The 3-Day Virtual Workshop

“There is nothing like the feeling of making an audience laugh.” - Darren

What's the workshop about? Check it out...


Are you a professional keynote speaker who wants to captivate your audience and leave a lasting impression? Do you struggle to infuse humor into your stories, making them memorable and engaging? You are not alone. Most speakers love humor and wish they could get more laughs. Finding humor in stories is not a skill set most are born with.


Imagine this: You’re on stage, delivering your speech. You’ve spent weeks preparing, and the content is stellar, but the audience’s faces remain stoic. They’re not laughing; they’re not engaged. Your message isn’t resonating, and your impact is lost.

Humor is a powerful tool in a speaker’s arsenal, and it’s often the missing ingredient that separates the good from the unforgettable. Finding the right balance of humor in your storytelling can be challenging, especially if you’re not a natural comedian. But without it, your message may go in one ear and out the other, leaving your audience uninspired and unimpressed.

Anyone can steal a joke from the internet and try and make it fit your story. Not only can that damage your reputation instantly, but it is like slapping a piece of duct tape on your story. Everyone can see it, and it feels awkward. So, how can you uncover organic humor hidden in your story?

Whether you are a keynote speaker competing to get booked more often, want humor in your demo reel, or competing in a speech competition, humor is a powerful differentiator.

Introducing “Finding the Funny: Creating Stories that Stick,” a two-day virtual workshop designed exclusively for speakers like you. What if you had your skills and could “think” like a comedian? Even better, what if you knew the secret process comedians follow? This is a process comedians do every day, but they don’t want you to know about it. It is their secret power. You’ll discover exactly what they look for and why. You’ll see gold in your stories that you never would have on your own. It’s right there if you know where to look!

You’ll get the full event replays! You’re not attending this master class just to laugh and learn. You want to have your own humor & jokes you can use again and again!

Research shows that within one hour of watching a class, people will have forgotten approximately 50% of the information that was presented to them. Within 24 hours, they will have forgotten nearly 70% of new information and within one week, it increases to 90%. This is why we give you one full year to review the recordings as often as you’d like. Be a sponge. When you rewatch the Master Workshop with your notes you’ll get even more insight every time through!

OK, What’s My Investment?

Well, what is your reputation worth? Every time you are in front of an audience, your impact is multiplied. What would more laughs every time you present for the rest of your career be worth to you? How would you feel if you walked away with a new or dramatically improved story you could tell again and again? What’s that worth? You’ll also be able to see more humor potential every time you look at a story. Worth?

Time is money. Darren invested six years of his life learning it the hard way. He took six years of classes, bombing at countless comedy clubs, and frustrating trial-and-error to go from zero stage presence to winning the World Championship of Public Speaking with a very funny speech. (Some say one of the funniest in the history of the contest while also making a point!).

You have 3 choices:

  • Keep doing it the way you have been.
  • Invest $3,500 in a personal coach/comedy writer.
  • Get all Darren condensed the best of what he learned in over two decades into this 3-day transformational experience.
