Each morning Scott will begin by welcoming the attendees to the general session and then proceed to warm-up the audience (similar to warming up a television audience before a taping). Scott will open with a short comedic monologue and then segue into one of several interactive trivia games, such as “TV Theme Music Trivia” or “Show What you Know”.

STAND-UP MONOLOGUE
Scott will perform some comedy from his stand-up act -- sprinkled with “inside jokes” and customized material.

TV THEME MUSIC TRIVIA
Scott will divide the audience into two teams. After creating a rivalry between the two teams he will lead them in a friendly competition of TV Theme Music Trivia. Scott will stress the importance of teamwork. The audience will hear a series of classic TV theme songs form “TV’s Greatest Hits”. Each team will take turns identifying the TV tune and calling out the correct TV show title. This interactive game gets the audience pumped up and energized for a full day of presentations. Plus it’s a lot of fun!

“LETS MAKE A DEAL” GENERAL TRIVIA
Scott will call on several volunteers in the audience and test their knowledge of humorous, general trivia questions. For their efforts, he will award them with cheap, silly gag gifts. Of course, Scott will offer to exchange these goofy prizes for “what’s in the bag” or “behind the curtain” … which usually results in the discovery of an even more ridiculous prize. These souvenir-type prizes are usually bought on site at the hotel gift store. This interactive piece infuses a great sense of fun and energy into the start of a general session. We can also use this format for “Trivia Breaks” at various points throughout the day.

Scott will work in his interactive comedy routines at strategic points throughout the general session (i.e., after coffee breaks, lunch breaks or wherever comic relief is needed). His hilarious “Psychic Routine” (see videotape) is just one example of the many comedy pieces he will perform throughout the meeting. Here are some other examples:

“PARTNERSHIP” BUSINESS PARODY
This piece spoofs those oh-so-important self-help gurus. Scott launches into what looks like a serious presentation on the importance of building relationships and forming partnerships - internally as well as with clients. Scott proceeds to breakdown the word “Partnership” and demonstrates how each letter in the word stands for something significant. Shortly into his presentation, Scott’s word choices become more and more absurd.

AFFIRMATION ECHO EXERCISE
Scott invites two burly guys from the audience to come up on stage to participate in an exercise called the "Affirmation Echo." Scott instructs them to stand back-to-back and hands them two cards; one labeled 'A', the other labeled 'B'. On each card there are a series of statements. Person “A” reads his statement first. Person “B” is told to affirm each statement. The exercise is set up to supposedly show how two coworkers can build trust. In actuality it’s a comedy piece where each person reiterates ridiculous pithy comments back and forth.

ACRONYMS
Scott weaves into his opening monologue an array of company acronyms in a hilarious commentary on the over-abundance of T.L.A.’s in Corporate America (Three Letter Acronyms). With verbal dexterity he tears through a series of customized acronyms to highlight the absurdity of corporate-speak He even goes so far as to claim that “Acronyms” is – in itself –an acronym.

SNAPS!
This is a clever mentalist bit that demonstrates the importance of communication. Scott will select a volunteer (a shill Scott has worked with prior to the day’s meeting). After the shill has left the room, Scott will then ask the audience for the names of two famous individuals. Through a series of snaps and codes, the volunteer will miraculously identify the two famous people.

LANGUAGES
Scott performs a wonderful routine on languages - further proving his "amazing communication abilities" by thoroughly botching a variety of languages (18 of them!), ranging from French to Swahili. Scott will customize his Italian bit to poke fun at the competition.

“IN THE HOUSE” INTERVIEWS
Scott will go into the house and conduct humorous interviews with members of the audience á la David Letterman. He’ll ask customized questions (culled from the client) that will solicit feedback from the group on various subjects, i.e., their experience at the conference, their expectations for the new year, best practices, success stories, reactions to a product launch, etc. Scott will ad lib with the participants and interject his own sense of humor into the dialogues to make the experience fun and memorable.

“TAG TEAM” POP QUZZES
Scott will advise the audience in the beginning of the general session that they will need to stay focused and pay close attention to today’s speaker presentations. Why? Because at various points during the day Scott will call for a Pop Quiz. Scott will then randomly call up two people from the audience who will then take their place “in the hot seats” (two high back bar stools) on stage. These two players will work together as a team to answer a series of questions taken from the previous speakers’ presentations. To assure that the participants succeed in their task and to take some of the pressure off them, Scott will offer them “Millionaire-type” “life lines” when they get stuck. Scott will joke with the contestants to put them at ease and support their efforts so that they leave the stage looking like stars.

POWER OF NUMBERS
Scott will ask the audience to pick a number from one through ten. He will then attempt to show the audience that they are all connected through the power of numbers. After putting them through a series of arithmetic gymnastics (adding and subtracting various numbers specific to each individual; for example, the first number of their area code, number of siblings in their family, etc.) , the entire audience will arrive at the same number ... Pi (3.14159). How does he do it? Watch and see. That's where the humor comes in.

Scott has many other interactive comedy pieces that he can integrate into the flow of the general sessions. Scott will work with you and your creative team to best utilize his talents throughout the course of the meeting.
