You're invited to a front row seat as Brad Montgomery grills the experts for their best humor & comedy skills, techniques, and tactics that you will incorporate into your program immediately.

You also know that YOU aren’t as funny as you need to be.  Or as funny as you can be. 

You need to learn real humor that works for real audiences anywhere. But the thought of just trying out some dumb jokes you read on the Internet scares you silly.

And although you know your topic,  you don’t have ANY idea where to start when it comes to adding more humor to your presentation.   

Well lucky you! We’ve put together a team of experts to help you navigate your way to more laughs. What you’ll be hearing has NEVER been revealed like this before.

How to use humor to increase your back of room sales. James Malinchak explains how to structure your presentation so that the audience wants to buy your products. He talks about how to associate your products with laughter and shares real life examples of how he sells.  (This alone is worth the price of this course.)

Admit It, You're Boring!

The highest paid speakers are the first to admit it when their program (or some piece of their program) is dull and lackluster.  And what sets these pros apart from the rest is that they not only admit their weaknesses, they correct them.

When they need humor, they invest time, money and energy … whatever it takes … to make their programs the best they can.

And this is why they earn the big bucks.  (In case you don’t know, top speakers can earn $10,000 - $25,000 for just an hour speech. And if you consider back of the room product sales, those figures can top $100,000 per speech. You don't pull those kind of bucks being boring.)

And if the top speakers are constantly tweaking and improving, don’t you think your program could use some punching up too?

If You Aren't a Comedian...

You just need to get your message out; you need to be a better communicator.

Perhaps you’re a high-content speaker, business presenter, or speaker?  Or maybe you just speak to your company (or PTO, or association, or…) once a year? We know you don’t want to be a stand up comic.  You just need to be better at what you are already doing, right?

But honestly, don’t you think you could learn something from these folks?  Don’t you think that some of the skills these top comedians know might appeal to you and your audiences? Don't you realize that one piece of humor delivered at the right time could make you the hit of the meeting?

You already know that people learn best when they are engaged and involved.  And there is no better way to get people to like you, trust you, and… most importantly… listen to you than to use humor.  Maybe a little.  Or maybe a whole lot.  Get them laughing, and the audience is yours.

If you are not a comedian, you need this series.

If You Are a Comedian...

If you are an entertainer, you know the value of humor.  You know that, no matter how good you are at your craft, you could always be better.  And one more joke, one more chuckle, or one more “ah ha!” can make the difference between a ho-hum program and a standing ovation.

Many of the comedians, magicians, and other entertainers I’ve met want to get into the more lucrative business of professional speaking.  The good news is that the speaking market needs you.  The bad news is that what works well for entertainers is often a HORRIBLE mistake in the corporate world.  You need to know what landmines and booby traps await you in your quest to be funny for the big bucks.  And good news... this course will help.

If you’re a comedian — or ANY type of entertainer — you need this series.

You Also Need to Know What Not to Do

You need to learn the exact situations when you should NOT go for a laugh. Do you know how the following situations effect when and how much humor you should use? 

  • How the time of day affects your program
  • An audience mix of males & females
  • Closing as the last speaker of a program
  • and more...

You need to learn how to detect humor land-mines that can ruin your event (and career) and our experts will help you do just that.  

How much is it worth to know how to keep your foot out of your mouth during an important presentation?

Become a High Paid Professional

No matter your skill or experience level, you know that no matter how good you are, you have it in you to be better. Much better.

You also know that the highest paid professionals do three things:

1.  Constantly work for improvement
2.  Continually invest in their programs
3.  Are funny.  Seriously funny.

What does this mean to you?  It means that if you want to be really good, you need to improve, you need to invest in yourself, and you need to use more humor.  And it means that if you want to make more money, you need to be more funny.

If you’re already a professional, you’ll recognize that these humor masters have tons of killer stuff they will offer you.  And you know that just one killer tip can be worth several times your investment.  And if you’re a novice, you’d be silly not to learn from the best.  If you’re a beginner, you’d be crazy not to shave years off your learning curve by benefiting from the experience and expertise of these masters.

