"There is nothing like the feeling of making an audience laugh."
-Darren LaCroix
Finally, a place where professionals can go to learn how to be funnier. We’re not talking about learning to tell dirty jokes. We are talking about learning how to get more laughs in a professional setting to make your message more digestible! When they are laughing, they are listening. Discover secrets to create your own unique humor that you can use again and again.
Do You Wish You Were Funnier?
Memorable humor takes public speaking to the next level! During this 3-day VIRTUAL Master Workshop, Darren LaCroix, Las Vegas headliner, Kevin Burke,  and stand-up comedian, Stephanie McHugh, will personally guide you through a fast-paced, laughter-rich Humor Boot Camp®. You’ll leave this trademarked workshop never looking at laughter the same way again. Darrenteed.

Lacing your presentations with humor will not only cement a feeling of positivity and vibrancy between you and your audience, but it will also create a human bond that is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. Imagine walking off the stage to thunderous applause and a roll of laughter. Darren, Kevin, and Stephanie, will give you proven techniques with helpful documentation in a polished and professional manner. This is your opportunity to master the art of humor! You will leave this live workshop with the process for creating your own unique humor from your personal experiences, as well as confidence and your own new materials that you create on the spot.
By committing to training with Las Vegas headliner, Kevin Burke, stand-up comedian, Stephanie McHugh, and World Champion Public Speaker, Darren LaCroix, you will walk away with the tools to get more laughs in your very next presentation. Public speaking with style and finesse is more than having a compelling story; it is how you present it. Join Darren and Kevin in beautiful Las Vegas, and learn the proven process for getting laughs based on their decades of experience. Have you tried figuring it out on your own? Without a road map, it's easy to get lost and frustrated and end up with lackluster results.

Darren, Stephanie, and Kevin will arm you with the essential tools to springboard your humorous speaking and find your funny bone. You will learn how to create your presentations more easily, have a deeper impact, and leave a more memorable message wrapped in laughter. This step-by-step process is based on over 40 years of experience. 
Why Does Being Funnier Matter?
Do you want to get and keep your audience’s attention? What is better proof of that than laughter? If they’re laughing, they're learning. What if you could bring a boring subject to life? That would separate you from the pack for sure. It also increases the audience’s retention rate. Do it for them!
  • More bookings
  • Get rebooked more often
  • Sell more in the back of the room
  •  More fun for them & you!
Consider this: you are an event planner, and you have to choose a speaker. Speaker A is a leading expert and has great content. Speaker B is also a leading expert, has great content, and is funny. Whom would you hire? Meetings and seminars are often boring. Let your audience laugh while they learn, and you’re more likely to get asked back. Being funny will not only increase your rehire rate but will also boost your back-of-room sales as well. Who wouldn’t want to follow you if you make them laugh? It just makes being on stage more fun too!

Can You Really Learn to Be Funnier?
Darren LaCroix is living proof that you can. His journey of becoming a comedian, even though he wasn’t funny, is not only ironic, but it’s also the truth. He proved that you can learn to be funny. He bombed miserably at a comedy club in Boston in 1992. Fast forward to 2001 when he out-spoke 25,000 contestants to become the World Champion of Public Speaking. He created one of the most talked about speeches in the history of the contest, and it was funny! Part of the secret he discovered was that comedians use humor formulas and templates that they don’t want the public to know about. Come discover the inside scoop from two humor pros.
What Makes Funny People Funny?
Would you agree that funny people think differently? They do. So, if you want to be funnier you have to think the way funny people think. Doesn’t that make sense? This Humor Boot Camp® is packed with over ten laughter-generating exercises. These exercises are designed to change the way you think and look at things. They will train your brain to see things funny. By the end of these 2 days, you’ll not only see humor potential in more places, but you’ll also know how to deliver it again and again. You’ll never look at humor the same way again.
 What if I'm Not Funny?
Perfect. You are like Darren when he started out. Darren started his career at an open mic night at a Boston comedy club. He was horrible. That night’s headline comedian literally told Darren as he left the stage, “Don’t quit your day job.” He was never told he was funny, and he had no stage presence whatsoever. In fact, at the Humor Boot Camp® you will see a video clip of his very first time on stage. That clip is guaranteed to inspire you.
Because Darren learned the hard way, he is quick to point out the shortcuts to make your journey light years faster than his. He has taken principles from the comedy world and adapted them to help you create clean humor you can use in your presentations again and again. Darren has been telling one of his jokes for over 20 years, and it still works every time! Because this is an interactive experience and not a sit-and-listen seminar, you’ll build your own humor confidence during the course of this workshop .
 What if I'm Already Funny?
Even better. You are more like Kevin when he started out in the comedy and clowning world. Though Kevin was naturally funny, he too had to learn essential humor principles and structure to be able to make people laugh every night in his Vegas show. This workshop is designed so that you will walk away understanding why you are naturally funny. This will enable you to create much more planned  humor. You will discover how to create the kind of humor you can use again and again.
Or Stephanie McHugh, who after doing comedy less than a year in her 30s, with two small children, won a trip to the Las Vegas Comedy Festival as a finalist in the Laugh Across America Contest. She kept radio listeners laughing on the Steve and Stephanie Morning Show on KOOL 105 in Denver, CO. She was also on Nick at Nite's TV Show "America's Funniest Mom".  

In addition to stand up, Stephanie is now helping entrepreneurs and speakers add humor to their own presentations so they can connect with their audiences. Stephanie is dedicated to helping people who have a message and knows how humor can help their message resonate with their audience.
 Forever Change How You Look at Laughter
Get out of your head and into the moment. If you can’t be in the moment, you just can’t be funny. Period. A crucial part of delivery is making an audience laugh. Most people don’t realize it, but improv is essential to getting laughs.

“If you are in your head, your emotions are dead.” - Darren

Both Kevin and Darren have improv backgrounds. Before stand-up comedy and speaking, Darren played a groom in an improv, dinner theater wedding show. He credits the stage presence he has now to be direct result of his improv experience.

Kevin has headlined the Vegas show Defending the Caveman over 4,000 times. He was a comedian and a clown for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Together Kevin and Darren will go back to their roots and walk you through a series of improv games throughout the workshop. You’ll be able to take the ones you like and continue to use them to improve your improv muscle.
