What differentiates keynote speakers is humour. Sir Ken Robinson’s TED Talk titled ‘Do schools kill creativity?‘ has been watched over 63 million times. It’s the most watched keynote speech of all time, and it’s also hilarious. The best Bill Gates had been able to achieve was 5.5 million, Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google, 1.8 million, and even the former US President, Bill Clinton, had only accumulated a measly 930,000 views on TED.com. All these speakers are household names, and yet the relatively unknown British comedian, James Veitch, has more than ten times their views. Why? Again, because like Ken Robinson, James Veitch is funny.
In this three hour workshop, comedian Gerry Masi, will introduce you to techniques which will add to your appeal, build goodwill with your audience, and ultimately make you more successful. You will learn:
1. The Normal-Normal-Twist joke structure,
2. Random Word joke creation, and
3. Crowd work.
