AATH Conference in Las Vegas

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate National Humor Month than to spend four days at the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor (AATH) conference.  With nearly 200 people attending from around the globe, we spend four days laughing, learning and making new friends.

Jollytologist Allen Klein received the Doug Fletcher Lifetime Achievement Award.  His acceptance speech included a drop-in by Joan Rivers impersonator, Frank Marino.

I presented an Improv Workshop at the convention.  Also, I was on a panel with Larry Wilde, named America’s best-selling humorist by the New York Times; Marilyn Sherman, motivational speaker; Allen Klein, Jollytologist; and John Kinde, Humor Power (that’s me).  It was a coaching program titled:  How to Add Power, Punch, and Pizzazz to Your Humor Presentations.

Next year’s AATH conference is April 22-25, 2010, at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, Anaheim, California.
