Your Presentation is a Joke: Using Humor to Maximize Your Impact (Black & White Pics)

“Humor increases persuasion’s effectiveness.” – Dr. Jim Lyttle

I am comedian/author/dudeman Marshall Chiles and I will show you step-by-step proven methodologies to help add humor to your business presentations in order to increase your persuasion, maximize your impact, and be one of the cool kids.

“I used your recommendations and absolutely crushed my sales presentation at the conference. Was told I was a stand out speaker and was really able to get the crowd engaged with some humor. You the man!” – Ryan Hughes, 360 Rick Partners

After 16 years as a comedian and comedy entrepreneur, I have taken my knowledge of comedy and business to write this book. YPIJ initially was as an introductory course for new comedians, then I adapted it for business presenters as a speech. Over the last three years, I have been able to fine-tune the lessons that easily help people be funnier on stage. What really reenforced my belief in what I have to offer happened in 2015 when the presentation form of YPIJ won an award from YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization www.ypo.org). YPO is one of the most elite executive groups on the planet, and they not only hired me, but honored Your Presentation is a Joke as award worthy which helped me finally feel acceptance.

If you have a business presentation, then you want to stand out, make people pay more attention and give you their money. I submit humor is the way to reach those goals. In this book you will learn proven techniques from adding funny images, to finding the funny in (almost) any subject, to writing self-deprecating jokes, and more. So whether you’re a seasoned public speaker, a new speaker, or you just think I’m pretty and want to give me money, you should get Your Presentation is a Joke.

  1. My presentation was the best joke of my career This book does exactly what it says it will do – successfully outlines how to captivate audiences with humor. A friend of mine gave me her copy when I told her about this department meeting I had coming up, and skimming through the main chapters on the plane ride to the meeting was all I needed. The department found my (very light-hearted) roast of the CMO hysterical, and when I tell you that the silliness of the presentation opened high-level networking doors, I truly mean it! I ended up…

  2. WHO KNEW COMEDY WAS SO SERIOUS! Who knew comedy was such a serious business with clear rules and guidelines of engagement? Certainly not me!

Marshall Chiles shows you just exactly how to add humor to your business presentations and then how to take it up a notch to real comedy. This book is clearly organized, with one chapter building on the prior one to make for easy…
