Humor

I love creating fun things from whatever inspires me. My goal is to make a powerful point and make people laugh at the same time. And as a comedian, storyteller and idea creator – I love mashing up things in fun, new ways! Here are some fun things to enjoy and share.

In my memories… sxsw 2019 popped up.

I got to be in the audience with the fab Henry Winkler for an acting masterclass where he coached people through short bits.

The thing I am reminded of - and I first learned this through improvisation - is ‘play a scene real.’

Allow yourself to be surprised and be in discovery in the moment.

The way I think about this in speaking or even comedy is to be so anchored in the present that my playfulness - while a little scripted - can be so in the moment that I am in tune with the audience.

Be surprised at your own choices in the moment - rather than remember your point, for example - what if you riffed and allows yourself to discover something on the moment.

The art of knowing your arc and stories and letting go in the moment is acting and improvisation.

It’s playfulness through you. Allow yourself to make character discoveries and big choices in the moment so even you are surprised.

Powerful and real.

Using more humor in your work and on Linkedin...

I was interviewed for a collaboration on @linkedin by the news and editorial folks.

Here's why humor matters

How to think about it

Things you can do that can lower your fear (be human - find what works for you)

Humor is for you and your joy AND to connect with others

And it's important for our mental wellness

A special shout-out to funny women everywhere. I see you.
