Why Does Being Funnier Matter?

Do you want to get and keep your audience’s attention? What is better proof of that than laughter? If they’re laughing, they’re learning. What if you could bring a boring subject to life? That would separate you from the pack for sure. It also increases the audience’s retention rate. Do it for them!

  • ​More bookings
  • Get rebooked more often
  • Sell more in the back of the room
  • More fun for them & you!

Consider this: you are an event planner, and you have to choose a speaker. Speaker A is a leading expert and has great content. Speaker B is also a leading expert, has great content, and is funny. Whom would you hire? Meetings and seminars are often boring. Let your audience laugh while they learn, and you’re more likely to get asked back. Being funny will not only increase your rehire rate but will also boost your back-of-room sales as well. Who wouldn’t want to follow you if you make them laugh? It just makes being on stage more fun too!

What Makes This an Experience?

Can You Really Learn to Be Funnier?

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. Come discover the inside scoop from two humor pros.

Chris McGuire, Executive Producer, Showrunner and writer with a wide breadth of experience across traditional and digital  platforms. Proven record of creating fresh & successful entertainment formats. My passion is collaborating with both established and emerging talent and bringing their unique voices to diverse audiences.

I love managing teams.

What Makes Funny People Funny?

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 2 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.

What if I'm Not Funny?

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.

Forever Change How You Look at Laughter

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

He reported back after he delivered the presentation he was working on during the event. Love it! BAM!

— Seth, Wells Fargo Executive

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?

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!)

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.
