Comedy is cheaper than therapy!
Perhaps you cannot teach funny, but you can teach anyone to get on stage and have fun sharing some stories and much needed laughter. This program can be a fun launching point for those with dreams of becoming a professional comic, but my focus is teaching others to use comedy to develop your sense of self awareness, build your confidence and develop powerful team and leadership skills.
Getting on stage is a cathartic experience. I live on the edge of a cliff, and at any point I could fall flat on my face. I rip the band aid of fear off every time I jump in front of a microphone. Right before stepping into the spotlight, I replace the thoughts of THIS COULD GO TERRIBLY BAD with THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN. Take a few HUGE breaths and GO FOR IT!
