Perry Kurtz has been a full time (never had a day job) working comedian of 46 years appearing at most major comedy clubs across America, private & corporate events, women's groups, military bases in Asia, foster homes, weddings, even a funeral. Fifteen years ago he began focusing on bringing his interactive comedy to the Shut-ins, the Seniors & Convalescents. About 7 years ago, a few of the activity directors and administrative managers mentioned that he was very motivational for his audience. He got them laughing. He also taught THEM to be a little funny in their lives, and gave them a reason to, "Never Give Up!".
As a comedy instructor for over 25 years with over 2500 students, Perry realized that his mission was to motivate people to have a Better Life with Humor.
Every "talk" is created to enlighten and subtlety motivate the crowd, as well as teach them why and how things are funny, to make their lives a little more fun. Joy is needed during these hard times. When you laugh, OR make others laugh, you feel better about YOUR life. His goal is to include the audience is his show by interacting with them, as well as enthusing them through humor.

“The workplace needs laughter. According to research from institutions as serious as Wharton, MIT, and London Business School, every chuckle or guffaw brings with it a host of business benefits. Laughter relieves stress and boredom, boosts engagement and well-being, and spurs not only creativity and collaboration but also analytic precision and productivity.”
Harvard Business Review
Through Humor there is improved communication, and this is very important in the workplace. Sales people that can be humorous on the phone, close more sales. Understanding relative humor, which is based on what is happening NOW, makes everyone happy.
