    Uncle Bruster’s Lessons in Laughter: Comedy to Lift your Spirit and Lighten your Soul!

    Workplace stress contributes to a number of Human Resource concerns, including absenteeism, lower productivity, unprofessionalism, and discipline.  This high energy program will teach Human Resource professionals how to have more “professional” fun at work.  Reports have shown that children under the age of 13 laugh 300 times a day, while adults squeak by with a mere 17 chuckles on the daily scale!  Uncle Bruster’s program will enable participants to understand the impact of attitude and mood on co-workers and provide insight into how all organizations can address the problem by having a little more fun at work.Each show is pure enjoyment that your guests will never forget. Every performance is guaranteed hilarious and ridiculous, but the “Bruster” never leaves an event without having intertwined a special message about life and its taxing stresses which is sure to uplift as well as entertain.

    Presented by:
