Liverpool – The Comedy Capital of the UK?
I am looking forward to giving the opening lecture – The Seven Secrets of a Successful Pitch – at The Pitch Live in Liverpool on Thursday. http://www.thepitchuk.com/
I haven’t been to Liverpool for a long time but I am looking forward to reacquainting myself to the city and its special breed of humour. I think that there are only a few places that breed more than their fair share of comedians and these obviously include cities like, Glasgow, Dublin and London. However, I feel that the Liverpool sense of humour is really special and seems to permeate the very essence of the people in the city. As someone with a background in comedy as well as psychology I think everyone can learn a lot about why humour is vital in pitching, coaching and life. As Voltaire said “The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease”.
I hope that this short video helps you feel better now... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdfxkS7ZVaA
