Hello Friends of Virginia Currents
-- Thank you to WCVE and to John Felton for inviting me to be part of the Virginia Currents 25th anniversary celebration. I enjoyed my visit with Patty Nevadomski and her talented fun team.
Motivational Comedy as a Funny Education Speech
Event: A 2015/16 opening school district convocation for all hands on deck: administrators, staff, teachers, bus drivers.
-- Requested theme: The Power of Yes. Our school district has no cookie cutter kids – each student will require creative solutions.
-- Superintendent’s post show feedback: Perfect
Motivational Comedy as a Funny Graduation speech
Event: A 2015/16 graduation keynote at a vocational rehabilitation center in eastern Kentucky for people with physical and developmental disabilities.
Theme: Developing Your Invisible Ability: Habits cultivated pursuing a vocational degree are transferable skills for the jobs your vocational degree might lead you.
Post show feedback from vocational trainer:
Thank you for setting such a good example of how things can work out in a person’s career even though it may be a different path than what they originally planned. I agree with your point that the skills the students learn during training will carry over into whatever type of occupation they may end up doing.
Motivational Comedy as a Funny Healthcare Speech
Event: 2015/16 annual meeting for country’s largest health insurance provider.
Theme: Humor’s place in wellness: humor helps us cope, recover and grow.
Post show feedback from Health care program vice president to event’s meeting planner: Brett was truly side splitting and his serious message was taken to heart by all the participants. I can’t tell you how many folks personally mentioned to me how exceptional Brett was.
Please contact me if I can help energize your next gathering.
I hope to see you on the road.
Da capo: My closing message to the school district convocation mentioned above:
You are the solution to the homo sapiens conundrum: homo sapiens, the reasoning beings, can amass information at a rate that challenges our emotional intelligence to manage it.
A student learns today that he or she is among 7 billion inhabitants on the only planet we know of that supports multi-cellular life in a dynamic universe that is expanding at an accelerating rate and find that demoralizing asking questions like “What difference do I make?” and “Do I matter?” with “I don’t” and “No”.
But because there stands you modeling the being they can become ‘homo sapiens curans’, the reasoning being who is caring, they can perceive that same vast creation with awe and reverence proclaiming… “I say I love this”, “I say thank you, “I say yes.”
A media link
Here’s a link to a review in the Madison Eagle (Madison, Virginia) of a show I performed for the Madison County Chamber of Commerce in November 2014.
From the article...
Following dinner, keynote speaker and comedian Brett Leake entertained the audience, speaking on the importance of humor, appreciating and recognizing the little things in life and utilizing humor to make situations better before not after the fact, all while eliciting tons of laughs.
I add that these were English tons: I promise an American ton; I deliver an English ton.
I thank Kane Kashouty for the nice article and Tracey Gardner for inviting me to be part of the fun night.
