, family, friends, personal anecdotes, questionable foreign policy, marriage, divorce, physical characteristics, short people, long noses, New Yorkers and anything else funny.

If you are our competition, try to keep your jokes humorless, boring and long if you are getting paid by the hour.  In the event you, the advanced auctioneer, feel obligated to do the best job possible for your client and audience, focus the fun on yourself.  You can make fun of yourself and no one important gets hurt.  If people are laughing at you when you want them to, hopefully they will buy high and enjoy the purchase when you aren’t expecting.

We do not suggest you take away from the festive nature of the evening, nor over shadow the dias with your comedic performance.  Unless stand up was part of your contract, keep a few opening remarks close at hand, be ready and free to use the go to zingers and keep moderation in mind when spicing things up.

Thank you for visiting Auction Technology Specialists

We’re good for a great laugh any day so feel free to contact us here

 

International Auctioneers Convention and Show in Spokane 2012

National Auctioneers Association

2012 International Auctioneers Conference and Show

and International Auctioneers Competition (IAC) in Spokane Washington

What a spectacular experience to be in Spokane Washington with many of the most accomplished auctioneers in the auction industry.  Attendants included the presidents of Ameribid and United Country, Auto Auctioneers from Barett Jackson and Mannheim, Heavy equipment auctioneers and benefit auction specialists from around the globe.

In addition to an international female and male live biding auctioneers competition (IAC), Conference and Show 2012 attendants were able to choose from a list of informative classes taught by knowledgeable specialists.  Classes included branding seminars, bid calling workshops, internet marketing, ring man class, real estate, firearms, benefit auctions, and a host of talks about online auctions, auction technology and the direction of the auction industry.

The weather was beautiful, the food was wholesome and the company of the National Auctioneers Association members was welcome.  Everyone got along and attempted to improve the auction community through town hall meetings, leadership committees, advisory panels, open discussion and of course the online auctioneers’ forum.

Even though this year’s International Conference and Show is already over, there are several educational opportunities through the National Auctioneers Association/Foundation.
