Does "company" have any meaning of "coworker"? The example may not be related to that meaning. Someone told me he's heard of such a meaning like "coworker" or "colleague", but I don't think so.
3 might be a similar meanig.

kk99)He is great company because he is funny.

This doesn't make sense. It should be 'He is great company because he is funny'. 'Company' in this sense is uncountable.

See definition #2 here: James is good company (= is a cheerful person who is enjoyable to be with).

Sorry, it was my typing mistake, anyway I'm interested in the possible meaning of "coworker" for "company".
