Now more than ever we need a good laugh, and this virtual interactive hour does just that! Bring your jokes, funny stories, and creativity to this presentation using humor to have fun, reduce anxiety, and press your emotional reset button. Laughter will reduce your stress, improve your outlook, and lead to better quality of life. As a college professor and professional stand-up comedian, Dave Rattigan has been making people laugh for nearly three decades, in the classroom and on Sirius Satellite radio as well as live comedy clubs. He’s also worked in less traditional venues like hospitals, libraries, a parking lot, warehouses, business lobbies, gazebos and lots of places he’d like to forget! He has used humor to diffuse tense situations and deal better with stress. Dave uses his stand-up material to lighten the mood, reviews the benefits of a good laugh, and then leads the group through simple improv, funny stories, shared jokes, and other exercises to create an always-fun comedy experience.
Dave Rattigan is a professional standup comedian whose CD has played on Sirius Satellite and other radio networks. He’s also appeared on NESN and the syndicated Steve Katsos Show, and performed live at top clubs in New England and as far away as Kilkenny, Ireland. By day he’s a writer and professor at UMass-Lowell and Northeastern Community College, where he uses laughter to promote learning by keeping his students relaxed and engaged.
