How to Use Comedy in Your Speaking

With Ron Tite

Have you ever gotten on stage and told a joke, only for it to fall flat? Or maybe you’ve avoided cracking a joke from the stage because you’re worried you’ll hear the proverbial crickets chirping in the audience!

Here to talk about how to integrate comedy into your speaking gigs is Ron Tite, a hilarious and accomplished businessman. Ron certainly keeps himself busy: he works in several different areas while still speaking regularly about marketing and other aspects of the business.

On episode 45 of The Speaker Lab, Ron shares how he became a speaker, and how that skill has afforded him the unique opportunity to drive business revenue. In addition, Ron also shares his guidance on speaking bureaus, how he began his comedy career, and how to position yourself as an engaging speaker. Listen in to hear all of that and so much more on this episode of The Speaker Lab!
