The Program:

There’s not a presentation that can’t be made better with a little (or a lot) more humor. It engages the audience, makes the material memorable, thrills the meeting planner, and propels your presentation to the best marketing tool you have.

But just how does one funny-up one’s presentation? What if you get titters but want guffaws? Or maybe you present serious stuff—how can you add humor to that without taking away from the depth of your knowledge?

Tim, George and Mark are hilarious and seasoned veterans of the stage, but more importantly can teach you how to “do funny.” This is a side-splitting teleseminar wrapped around the fundamentals of comedy writing and performing. It’s not just a bunch of funny stories from these guys, it’s hands-on exercises and information not taught anywhere else. Absolutely nobody has broken down comedy writing and performing like them, and regardless of your comedic level, you’ll benefit from this innovative material.

Join three funny guys—and Rebecca keeping them focused—for an hour of how to make you and your presentation funnier. And did we mention an interview with these guys is fun?

You will learn:

  • Where to find comedy opportunities in your program. Never again will you say, “I just can’t find any funny stuff.”
  • The most important step in writing humor. Many great performers do this innately and don’t even know they do it. By the way, nobody teaches this.
  • Four joke-writing techniques. Real exercises that teach you.
  • At least 10 performance secrets that great comics use. This will make your humor “kill.”
  • How to constantly improve your comedy quotient. Behavioral changes that will get you in the “humor mindset.”

More about our guest experts:

George Campbell, Mark Mayfield, and Tim Gard are all NSA Hall of Fame humorists and the creators of FunnierU, a comprehensive comedy training, coaching, and daily joke-writing service. This three-member faculty of FunnierU has nearly one hundred years of combined experience in the speaking and comedy arenas. (They were telling jokes in kindergarten.) They know comedy, but more importantly, they can teach it! They’re experts in the “art” of comedy and experts in the “science” of comedy. George Campbell came from stand-up comedy. Mark Mayfield migrated from the corporate world. Tim Gard started in government and training. Three different backgrounds, three different styles. Hilarious presenters and hilarious teachers.
