About The Talk

Three lessons from the art of stand up comedy that can make your presentations bulletproof.

In this talk Travis will dive into the presentation secrets of stand up comedians. Learn to hold an audience's attention, engagement, and interest while presenting your work. Stand up comedians encounter many of the same situations and communication requirements as many other creative professionals, but they have developed tools for keeping cool in a hot room and winning over a tough crowd. Learn to focus the mind of the listener on the most important details using punchlines and callbacks. This talk includes practical lessons and insights from bombing (and recovering) on stage.
