Judson Laipply promises to do two things: make you laugh and make you think. And for the last seven years, his passion for both has entertained and educated audiences all over the world. Judson is an award-winning speaker and performer who utilizes a phenomenon labeled "Inspirational Comedy" to blend the realities of life with side-splitting humor.

After graduating from Bluffton University with a BA and from Bowling Green State University with a Master's degree, Judson Laipply burst onto the professional speaking scene and has quickly become a breath of fresh air in a sometimes suffocating world. His presentations are down to earth and highly motivational, creative and appealing, humorous and thought provoking, lively and enriching.

Judson's artistic and refreshing approach to viewing life and accepting the changes it brings, combined with his energetic demeanor and playful stage presence, never fails to surprise and inspire audiences. Drawing from his vast array of experiences that include working on a cruise ship, at a camp in Colorado, as a certified Aerobics instructor, as a part-time auctioneer, teaching college courses, being a published poet, and writing a weekly column, he can relate to audiences of all ages from all over the country.

In March of 2001, Judson performed for the first time in public a finale that would one-day take the world by storm. After mixing together 12 popular dance songs from the last 50 years Judson debuted "The Evolution of Dance™" and it instantly became a crowd favorite. Five years and 18 songs later, Laipply placed a video of the 30 song six-minute "The Evolution of Dance" on little known site called YouTube. No one could have predicted what followed.

In the next few months the video became a viral sensation and was passed from e-mail to e-mail, posted in countless blogs, discussed on endless talk shows and podcasts, and the entire world watched as the video amassed over 70 millions views in under 8 months and helped propel YouTube to the status it has today. To date it has been viewed over 150 million times and is the third most popular video of all time on YouTube.

The popularity of the video has lead to appearances on the Today Show, Ellen, Inside Edition, E!, Oprah, and hundreds of other media outlets around the world. He has also been in two music videos - one for Bare Naked Ladies and one for Weezer, performed at halftime of the NBA finals, and continues to bring laughter into the lives of all those who watch it.

  • Life is Change - Socrates once said, "Perfection is constant change." Life is change. Day in and day out the thing that remains constant is change. Judson combines laughter inducing stories with thought provoking ideas to drive home the point that we are in the constant presence of change. His stories, personal experiences, crowd participation, high energy and laughter, help people recognize how to let go of the things out of their control, and focus their energies on things they can change. Judson's finale, The Evolution of Dance™ will leave your audience with an unforgetable message. One which will remind each particpant that "Life is Change," and that they have the ultimate control over the outcome.

  • The Paradoxes of Life - Using life's condradictions and paradoxes, Judson's program reminds the audience of life's delicate balances. At times one may have to do the opposite in order to achieve a desired result, make a change to move forward, fail in order to succeed, forget in order to remember. The more that is learned - the more reality surfaces and we realize how little we really know.
