I had the pleasure of watching Judy Croon speak at a Public Service Event. The female motivational speaker and stand- up comedian presented a hilarious speech, Relieving Work-Related Stress with Humor.
Judy clearly has a real knack for comedy, her humorous punchlines had the audience rolling in the aisles.
Judy Croon is a comedian, female motivational speaker, Second City stand-up coach, radio host and author.
She has been the opening act for many celebrities including; Joan Rivers, John Stewart, Lewis Black and Robert Klein. Her specials have appeared on NBC, CBS, CTV and The Comedy Network. Judy has co-hosted morning radio shows on Toronto’s Mix 99.9 and LA’s KFRG
Judy is the creator and host of “Laughlines” and “Stand Up for The Girls” which have raised over $650,000 for breast cancer research.
Judy talks about how comedy is a great tool because when we laugh we relax when we relax we learn. The public service employees really needed the humor as the content in this event was overwhelming. I love watching a funny motivational speaker perform because its a really different experience. Watching an audience laugh really connects them, helps them relax and learning and retention are far greater.
Like Judy says, Just when everyone is sticking toothpicks in their eyes- WHAM- hit them with a punchline. Especially, nowadays..people are so freaked about EVERYTHING.
Hey if you're going to pee your pants, do it from laughter, not from fear.
In her speech, Judy outlines how humor helps decrease stress and negative emotion. She cites a Harvard study that says our grey matter shrinks and we can make bad decisions.
She says one minute of anger can weaken the immune system by five hours. Yet, positive people can live upward of 10 years longer.
Judy recently co- produced a book, From the Stage to the Page, Life Lessons from Four Funny Ladies. The book is written by Judy Croon, Meg Soper, Judy Suke and Susan Stewart. From Four different perspective they cover the topic of humor, laughter and play all from a positive insightful and funny perspective.
