humor enthusiast

Tap into your natural humor persona and become (more) memorable, improve productivity, relieve stress and simply have more fun, here’s how…

enthusiast, your humor is a superpower

Your Mantra - ""Humor is everywhere, if you’re simply willing to look for it."

As a Humor Enthusiast, you enjoy the humor of everyday life, whether that’s watching something funny or someone just attempting to make you smile. You recognize the value of finding joy no matter what comes your way.

Other people enjoy having you around as you’re someone who brings levity and lightheartedness to the world.

Like Paula Abdul from American Idol, Andy Richter from the Conan O’Brien show, or Buddy from the movie Elf, you find happiness in both grand gestures and life’s tiny treasures.

In a world that seems to be getting increasingly more cynical and enraged, surrounding ourselves with people like you, who are quick to laugh and boost the mood with their positivity, is something we should all be doing

but it’s not all rosy in the land of the Enthusiast

Do you find yourself laughing at something someone says only to realize no one else is laughing with you?

Do you often hear people tell you “It’s not that funny,” or “I wasn’t kidding” because you laugh waaaaay more than people think it deserved or at jokes that they considered inappropriate?

I bet your humor has gotten you into trouble once or twice before, hasn’t it?

Here you are, just wanting to have a laugh, because, you know, life is meant to be fun… but the one’s around you somehow see it as an inability to have a serious conversation.

here’s the good news! 🎉

Now that you know your humor persona, I, An(Drew) can help you master it in a way that will allow you to fully embrace your sense of humor without having to censor yourself or hinder your relationships with friends, family and coworkers.

what makes me so confident I can teach you?

I’ve been teaching people how to be funny’er for over a decade.

My TEDx talk has been viewed more than 14 million times. And I’ve had the privilege of working with such clients as Microsoft, the FBI, the U.S. Navy, ESPN, PepsiCo, GE, and the International Association of Canine Professionals (yes there were dogs in the audience).

Don’t worry, I got you.

humor is a language we all speak… 

Whether it’s “hahaha” in English, “jajaja” in Spanish, “55555” in Thai or “wwww” in Japanese, humor is a language we all speak.

I know this because I’ve spoken to hundreds of thousands of people all around the world. And even though the language changes, the message always resonates

Humor connects. It builds trust, defuses tension and creates a positive shared experience that brings people closer together. Humor forces you to put your guard down, to stop being defensive and become more receptive. It’s like a little reminder in your brain that says “let’s have an open mind here.”

And humor is just so… much… fun… What is laughter if not the physical expression of joy?

so how do we unlock this incredible skill?

I went ahead and distilled down all of the actionable information in all of my books, keynote presentations and workshops. And condensed it down into a short, insightful and actionable course.

It is exactly what I would teach you if you were sitting here, next to me.

to sweeten the pot even more, I'm also giving you access to...


humor enthusiast booklet

To ensure Humor Enthusiast, like yourself, have every chance of success in incorporating humor at work and at home immediately, I’ve put together a very simple booklet.

It’s only 20 pages long, and I designed it specifically to give you just enough to get you some quick wins immediately but not so much that you’re left feeling overwhelmed .

It is immensely valuable when used by itself, but substantially amplified when paired with the Humor Enthusiast Essentials Course.
(not unlike the perfect cheese and wine pairing.)


remotely funny

A virtual comedy special my team and I filmed during the lockdown.
It’s full of stories, anecdotes, and one of my favorite jokes I’ve ever written (it’s about my wife and I getting married on Zoom and it is truly groan-worthy).

why others like you have joined our courses

“I want to be able to captivate people when I talk. Too often I start to tell a story and get interrupted.

Deep down everyone wants to be listened to as well. Perhaps humor will add that edge that keeps them hanging.”


“I’m tired of thinking, “What I should have said was….” I believe laughter is the shortest distance between two hearts.

This is a soft skill I wish I had been born with – but since I wasn’t – I’m all about learning it.


“There appears to be a disconnect between my brain (which thinks it’s funny) and my mouth (which convolute the message into something lame) or my fingers (who freeze, stumble or mumble.)”


“I find it frustrating that I’m not able to connect with people at the level I’d like.

Language is a structure of thoughts and humor is the penthouse."


“I want to learn more on how to change language for real change, to be funnier or more relatable, to make a case for those who are not being heard.”


“I am afraid to trust myself and speak up freely. But perhaps there is a tool to change it – the humor. This is what I’ve realized now. In humor I trust.“


“We take everything too seriously, especially at work.

Then I realized that the Megan in front of the PowerPoint was not at all like Megan chatting at the coffee machine and that both myself and my colleagues liked coffee Megan better.”


I work in dementia care. I see fear, pain, exhaustion, and depression every day.

I took it upon myself to greet everyone with a smile and a joke to help relieve that situation as best as I could. Over time I found it began to have an impact and people began to look forward to a daily joke.”


“I would like to transform the meetings in the company’s medical team area into a light, humorous, and yet full of content dialogues.

I believe that with humor and comedy, it is possible to take care of people… especially people who take care of other people.”


“I work in a serious business, but I want to incorporate humor in useful ways and to show my personality more without losing credibility.“


“I need more laughter and light in my life. Everything about the world is so serious. I need a break.”


“I want to be a more interesting person. Funny people are always fun to be around, and I want to be someone who others want to be around more.“
