“Make ’em LAUGH is invaluable. I am not a naturally funny person,
but after listening to the advice of the eight experts
I find myself actually thinking in a more comedic way.”
~ Celeste Longacre, Author and Syndicated Radio Personality
Have you ever sat in awe of a stand-up comedian or conference speaker who made the audience laugh all the way down to their toes? Did you ever wish you could do that? Well, you can! Because humor is a learned skill.
In high school, Darren LaCroix was dubbed “the least likely to ever be funny.” But one day he heard these words from motivational speaker Brian Tracy, “What would you dare to dream if you knew you wouldn’t fail?”
“A comedian!” Darren thought.
Darren’s friends and family thought he was crazy. In fact, the first time Darren ever made his brother laugh was when he told him he wanted to be a comedian! You see, they were comparing Darren to stand-up comedians like Seinfeld, Robin Williams, and Carson–people already at the top of their profession.
Too many times we let other people define our success. Darren LaCroix did not. And in 2001, Darren “outspoke” 25,000 contestants from 14 countries in an international speech contest and was crowned the World Champion of Public Speaking.
How did he do it? How can you do it?
“Before I was a great speaker, I was a phenomenal student of humor.”
~ Darren LaCroix
Would you agree that funny people think differently? If so, would it make sense that if you wanted to be funnier you needed to start thinking the way funny people think? That is exactly what this Laff Pack is all about. It is a way to jump start finding your funny bone! It answers the questions and challenges of humor students. For example:
Get the crucial basics that I got from my humor and comedy mentors. This is a live recording of workshop I did for my own Toastmasters Club.

Before I learned to teach humor I sat down with my mentors and asked them the questions I had about learning to be funnier. Sitting at the feet of masters it is amazing what you can learn. Sit down with me as I ask the tough to pros with decades of stage time making people laugh. You’ll gain insights from:

Being present and “in the moment” is imperative to making people laugh. This too is a skill that can be learned. It is OK to be nervous, but if you are in your head and not “authentic” it can spell disaster. Before Darren was a comedian or speaker, he was an improv actor. The skills he learned there still serve him every time he gets on stage today.
• Improv techniques to develop confidence
• Darren’s 4 magical “mindset” questions
• Play-by-play a game you can use everyday to become more present
This collection of tools and stories will serve as a blueprint for business success while you enjoy the process. Darren sat down with CEO’s from large to small companies that use humor as part of their business plan. These same principles can be applied to your personal life as well.
You’ll learn “how to” strategically use humor to:
• Build stronger relationships
• Differentiate yourself from the competition
• Sell more
“Laugh & Get Rich tells you how to get the discipline of laughter
into your business life to make your life the good life, fun life and happy life.”
