ost radio people who attempt on-air comedy try to make
themselves laugh...but not necessarily their listeners.

Your comedy is not being compared only to that of competing radio
stations. It's being compared to the hottest TV comedies that your
audience watches each night.

In this unprecedented seminar, you'll learn the secrets these comedy
masters use to create, edit, and refine original mass-appeal material.

Four of the five experts were extremely successful major market
jocks who relied primarily on humor.

The fifth panelist has no radio experience — but rock-solid TV
comedy credentials.

In this free-wheeling session, they all give blunt, practical answers to
straight questions — even "naming names" when asked for examples
of well-known radio hosts whose attempts at comedy are...Well, kind
of lame.
