"LEAD WITH LAUGHS"
PACKAGES

 

Open Mic (1-on-1 only)

Stand-up comedy is one of the obscure art forms where you can only rehearse in front of a live audience. Performing at open mics is a low stakes way to learn the basics of joke writing, stage presence, and how to deal with bombing (there will be a lot of bombing). 

This package will center on the basics, introducing you to the concept of humor leadership in the form of quick, 1-on-1 coaching calls and action steps, as well as giving you some ideas for how to implement simple daily practices. Once you complete the "homework," schedule a follow-up call and we'll continue your leadership journey, one 15-minute call at a time, giving you enough of a taste to decide whether you're interested in continuing your comedy journey.

Includes​​​

  • Initial 30-minute exploratory call

  • Humor Leadership 101 introductory video

  • Up to 4 15-minute 1-on-1 private coaching calls per month

  • PDF workbook with simple action steps to take between calls

 

Emcee (10-day)

Your open mic abilities have improved and you've grown as a performer, so now it's time to learn an entirely new skillset: being an emcee. When a comedian starts getting booked at clubs, they typically start as the host, and as host, it's your job to connect with the audience while making everybody else performing look good.

This package will span the course of two weeks, or ten workdays, and introduce your team to the concept of humor leadership, beginning with an opening keynote for your full organization. Your team will learn basic techniques of using humor as a skill for creating connection, developing an altruistic mindset, (aka Additude), easily actionable ideas for improving workplace vibes, integrating humor into sales and outreach strategies, and more.

 Includes​​​

  • Initial 30-minute exploratory call

  • Opening keynote

  • Half-day strategic workshop

  • Follow-up 30-minute coaching call

  • Unlimited email consulting

  • Humor Department strategic planning session

  • PDF workbook 

 

Feature (30-day)

The feature act is charged with setting the headliner up for success. Typically, a feature will perform a 15-30 minute routine, while having an additional 15-30 minutes in their back pocket, just in case the planned material isn't working. Though the feature is an integral part of the show, the audience is there to see the headliner. Often, the feature travels with the headliner because their styles complement one another.

This package will span the course of 30 days, and take your team deeper into the concept of humor leadership, beginning with an opening keynote for your full organization, and closing with a customized corporate comedy experience. Your team will learn basic techniques of using humor as a skill for building trust, deepening communication skills, overcoming fear, exploring your creativity, dealing with difficult people, and more.

 Includes​​​

  • Initial 30-minute exploratory call

  • Opening keynote

  • Half-day strategic workshop

  • Humor Leadership 201 Webinar

  • 2 follow-up 30-minute coaching calls

  • 2 office hours

  • Unlimited email consulting

  • 2 Humor Department strategic planning sessions

  • PDF workbook 

 

Headliner (90-day)

By the time a typical comedian becomes a headlining act, he or she has been performing for around ten years from dingy bars to prolific clubs in major markets, taking lump after lump along the way. The typical headlining comic performs a 45-minute to 1 hour (or more) routine, weaving in and out of topics and jokes that have been honed for YEARS. This is where the comedian gets to stretch their legs, but as always, the goal must be to send their audience home happy.

This package will span the course of three months, and take your team into the inner-workings of humor leadership, beginning and ending with  keynotes for your full organization, and featuring a customized corporate comedy experience showcasing your own team members. Your team will start with the basics, and work into more complex techniques of using humor as a skill for building resilience, mental agility, and comfort with uncertainty, deepening collaborative skills, developing new strategies for dealing with stress, giving (and receiving) feedback, unlocking the benefits of vulnerability, and more.

 Includes​​​

  • Initial 30-minute exploratory call

  • Opening and closing keynotes

  • 3 half-day strategic workshops

  • 3 webinars

  • 5 follow-up 30-minute coaching calls

  • 5 office hours

  • 3 First Monday Morning Creative Meetings

  • Unlimited email consulting

  • 3 Humor Department strategic planning sessions

  • PDF workbook 

  • Customized corporate comedy experience featuring your team members

  • Professionally shot and edited video of comedy show

  • Pitch meeting for new, lighthearted training/onboarding video

To truly have a profound, lasting impact on your workplace culture and get the most out of your team, your leadership team must integrate daily practices to strengthen their creativity, resilience, and collaboration skills. From 1-on-1 consulting conversations, to webinars and workshops, to guidance in setting up your organization's very own humor department, we'll be collaborating in lockstep to develop a strategy that works for your team. 

Starting from the basics, we'll work side-by-side until you've transformed your organization into one ready to face the challenges of the 21st century, while having some fun along the way!
