Combining his background as a project manager at Procter & Gamble with his experience as an international comedian, Andrew’s program are engaging, entertaining, and most important, effective.

Lots of fun! Very enjoyable. Sort of reminds of some English people who have a habit of trying to 'whoosh' things right over your head. Some of it I got, some of it I didn't. Sometimes it doesn't even skip on my brain becuz it's flying too high for me. What am I gonna do? Send up some F16s to strike at the 'terrorist' parts of funny which I don't understand? It can't be done. They will be up there for a very long time. Hopefully forever searching for something they cannot find. F16 to base: We cannot find the enemy humor. Running very low on fuel here. base to f16: Sending up planes to refuel. Humor is sometimes notoriously difficult to track down. Keep looking, you may be up there for centuries. Don't give up! If someone in your crew shows any signs of un-approved humor please shoot them - even if that results in your own plane being shot down. Maybe you land in arms of a Russian mama who doesn't believe in war. Maybe she sweeten you up a little bit. Ya never know.

Summary of this video: 1. Humor is a skill that you can learn through practice 2. Humour is a way through which you can connect with other people but starting a conversation 3. It helps you look at the world with a less serious attitude and it can be a great companion no matter where you stand in your life right now 4. The world's not going to fall apart due to your bad jokes, so go ahead and let it out, you surely will get better with practice 5. Humor allows you to vent out your stress, even if you do not want to say anything out loud you could always be funny in your head 6. It all starts with a choice, a choice to be funny to look at the whole wide world with a different lens

Eric Fieldman
Eric Fieldman Mês atrás
Yeah, but that's not what he's doing. He's explaining the process of getting better at comedy and how to use it productively. I know you're going to accuse me of the same thing here, but since jokes are just a subversion of expectations, if somebody said "saying this thing made the audience think I would follow it with this, but then I said this" that's an example of explaining a joke in an unfunny way. He's describing the big picture of "here's some things to think about to eventually get funnier."
