    NSA NTx Laugh Track: Funny You Should Say That!

     ANYONE CAN LEARN TO BE FUNNY!

    If you’re looking to lighten up your material, NSA NTx Laugh Track is for you!

    Humor is a powerful force for presenters.  Come have fun as we laugh and learn our way to a seriously funny process.  Humor is a science and an art form. When you apply the funny formulas to your speeches, you can really see and feel the difference in your delivery…and so can your audiences!

    NSA NTx Laugh Track is for YOU if you would like to:

           “Funny Up” your stuff      

    •  Say the right zinger at just the right time?
    •        Want to be more memorable?
    •        Need to punch up your current speech?
    •        Want to interject energy into your audience with a funny line or story?

     

    Kelli Vrla, CSP will be your emcee and comedy guide—along with a few surprise

    comedy guests to take us on a behind the scenes look into crafting the funny.

    We’ll have two workshop sessions, plus a graduation ceremony in a comedy club setting—so you can invite your friends to witness (endure) your newly polished routine! Hey—that’s what friends are for, right? To support you in your quest for the jest! Of course, all NSA-NT friends are invited to enjoy our graduation, as well. 

     

    Sign up NOW for both NSA NTX LAUGH TRACKS and we’ll see you on stage!

    1 - Wednesday, March 22nd 

    2 - Thursday, April 6th, both 6:30-9:30.
