Updated: May 18
You wouldn’t perform open heart surgery would you? No. Why not? Because you have no idea how. Do you know who knows how to open up hearts - smart, likable comedians. They can take a room full of strangers and open up everyone's hearts in less than a minute. Opening people’s hearts is the first goal for any skilled presenter or professional speaker. Why? Because open hearts leads to open minds.
At the end of laughter is the height of listening.
Most skilled speaker’s first tactic to open hearts is to tell an exceptionally moving, humanizing story about themself or someone else. A great story can create a powerful bridge of connection.The only drawback of story telling is first you have to have a great story to tell, and second you need the skill to tell it.
A masterful comedian on the other hand can open up a room full of hearts in less than a minute.
Mmm...just thinking outloud here. What if we could rent a world class comedian for a minute and have him or her open our audience's hearts up with their best humor and flip everyone in the room from ‘checked out’ to “feeling great.” That would be helpful, right?
But flying a comedian into our meeting would cost a lot and be a ton of work. There has to be a better way to do this? Now there is.

Not every new product is a good idea. But with the right marketing, any product can look like one.
Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco
When people aren't moving fast enough in a car, or on a project, we need to remain calm, cool and collected. But usually we lose it.
People buy on emotion and the
most popular emotion is feeling good.

My suggestion would be rather than flush another 30 minutes of your time down the drain on another Netflix episode or scouring Twitter for the latest Hashtag, peruse the hilarious comedy clips on The Perfect Comedy Clip for the surest way to win over anyone and everyone at the start of your next presentation. Become a curator of great humor off of a professional humor site curated to give you a humor advantage like you've never had before.
