Get Funny! (Self-Paced Tutorial)  

Learn how to use humor to speak more effectively, write better, and increase your popularity.

The ability to create humor is a skill many people don't have, yet wish they did. If you're interested in learning how to come up with jokes or witticisms on the fly, punch up dull material for an audience, or make a living as a comedy writer, this course will get you going. 

Once you've learned some of the methods of creating humor, you'll be ready to apply it to all aspects of your life. Punch up speeches and presentations so that the audience is instantly on your side. Mix laughter with learning in the classroom, and watch your students' attention spans grow. Add some humor to your web page and watch the hits explode as word gets out. Use your newfound sense of humor to entertain your friends, meet interesting people, and even make new friends! Learning should be fun, and this course is no exception. Filled with opportunities to laugh as you learn, "Get Funny" promises to be an entertaining and informative experience.
