Humorous Keynote Speaker

Need a Humorous Keynote Speaker

A humorous keynote speaker is someone who uses their authentic personal humor to engage and entertain their audience. This is because the message is delivered using a personal story; including comic relief in serious topics.

They have a keen sense of timing and delivery, and can use their comedic skills to make even the most mundane subject matter interesting and engaging. As well, they can leave the dullest audiences uplifted and motivated.

Prison Humor To Make Event Memorable

The most popular question Jerome received after leaving prison was, “Is there really a big guy named Bubba??” This is a classic. Jerome has the true answer that he reveals in his keynote. (You can also get the answer by watching this 28 second video on YouTube)

Humor is Proven Science

It is scientifically proven that stories on fraud and ethics are remembered and retained when they include humor. Ethics lessons strike a serious cord for business professionals especially when they are based on true life experiences. While prison is serious and scary, Jerome found humor in the middle of that nightmare.


Who is a humorous keynote speaker

Jerome Mayne, is one of the most highly sought after funny keynote speakers in the country. He uses true wit and passion to deliver his serious message in a humorous way. His story is serious because it involved unethical decisions that were actually fraudulent. As a result, he wound up receiving a 21 month federal prison sentence for conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.

His humor is genuine which is why his audiences find him authentic. It is natural for him because he had the best training ground. He toured the mid-western United States as a stand up comedian. This school of hard knocks gave him all the tools he needs to connect with an audience in a serious and humorous way.

Humorous Speakers Have Several Methods

Keynote speakers may use a variety of techniques to get their audience laughing, such as telling jokes, using humorous anecdotes and using physical humor. They may also incorporate multimedia elements, such as videos or slides, to enhance their presentation and keep the audience engaged. However, telling jokes is very dangerous. This is because the speaker can come across as disingenuous, fake and insincere.

Keynote speaker Frank Abagnale uses humor yet it is different than the humor of keynote speaker JEROME MAYNE. This is because Frank uses dry humor and Jerome uses authentic humor.

Most Important Things For Keynote Speakers

One hallmark of a funny keynote speaker is their ability to connect with the audience on a personal level. They may use self-deprecating humor or share personal stories to create a sense of rapport and make their audience feel comfortable.

Despite their humorous approach, a skilled humorous keynote speaker can still deliver a powerful message that resonates with their audience. They are able to balance humor with substance, and can use their comedy to drive home important points and inspire their audience to action. Keynote speakers can also train their audiences to train their brain to influence others.

Why A Funny Keynote Speaker

Overall, truly skilled humorous keynote speakers have entertaining and engaging ways to deliver messages. This is because when the presentation is funny it allows them to address serious topics, leaving their audience feeling energized, motivated and laughing.


Humorous Keynote Speakers vs. Funny Keynote Speakers

Humorous keynote speakers have a unique ability to infuse their speeches with wit and light-hearted insights that engage the audience in a professional and relatable manner. The humor they utilize is often subtle, adding a pleasant layer of entertainment that complements their key messages. On the other hand, funny keynote speakers primarily focus on laughter and entertainment, employing comedic techniques that might include jokes, impressions, or amusing anecdotes. While they also deliver valuable insights, their main aim is to create a lively and jovial atmosphere.

Choosing Between Humorous and Funny Speakers

Selecting between a humorous keynote speaker and a funny keynote speaker depends on the tone, theme, and objectives of the event. A humorous speaker often strikes a balance, adding wit to serious topics, making them more accessible without overshadowing the core message. A funny speaker, conversely, may bring a burst of energy and excitement, perfect for lightening the mood or breaking the ice. Neither approach is inherently better; instead, they offer different flavors of engagement, and the choice between them should align with the desired atmosphere and audience preferences of the event.
