What do you call someone who always livens up the atmosphere at social gatherings, e.g someone who is the most talkative one or helps enliven a party that would otherwise be a boring one. what is the word for this kind of people?

Thank you so much.


I'd call them "the life of the party".

  • +1, but this answer would benefit from an additional sentence. "Life of the party is a widely used idiom." – Tᴚoɯɐuo Oct 31 '18 at 12:24
