Funny you should ask. It is the speech of a speechwriter who's made a career writing humor for public people in serious trouble. Drawing upon the speaker's first-hand experience in politics, advertising, television comedy and as humor operative at the highest levels, FUNNY YOU SHOULD SAY THAT makes the case for comic fearlessness in the face of crisis -- all done in a tone consistent with the topic.

Mark Katz has delivered this multi-media presentation to many audiences of professional communicators, strategic thinkers and media-savvy people of all political persuasions. And people seem to like it:

"Once again your remarks at our Speechwriters Conference stood out among a crowded field of big-name keynoters. You have a unique ability to combine humor with insight and a style that is a welcome cure for conference attendees suffering from PowerPoint Poisoning."
– Ralph Gaillard, V.P. of Conferences, Lawrence Ragan Communications

“Mark may have begun life as a class clown but now he’s the class act in political and business humor.  He wowed our entire staff with his magic act of getting results by getting laughs.”
– Mark Kaminsky, SS+K

“Mark, your remarks at our partner's retreat were the highlight of the weekend. It takes a whole lot to make a roomful of Republican litigators laugh. You had that -- and some to spare.”
– Wayne Barksy, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher
