Funny Launch Party

We Bring the Funny hosted a Funny Launch Party at Theatre South Playhouse (The Marketplace at Dr. Phillips, 7601 Della Dr. Suite 15, Orlando, FL 32819). The event was a way to introduce people to their new company which brings comedy solutions to corporate meeting and events. The  idea is that they would apply the tenants of improvisation to the workplace by training staff and executives. As they put it, "Even Eric from purchasing can do it." They also offer customized written materials like sketches, jokes, commercials, and top 10 lists.

Pam offered ideas for one one the improv sketches, having the comedians work with her home town of Maquoketa, Iowa. I was impressed. The comedian must have been in the hallway researching the small Iowa town, because little known facts about the region were brought up in the comedy sketch, though he couldn't quite pronounce the name itself. The bottom line is that this was a fun and inspired evening of comedy.

The three players in We Bring the Funny were: Steve Purnick, writer, actor, improviser, and corporate entertainer; Mary Thompson Hunt, actress, improviser comedian, teacher, corporate facilitator trainer, and host; and Jake Lockwood, a freelance writer, director, educator, and actor.  With a combined 12,000 years of experience in corporate entertainment, the team is, smart, clean, professional, and (on most occasions), funny. They are dedicated to bringing laughter, fun, and energy to live meetings and events. I can vouch for the fact that I laughed all night.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
