Humor Resources

Becoming a more humorous speaker takes an investment of time and money.  Here are a few resources you might consider.  Some are free, some are not.  The investment you’ll make is worth it.  Once you’ve learned and internalized the techniques, they’ll continue to pay off for years.  And your upgraded skills will provide you a new platform from which you’ll continue your growth.
