Believe me, I know what Im talking about. Ive spent the past eight years turning hundreds of people with no experience into stand up comics. Many of my students are now professional comics, performing at comedy venues across North America, including comedy festivals like Just For Laughs, Vancouver International Comedy Festival, and the Winnipeg Comedy festival.
And dont just take my word for it. Heres what other people have to say:
David can not only write a great joke, but he is one of the few comics who can actually teach that skill to others. His unique talents make any comedy program he leads sure to be a success.
Bill Stainton, Multiple Emmy Award winning comedy writer
Who wouldve thought, a new career at 68 as a stand-up comic Thanks to David course it happened to me. 22 gigs in my first year!
Mavis Pickett, Vancouver, seniorcomic.com
David's class was the kick in the butt I needed. With visions of 'some day' trying stand-up (but not having a clue how to make that happen), I can't think of a better way to turn 'some day' into 'today'. If you have even a tiny little voice in your head that says 'try it!', then this is the class for you!
Mary-Jo Dionne, Advertising Copywriter
And Ive also coached hundreds of speakers, showing them how get tons of laughs throughout their presentations. Heres what they have to say:
Your standup comedy course has boosted my public speaking career big time: I now intersperse my "serious" material with short bursts of stand up comedy and my audiences love it and me. What a great investment your course was.
Roger Killen, Professional Speaker
With just a couple of his tips, I've been able to dramatically enhance the laughter quotient of my presentations.
Jeff Mowatt, Past President, Canadian Association of Professional Speakers
This was the best workshop on actual joke writing I have seen.
Dale Irvin, CSP, CPAE, National Speakers Association
As a trainer I attend dozens of courses every year but this was one of the all time best. Not only did I learn and retain information that I will use, it was the most fun I have had with my clothes on. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to improve their skills as trainers, speakers or improving their pick-up lines.
Layton Park, Speaker and Trainer, Author of, "Decide What You Want... Then Get Out of Your Way
Your step by step approach taught me how to create humour about any topic so I can use it in a focused, purposeful way to add energy and fun to my presentations. What a great addition to my speakers toolbox.
Pat Allan, Tesseract Consulting

One of the main differences between a high level keynoter and an entrance level speaker is the amount of laughs they get. People dont just want to be educated, they want to be entertained. No matter what your topic, its your job to make them laugh.
One of the main differences between a pro stand up comic and an amateur stand up comic is that the pro can quickly and efficiently write killer comedy material, whereas the amateur takes hours to write one decent bit.
My e-book gives you the tools to be able to write killer stand up comedy like a pro.
