Site Map
Table of Contents — 2 web site versions of my Information for:
Stand-Up Comics, Business Keynote Speakers,
Politicians, ventriloquists & other solo acts.

Previews of all my products and services are now spread out over these two web addresses
As I transition between my:

1) Flash Player version web page (2006-2010) with legacy text, audio and video at Jim Richardson.com

2) The more mobile-device-friendly version (2011-2014) like this web page
That features some of my legacy material.
Here is where all my latest text, audio and video can be found: Stand-UpComedyWorkshop.com


"Home Study Program (HSP) for Stand-Up Comics, Business Keynote Speakers, Politicians, ventriloquists and other solo acts"
1,200 pages of workbooks and related hand-outs, plus 21 hours of audio.

1) These HSP materials were originally designed to support my live Workshops which are now also offered both:
•live, in-person and
•online, live over the internet through interactive web video conferencing
via your computer's or smart phone, digital assist or tablet's webcam.

2) Plus, my students and clients order my HSP as a supplement to our one-on-one Coaching & Co-Writing consultations
•which can be taken in-person, and/or through Internet video conferencing,
over the telephone, email, or snail mail.
•This is how you can get my feedback on your performance videos, whether posted online or snail mailed to me via DVD, scripts, audio, etc.

Video previews and course outlines are available at these 2 web addresses:

1) Flash Player version that plays on 98% of all desktop and laptop computers begun June in 2006:
This version offers 12 stand-alone audio/workbook package outlines with Flash video previews using Flash Player.

Here's the rub that prompted my creating a mobile-first second version of my web site:
•Flash Player is barred from Apple hand-held, mobile iOS devices created since June 29, 2007, like iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
There is still a lot legacy stuff only available here like my "Radio Show: Tip-of-the-Week archives" requiring Flash Player:

2) Mobile-first version begun in August 2011 can also be accessed by all desktop and laptop Computers:
This newer version offers 35 Lesson Outlines, plus both Flash video and Apple mobile iOS mp4 video options for some video previews, i.e.,
