David Glickman works with organizations that want to add a combination of valuable content and comic relief to their events in order to make them really fun and memorable. He combines humor and music in an exciting customized presentation unlike anything you've ever seen.

David has been a professional speaker and entertainer for over twenty five years and has presented over 2,000 programs. Before transitioning from "show business" to "business shows," he worked with everyone from The Beach Boys to Steve Martin and performed at private parties for singer Gloria Estefan and former President Jimmy Carter. He has appeared on "Evening At The Improv" and several other national television shows including the national PBS special "Miami Comedy Fest," for which he also served as the Executive Producer.

Not content to rely solely on outside opportunities for bookings during those years, David opened his very own comedy club in Miami. Despite its unlikely location in the lounge of a Howard Johnson hotel, the club grew into the most popular comedy venue in Miami. One club led to another, and eventually David was operating a chain of comedy clubs, both in South Florida and in Atlantic City casinos. His entrepreneurial skills paid off, as the clubs continued to thrive and received praise in Rolling Stone Magazine and other publications. There was a larger benefit for David, though, as the clubs served as a constant platform for his creating and customizing large volumes of material on a regular basis. This was the key to his gradual pivot from comedy stages to corporate stages.

In the late 1990's, David moved full-time into professional speaking. Since that time he has been able to share innovative strategies with his corporate audiences for creating an incredible Work-Laugh Balance. He is an expert in "finding the funny" in the wide array of companies and associations to whom he has spoken and translates that humor into a powerful keynote message that resonates with audiences everywhere.

In 2011, David received the Certified Speaking Professional designation. This is the highest earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Association, achieved by less than 10% of professional speakers. In 2016, he was inducted into the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame, a lifetime award for speaking excellence and professionalism. In additional to his live programs, David also operates "Funnier Speeches," America's only writing service that specializes in 'punching up' speeches with humor.

  • "David was PERFECT for our group. His performance was SO funny and pertinent to our audience. He promised a clean performance and he delivered! GREAT JOB!!" - Hospital Meeting Planner

  • Funny is the New Serious: Changing Your Perspective To Produce Powerful Results - Why is everyone so serious? Just look around the average workplace and you'll see most employees dealing with the stress of constant change, increased expectations, and having to do more with less. Well, the good news is that there's a successful strategy to approach these challenges. Former professional comedian David Glickman will teach you how Funny Is The New Serious. He'll show you how by changing your perspective you will experience a profound way of handling these frustrations. And you're in for a treat, because "Funny Is The New Serious" isn't so much a traditional keynote presentation as it is a full-blown, high-energy one-man show. It's got observational humor, funny visuals and props, hilarious song parodies, and a big "rock and roll" finish! Discover how to achieve a healthy "Work-Laugh Balance" simply by implementing these easy "jest practices."

  • A Dose of Healthcare Humor - Open your mouth and say "Ha!" You've never seen a funnier way of looking at Medical Technology, HIPAA, Patient Relations, Managed Care, Medical Specialists, Healthcare Bureaucracy, the Pharmaceutical Industry, Joint Commission, HCAHPS, CMS, and much more! A Dose of Healthcare Humor is designed to positively address situations and frustrations that the typical healthcare professional deals with in his or her job in an incredibly entertaining way. It's non-offensive, non-invasive humor--both clean and clever. And it qualifies for CE and CME! David Glickman puts the med in comedy and the Comedy in Medicine.

  • Custom Corporate Comedy - If you're looking for a program that's strictly entertainment, this one's for you! With Custom Corporate Comedy, no two programs are ever alike. This program of clean, clever, customized material is all about YOUR people, YOUR industry, YOUR products, YOUR services. Your group will be incredibly impressed when they realize that you have had the program created exclusively for them and for this event. David presents the most current and relevant humor for your group's specific industry or place of employment. He can also include a comedic take on any theme or initiative that your group is embracing (or resisting)!

  • Master of Ceremonies - David Glickman has more on-stage experience as a Master of Ceremonies than any other Keynote Speaker working today. In his years of owning comedy clubs, he strategically positioned himself solely in the Emcee position, so that he could control the flow of the program, complement the material of the other performers, bring the energy level of the program up or down as necessary, and "save" the show if there were any comedy "disasters." He also used those years of stage time as Emcee to refine his skills and learn the art & science of the role. (And anyone who doesn't believe that emceeing is both an art and a science hasn't done it very much.) Many meeting planners have experienced the amazing value and benefits of having David serve both as a Keynote Speaker and as the Master of Ceremonies for the entire event. It guarantees consistency for the agenda and hilarity throughout the event for the audience.
