- FACULTY: Stephanie McHugh & Darren LaCroix, CSP, AS, WCSP
Finally, a place where professionals can go to learn how to be funnier. We’re not talking about learning to tell dirty jokes. We are talking about learning how to get more laughs in a professional setting to make your message more digestible! When they are laughing, they are listening. Discover secrets to create your own unique humor that you can use again and again.
Darren LaCroix is living proof that you can. His journey of becoming a comedian, even though he wasn’t funny, is not only ironic, but it’s also the truth. He proved that you can learn to be funny. He bombed miserably at a comedy club in Boston in 1992. Fast forward to 2001 when he out-spoke 25,000 contestants to become the World Champion of Public Speaking. He created one of the most talked about speeches in the history of the contest, and it was funny! Part of the secret he discovered was that comedians use humor formulas and templates that they don’t want the public to know about. Discover the inside scoop from three humor pros.
Would you agree that funny people think differently? They do. So, if you want to be funnier you have to think the way funny people think. Doesn’t that make sense? This Humor Boot Camp® is packed with over ten laughter-generating exercises. These exercises are designed to change the way you think and look at things. They will train your brain to see things funny. By the end of these 3 days, you’ll not only see humor potential in more places, but you’ll also know how to deliver it again and again. You’ll never look at humor the same way again.
Perfect. You are like Darren when he started out. Darren started his career at an open mic night at a Boston comedy club. He was horrible. That night’s headline comedian literally told Darren as he left the stage, “Don’t quit your day job.” He was never told he was funny, and he had no stage presence whatsoever. In fact, at the Humor Boot Camp® you will see a video clip of his very first time on stage. That clip is guaranteed to inspire you.
Because Darren learned the hard way, he is quick to point out the shortcuts to make your journey light years faster than his. He has taken principles from the comedy world and adapted them to help you create clean humor you can use in your presentations again and again. Darren has been telling one of his jokes for over 20 years, and it still works every time! Because this is an interactive experience and not a sit-and-listen seminar, you’ll build your own humor confidence during the course of this workshop.
Stephanie McHugh, who after doing comedy less than a year in her 30s, with two small children, won a trip to the Las Vegas Comedy Festival as a finalist in the Laugh Across America Contest. She kept radio listeners laughing on the Steve and Stephanie Morning Show on KOOL 105 in Denver, CO. She was also on Nick at Nite’s TV Show “America’s Funniest Mom”.
In addition to stand up, Stephanie is now helping entrepreneurs and speakers add humor to their own presentations so they can connect with their audiences. Stephanie is dedicated to helping people who have a message and knows how humor can help their message resonate with their audience.
Get out of your head and into the moment. If you can’t be in the moment, you just can’t be funny. Period. A crucial part of delivery is making an audience laugh. Most people don’t realize it, but improv is essential to getting laughs.
“If you are in your head, your emotions are dead.” – Darren
Darren has an improv background. Before stand-up comedy and speaking, Darren played a groom in an improv, dinner theater wedding show. He credits the stage presence he has now to be direct result of his improv experience.

Hear what Humor Boot Camp Survivors Said…
He reported back after he delivered the presentation he was working on during the event. Love it! BAM!
— Seth, Wells Fargo Executive
“I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after one day, oh my gosh, I’m so confident and excited about what I’ve learned. I feel like I can go up on stage and do anything I want to do and be funny at the same time. This boot camp is awesome!”
“’I’ve been told I need to lighten up. I’m here to learn how to do that both socially and when speaking. After the boot camp, the phrase that sticks with me is: after the laughter is the height of listening.”
“’My first thoughts when I came to Humor Boot Camp® were, I’m not funny. After just one day, I might just have a chance, thanks to the tools and Laff-ermations I’ve gotten.”
“I had a major breakthrough!
You definitely should check this out.”

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, 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!)
