The Improv

While some people are worried about the effects of the B.P. oil spill, the effectiveness of President Obama and the outcome of the world cup others are enjoying and living life to their fullest. People always want to laugh, be entertained and be taken away from reality for a mental break. Whether it is going to see Toy Story 3, seeing the Broadway hit “Wicked” or going to see a comedy show at The Improv, people need to laugh and leave their worries behind.

I am privileged to do just that for people. My comedy magic shows (based out of Dallas Fort Worth Texas) has been seen around the world. For a trade show traffic stopper in Las Vegas, an awards banquet in Portland, Oregon, and for festival entertainment with my Make Believe Circus.

And, as a motivational speaker, my job is to remind people that they have the ability to do anything. We become what we dwell on. I’d like to inspire people to dwell upon the best things in life. As a result, life will be the best!

If your company, non-profit organization or church is looking for something fun, exciting, interesting and amazing… please give them my information! David Hira – comedy magic, illusion, keynote speaker and motivational speaker. I’ll do my very best! Many thanks…

Clean Entertainment for Corporate Audiences

After a recent show I called my client to say thank you and to get feedback. “They all love you and your show… we’re glad we didn’t go with a comedian.” Ah, I hear this all to often. What is the reason behind this common thread?

Safety.

Corporate events and customer appreciation events are all about having fun and adding a little excitement. The last thing anyone wants is there to be that “oh no…” moment when a performer says the wrong (stupid) thing in front of the crowd that the corporation is trying to “win over”. Suggestive or sexual humor or innuendos are never appropriate. Keeping it clean, fun, upbeat and positive is my motto. Political humor, religious humor, ethnic references or references to the economy is neither funny nor appropriate at a corporate gathering.

The client continued, “We once had a comedian and had to tell them to please leave out any dirty stuff or political references as our crowd does not take kindly to those types of remarks. The comedian PROMISED to leave that material out but he didn’t.” Oh my. How do you solve that?

I promise my clients two simple things. There is NEVER any suggestive, political, religious or ethnic humor in anything I do…not on stage nor off stage. You will NEVER have to ask me to leave that type of material out of my act because it was NEVER in my act to begin with. Secondly, I offer a full 100% money-back guarantee. If you audience is not completely delighted with my performance you pay no performance fee.

It is more important than ever to treat your staff, your customers and your potential customers with complete respect. Respecting their personal viewpoints means never making fun of things that they may hold dear. Being sure that your speakers and your entertainers are committed to this is essential. Check references before you hire your entertainer or speaker. Be sure they have a guarantee. Insist on seeing recent video of their performances. Get everything in writing.
