Bring Your Show: How To Write Humor For The Spoken Word By Mark Whitney
My 2015 lecture analyzes the words of Steve Jobs, Barack Obama, Brian Regan, Joan Rivers, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Rick Cleveland, Monica Lewinsky, Jimmy Tingle, and Dananjaya Hettiarachchi
If I had this lecture the day I committed myself to becoming a spoken word artist who has enjoyed success on every conceivable platform, it would have saved me years of struggle in my first life.
In this one hour lecture I analyze words spoken by: comedians Brian Regan, Jimmy Tingle, and Joan Rivers; politicians Barack Obama, Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders; entrepreneur, Steve Jobs; the activist and writer, Monica Lewinsky; the Emmy Award winning writer of West Wing, and House of Cards executive producer, Rick Cleveland; and Toastmasters’ World Champion of Public Speaking, Dananjaya Hettiarachchi, who was kind enough to drop the unsolicited review below, shortly after this video was made public in 2015.
"If you want to know the go-to video to understand how great speakers win their audience, then this is it. Check out Mark Whitney, who presents a fantastic lecture that will leave you with some amazing insights. He does this by dissecting the speeches of several world class presenters across different industries, (including my own speech 'I See Something’ ) If there is one video I could recommend to you, to get the real essence of public speaking, THIS would be it ! Happy Learning." ~Dananjaya Hettiarachchi, Toastmasters’ 2014 World Champion Of Public Speaking
