If you want to be the kind of person who can entertain everyone at a large party, you're gonna need more than your usual charismatic tricks. One way to get and keep the attention of your guests is to play characters.
As the video above from Charisma on Command suggests, playing a character -- or several characters -- allows you to entertain and put people at ease without making yourself feel awkward. By putting on the exaggerated characteristics of a diva or a dope, you can make yourself feel more comfortable in a role that you might not normally feel comfortable with.
Of course, Jim Carrey is an extreme example because he's a character unto himself. Virtually every aspect of Carrey's appearance and mannerisms is exaggerated to the extreme. Fortunately, you don't need to go that far. A shift in tone of voice or a mock facial expression can communicate to your guests that you're intentionally being silly for their benefit, rather than making jokes that would otherwise be at their expense. Check out the whole video for more tricks on how to entertain your party guests.
