About This Class

Never mind WD40. Humor is the universal lubricant! A well-told funny story is the perfect entrée into business and social situations. It’s a great way to get noticed on social media. Being able to get potential clients to laugh is the first step into making them actual clients. And with a good quip at the ready, you can diffuse a potentially tense situation. In this class, you’ll learn how to think like a funny person; to see the world from new perspectives. Students will learn a few (of many) humor techniques, and in the end, create a 500-800 word humorous essay.
