“Knowing funny is one thing, being funny is another, teaching funny is another thing yet. These guys at FunnierU can do all three. If you want “funny” for any reason, then you can’t pass up this opportunity to laugh and learn with three of the funniest guys I know.” ~ Bob Eubanks Game Show Host

· * How to tell a joke better
· * How to have a witty observation of the news
George Campbell, and Mark Mayfield will lead us through actual exercises. This will not be just another presentation talking about the “theory” of comedy. This workshop is truly ‘hands on’. FunnierU staff will explain the concepts, show the concept, and do the exercises with the participants. You will get the tools you need to incorporate humor into your programs. It will be theoretical, practical, and learnable regardless of your comic skill set. And one more thing…it will be Hilarious!
About FunnierU - (www.FunnierU.com) is a comprehensive comedy training, coaching, and daily joke writing service. This three-member faculty of FunnierU, namely George Campbell, Mark Mayfield, and Tim Gard, are all “Hall of Fame” speakers who bring a wealth of real world comedy to this program. This three-member faculty of FunnierU has nearly one hundred years of combined experience in the speaking and comedy arenas (they were telling jokes in kindergarten)
They know comedy, and they can teach it. The FunnierU program is entirely different because you’ll actually learn how to break down comedy and how to write jokes, all different types of jokes. And as you’re going through the workbook, you’ll be listening to the authors go through it with you. It’ll be like having them in the room with you, which could also qualify you for hazard pay. But know this, it’ll be fun too. And is there anything more fun than fun?
Mark Mayfield, CSP, CPAE
A former corporate lobbyist and nightclub performer, Mark Mayfield is one of America’s finest humorists. Content based yet comedy driven, it’s pretty simple what he does...he talks about VERY SERIOUS stuff in a VERY FUNNY way. If you want to learn about change, or teamwork, or stress, or customer service for example; why not have a great time doing it?
Mark is the author of the popular book, “Mom’s Rules”, a comedic yet poignant look at those things Mom said to us as kids, and has been inducted into the “CPAE” Speaker Hall of Fame by the National Speakers Association. From comedy shows to seminars, his philosophy is simple.....say it with humor and people will take the message home. A national convention planner recently called Mark “one of the very few, really funny, inspiring men in America today”.
George Campbell AKA “Joe Malarkey”, CSP, CPAE
Has an irreverent, contrarian approach to success that has propelled him to TV appearances ranging from the prestigious “60 Minutes” to the embarrassing “To Tell the Truth.” His new program, “The Upside of Down,” explores opportunities concealed behind current economic challenges. He hilariously examines this brief window in time when we can remake our companies, our markets, and ourselves. George/Joe combines the best of his famous “Choose to Lose” program with a perfectly-timed message of optimism. Hope has never been this funny! And, he is an inductee in the Speaker Hall of Fame.
