Brad Montgomery never planned to be a nationally recognized humorist motivational speaker, business comedian, publisher and author. He planned to be a lawyer. After graduating with a political science degree from Brown University Brad intended to be a magician for one year and then start the serious part of his life with the study of law. To date, he is still waiting for the serious part of his life to begin.

After getting his start as a corporate entertainer (performing comedy and magic), Brad now speaks to corporations and associations who need a lift, bringing laughter and magic blended with a simple yet powerful message about connecting a positive work culture and life to an excellent work product. Brad laughs and explains, "Mostly, my clients ask me to remind them to lighten up ... because happiness will help them in life - and at work."

Brad has earned his Certified Speaking Professional designation, which is the highest earned award from the National Speakers Association. (Fewer than 7% of humorists and speakers world wide have earned the CSP.) Corporate clients include Kraft, Proctor & Gamble, IBM, General Mills, Allstate Insurance, Merrill Lynch and Honeywell. Many associations have also praised Brad's work including the Alzheimer Association, the Utilities Service Alliance (a nuclear energy association), The American Payroll Association, and the California Teachers Association.

Brad joined John Gray (of Mars/Venus fame) and Mark Victor Hansen (of Chicken Soup renown) to write Mission Possible. He has also coauthored and published Humor Me: America's Funniest Humorists on the Power of Laughter. The book is filled with tons of motivational speaker humor and to date has sold over 100,000 copies. He is also published, edited and co-authored the follow-up book, Humor Us: America's Funniest Speakers on the Power of Laughter.

Brad is a Humorist Motivational Speaker, urging his audiences across the country to lighten up and to remember that our lives are filled with humor and magic. He helps associations and corporations manage change and improve morale. Brad reminds groups that "Life is Fun & Funny. And Filled with Magic." By the looks of things, his clients agree. Folks use him to kick off conventions with a bang, close 'em with a laugh or to lift them up somewhere in between. His audiences completely enjoy his entertaining, inspirational and motivational speeches and leave his keynotes with a spring in their steps. After Brad's humorous keynotes audiences feel great about themselves, great about the meeting or convention, and hopeful for the future.

Brad lives in Centennial, Colorado - a suburb of Denver - with his attorney wife. (Brad assumed that the next best thing to being a lawyer was tricking one into marrying him.) Although he is proud of his many awards and national credits, he's convinced that his best tricks so far are his three small kids.

  • Ordinary Magic. The Funny Business of Enjoying Life - Business speaker Brad Montgomery helps your group to see that real magic happens in their lives - and their jobs - everyday. Magic doesn't have to mean vanishing tigers and floating women; sometimes finding magic is as easy as stopping to smell the flowers. Or lingering over the funny pages. Or getting in the short line at the grocery store. Or finishing a work project on time. The more we celebrate this type of magic, the more we'll enjoy our lives. At work. And at home. The message of this keynote is simple: Life is Fun & Funny. And filled with Magic! Learning to rediscover the magic in our lives helps us to live well, to be well, and even to work well. Brad covers some specific - and very funny - techniques to remind ourselves that life is astonishing.

  • Presto Change-o: A Magician's Guide to Laughing at Change - Change doesn't have to hurt. It can be exciting and challenging; it can be fun and funny. Change can be magical. In this very humorous program, Brad reveals secrets magicians use to manage change. "Might as well laugh at's gonna happen anyway!" There's an old cliche' about how we cannot change what happens to us, but we can change how we react. Yup, it's a cliche' doesn't mean it isn't true. But just because it is true doesn't mean it is simple. So the problem becomes the "How?" How can we change our attitudes when faced with the fears, discomfort and anxiety that change inspires. The simple answer is to have and access our senses of humor. It isn't always an easy answer, but it is that simple.

    Change management speaker Brad Montgomery teaches us specific ways to "let go" and allow the things we cannot change happen. And then gracefully find ways to succeed in adapting to our new realities. And along the way, we should seek to have smiles on our faces. And, when possible, laughter in our hearts. This hilarious session is filled with Brad's Award Winning Magic, Comedy & Audience Participation. It's a business keynote speech spiced with entertainment. (After all, if your people are not listening, it doesn't matter what your speaker tells them. Brad makes sure they are listening ... and laughing.) It's perfect for groups that want a very entertaining and humorous program with a simple and powerful message.

  • Laugh-O-Nomics™: Happiness Improves Productivity - You can't afford another year without getting the most out of your people. Significantly increase your organization's productivity and creativity in ways they'll both enjoy and remember. Brad's Laugh-O-Nomics™ is the the only truly funny happiness presentation that delivers the knowledge, laughter and the motivation for lasting change to business organizations. Brad can shift your bottom line, no matter how you measure it. But let's imagine you're skeptical; that you think he's over-promising. (He's not.) No matter what, Brad will improve morale, energize your event and prep them for more learning. With Brad, you can't go wrong.