Are You Ready to Get to the Next Level?

If you were to consult with just ONE of these experts, you'd probably pay $500 per hour!  But most of them charge way more than that.  And a couple of them don’t even meet any more with single clients.

But in the Humor College course...

You have unprecedented access to seven of the top humorists and comedians working in the corporate world today with many strategies that will knock your socks off.  (For example,  Darren LaCroix is just dying to tell you some of the secrets he used to earn the title WORLD CHAMPION.  And Doug Stevenson wants to teach you how you can use true and personal stories to get solid laughs from any audience.)

By interviewing each of these humor masters individually, we’ll squeeze each of them for the most thorough, information-packed, focused solutions to get you funnier… but, only if you are ready to take action today.

Your Host,
Brad Montgomery

P.S. If you don’t use THIS opportunity to invest in yourself and your program, what will you do?

P.P.S. You know, in all of my businesses and working with the some of the finest people around, I've found there are two types of people: Those who do, and those who talk. If you've read this far, then I'm sure you are one of the few who DO, because you want to see real results today.  Now, here’s something to do…

Hi, I'm Brad Montgomery

I'm here to help you make your presentations more fun and show you how to get more laughter from your audiences.
I’ve been a comic, speaker and magician for two decades.  I honed my craft in the college circuit, comedy clubs, and cruise ships markets. I've also performed for clients such as Microsoft, Northrop Grumman, the American Payroll Association, and IBM.  I’ve worked for thousands of audiences from 25 people to 2,7000 people. 

I joined John Gray (of Mars/Venus fame) and Mark Victor Hansen (of Chicken Soup renown) to write Mission Possible. And I also co-authored, produced, and published Humor Me: America’s Funniest Humorists on the Power of Laughter, as well as Humor Us:  America’s Funniest Humorists on the Power of Laughter.

I’m not telling you all of this to impress you.  I’m telling you this to let you know that I’m the real deal;  I’m a professional comedian speaker who knows what works (and doesn’t work) in front of an audience.   

I've also worked hard — really hard, got bruised and battered, invested thousands of dollars and spent years learning to deliver humor and comedy.

But I know there has to be an easier way to learn this craft of humor.  There has to be a cheaper and less painful way to learn and master this art of being funny on purpose.

So, I went to the top professional speakers and humor coaches and asked them: 

Can you teach this art?  Can you teach others how to be funnier?

The answer is.... yes! Whether you are a total beginner or a seasoned pro, you can learn how to be funnier in front of your audiences.  And this cast of professionals makes it easy.

You deserve more than just fluff answers given to somebody who doesn’t know any better.  You want the real thing.  And with me, you’ll get just that.

So I put together a one-of-a-kind course called:

Humor College:  The Fast Track To Laughs

In this series of intense interviews,  I’ve grilled our experts of heavyweight, top-tier pros for specific, tested and practical advice for getting more laughs.  I’ve challenged them to give us their best ideas, their best tactics, and their best techniques about how to make our programs funnier. And how to do it fast.

There is NOTHING out there like this!

Sure, there are plenty of products out there that teach humor and comedy skills.  But never before has there been such a collection of top-notch pros who submitted themselves for a grilling from one of their peers.  Never before has there been a series of interviews like this where our pros agreed to share their best undisclosed ideas, their best tactics, and their best pet secrets to the rest of us.

And when I say “grill” I mean grill.   We won’t allow any of these speakers to side-step the tough questions or get away with less than totally complete answers.   We’ll hold their feet to the fire until they give us answers that any speaker at any level can use immediately.

FAQs

What if I want a refund?

We are confident that you’ll love this course.  If you don’t, we’ll give you a refund within the first 30 days.  No risk.  No worry.  We’ve removed every reason NOT to invest.  So, just like Nike… just do it.
