The Laughter Factor

Michael Varma
, DTM, and David Osborn presented two The Laughter Factor workshops at Chapman University and two more sessions at Rio Hondo College. All classes were standing-room-only.

The Laughter Factor workshop taught attendees how and when to add humor to their presentation. Students were able to easily identify the three parts of a joke by using the Triangle of Timing, learned how to effectively tell a joke following the 3 Ps – purpose, pace and pause – and created their own joke with the Rule of Three. Participants also received a Humor File Starter Sheet for future presentations, which included several humor resources.

Yes, analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog: few people are interested, and the frog dies. But if you take the time to learn why jokes are funny, you can be funnier than you are today.

FREE Humor Lesson
If you think you’re NOT funny or have been told, “You’re NOT funny!” or have said, “I can’t remember jokes” or “I always forget the punch line?” then take advantage of this first lesson for free.

Transform your thought process. If you think you’re not funny, then congratulations, you’re not. Prophecy fulfilled. From this point you move forward. Your mind is a very powerful tool and it will do what you tell it to do.

Say the phrase, “I’m funnier than I was yesterday.” From now until the end of eternity, if someone says, “You’re bad at telling jokes,” shake their hand and say, “Thanks for the compliment. Yesterday I was worse.” Instant improvement.
