More information


power of comedy

communicating a message

where does comedy come from

human nature

look at

fight, if i look at my ancestors, they can't fight

flight, not flight

how did end up here

we're TEDheads

tailored corporate shows, incompany

what do you want to communicate?

they all hate the coffee

example ING

toiletcleaner howcome ING is firing 2000 people

sometimes get rid of the waste


wife pregnant

month later, twins

kids where to early, kids where inmature

dealt with it by humor, FAQ on Charlie & Dante, personal interview, in letters to self, look like kids but only smaller and with tubes

comedy helped during this dark period

kids where stressful

compare kids to the stressless dog

other uses of comedy


cant do jokes about it

did a show 911 forever, im American, i was in NY when it happend, currently at Boom Chicago

turned out, no one is looking for a comedian after a large tragic event, take the tragedy away of tragic situation

war on terror

WOII only took 7 years, more efficient, whole world

War on Terror already takes 10 year

use comedy to take something back


Obama vs McCain

Obama, everyone is full of hope


Sarah Palin, charming likable idiot, who works like a charm, wrote sketches on here for Saturday Night Live show

its harder to talk to people who you disagree with

how to communicate with people who support minority parties, non, TED, iPad, twitter, you can't, fight, 3rd way, run, let them laugh at a joke, haha (then they are disarmed), door open to your idea, example: "there is no global warming", God must be messing with the theromostate


people only talk/shout and don't listen to eachother

comedy van help you sneak in!
