Most radio people who attempt on-air comedy try to make themselves laugh...but not necessarily their listeners.

Your comedy isn’t being compared only to that of competing radio stations. It's being compared to the hottest TV comedies that your audience watches each night.

In this unprecedented seminar, you'll learn the secrets these comedy masters use to create, edit, and refine original mass-appeal material.

Four of the five experts were extremely successful major market jocks who relied primarily on humor.

The fifth panelist has no radio experience — but rock-solid TV comedy credentials.

In this free-wheeling session, they all give blunt, practical answers to straight questions — even "naming names" when asked for examples of well-known radio hosts whose attempts at comedy are...Well, kind of lame.
