Everyone can be funny if they can follow a process.
I'll never forget a Chris Rock Interview that I listened to. That was when it dawned on me. Comedians don't just get up on stage and start making people laugh. They follow a rigorous process. The discovery lead me to the San Francisco Comedy College and introduced me to my guest, Rich Stimbra. Rich helped me learn that everyone is funny and he taught me the creative process that comedians use to develop jokes and perform stand up comedy. I use many of these tools in my business meetings and sales conversations today.
In this episode Rich and I talk about:
- Using humor in business to create rapport and relieve tension
- The process of creating comedy
- How do you write a joke
- A great idea for your next company event
