Humor Boot Camp

Whether you are a first time attendee to HBC, or looking to brush up your skills, this event is a must. Darren and Chris will be digging deep into some crucial aspects of speechwriting for humor:

  • OPENING FUNNY: We all know first impressions matter. We will teach you the secrets to creating an immediate connection by getting laughs in the most important part of your speech: the first 90 seconds.
  • DON’T STOP HALF WAY TO BE FUNNY: We’ll show you how to take your humor writing to the next level by creating alternate punchlines and polishing them so that they have the most impact.
  • WORKING YOUR CREATIVE HABIT with Observational Comedy. Using systems we teach you, you will learn how to see premises for humor out in the world, and develop them into relatable jokes that will elevate your stories and deliver more punch to your speeches.
  • BASIC BRUSH-UP: Fundamentals rule, so we will also hit the basics of joke structure and creating lists that lead to jokes.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to use humor to become a dynamic and engaging speaker.

Who Should Attend:

  • Speakers and presenters looking to add humor to their speeches
  • Professionals seeking to engage and captivate their audience
  • Anyone wanting to improve their communication and public speaking skills
