Tired of being DULL in front of your audiences?
Discover The REAL Secrets For Getting Huge Laughs, Thunderous Applause and Rave Reviews…
… From The Top Speaking and Comedy Pros On The Planet
If you are ready to invest in yourself, your program, and your ability to truly communicate with any audience, then you have found the right place.
A course for any speaker or entertainer — at any level — who is serious about getting more laughs from any audience.
For two decades, I’ve been paid to be funny on stage. I worked hard— really hard, got bruised and battered, invested thousands of dollars and spent years learning to deliver humor and comedy.
But there is an easier way to learn this craft of humor. There 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?
And you’ll love the answer. 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.
I’ve put together a one-of-a-kind telephone training series called:
Humor College: The Fast Track To Laughs
In this series of intense interviews, I’ll be grilling our faculty of heavyweight, top-tier pros for specific, tested and practical advice for getting more laughs. I’ll be challenging 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.
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, $2500, $5,000, $7500, and even $10,000 for just an hour speech. If you considered back of the room product sales those figures can top $100,000 per speech. And you don’t pull those kind of bucks by 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’re NOT 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 some humor. Maybe a little. Or maybe a whole lot. Get them laughing, and the audience is yours.
Did You Hear the One Where Three Speakers Went Into a Meeting Room?
The one that came out with repeat bookings and product sales?
If you are not a comedian… you need this series.
If you ARE a comedian…
If are already an entertainer, you already know the value of humor. You know that, no matter how good you are at your craft, you could always be better. And that even 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 series will help.
If you’re a comedian – or ANY type of entertainer – you need this series.
Avoid Embarrassing Mistakes!
No matter what your goals are, you have 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?
- Time of Day
- Male/Female Audience Mix
- Closing of the Last Speaker
- Today’s headlines from the news
- The speaker who follows you…
Your faculty will teach you to avoid these pitfalls, and will help you avoid embarrassing fiascoes.
No matter what 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:
- Constantly work for improvement
- Continually invest in their programs
- 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.
Who are the “Faculty,” And How Do We Know They Are Any Good?
Meet your Host for the Series
My name is Brad Montgomery and I’ve been a comic, speaker and magician for two decades. After honing my craft in the college circuit, comedy clubs and cruise ships, I’ve performed for corporate and association groups like Microsoft, Northrop Grumman, the American Payroll Association, and IBM. 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’ve worked for thousands of audiences from 25 people to 27,000 people.
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 thing; I’m a professional comedian speaker who knows what works (and doesn’t work) in front of an audience.
I’m not just some schmo with a microphone; I know enough to be able to get the most out of our panel of experts. Because 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.
Every single person on this program can get an “appropriate” laugh pretty much any time they want to. Can you?

In 2001, Darren LaCroix, The World Champion of Public Speaking, outspoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to win that title. Since that victory, Darren has traveled the world demystifying the process of creating a powerful speech. He has roused audiences in faraway places like Oman, Malaysia, and Taiwan with his inspirational journey from first-rate chump to first-class champ, proving anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.
Darren may have been “born without a funny bone in my body,” but he possessed the desire to learn and the willingness to fail necessary to achieve his dream. The self-proclaimed “student of comedy” is living proof that humor is a skill that can be learned.
Darren interviewed CEOs and business owners who made humor part of their business plan, culling from their successful practices innovative principles that could be applied to any company. He developed an innovative technique of “customizing” humor that reveals the common frustrations and pet peeves about an organization, giving him ammunition that has audiences laughing down to their toes.
From the Boston Globe to Northwest Flight Magazine to the LA Times, Darren LaCroix has been interviewed and quoted. Classic terms like Funsuckers – people in organizations that suck the fun out of everything – are quickly becoming part of pop corporate culture. “He’s revolutionized the way we hold meetings,” a client told Business Today.com.
His successful book, Laugh & Get Rich: How to Profit from Humor in Any Business, contains interviews with corporate executives who share his philosophy. Now translated into three languages, it is a mainstay on business bookshelves.
As co-founder of The Humor Institute and a co-creator of The Humor Boot Camp, Darren directs seminars that help presenters wisely use the power of humor to “lighten up” their presentations.
An award-winning producer, his film Living and Laughing with Cancer: A Comedian’s Journey was honored at the Worldfest Houston film festival for its groundbreaking insights into humor and healing. The inspirational documentary about his best friend’s battle with cancer, brings humor and hope to those touched by life-threatening conditions.
Darren’s unique brand of humor is featured in numerous corporate training videos. His extensive list of clients include Fidelity Investments, Sheraton Hotels, IBM, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Dunkin’ Donuts, Motorola, EMC2 Corporation, CVS, and ERA Key Realty Services.
