About Jim and this Web Site
Jim Richardson offers a "Comedy University " for Stand-Up Comics and Keynote Speakers.

Serious Speakers
Oh, before we forget: serious speakers are warmly welcomed to this site. All good speaking follows the same exact writing and performing principles, a point often over looked at the speaker's peril.
All speakers need Jim's services just as much as the stand-up comics, whether you are telling a joke or making a serious point!
On this web site, Jim will be less concerned with what your speech is about than how you deliver it. For serious subjects, tone and emotional effects will differ, but little else.
Please understand that Jim refers to stand-up comics throughout these pages as theirs is the most difficult of speaking tasks. But always, Jim knows that others are reading, viewing and listening.

Online Tutorials for Stand-Up Comics and Business Keynote Speakers
Everyone, go ahead and try out Jim's free online tutorials to review your writing and performing fundamentals. These cyber lessons also give you a flavor of what it will be like to work one-on-one with Jim.
