Pitch Lab at Thrive Workplace ft. Ben Kronberg from Comedy Central!

PitchLab in Oct 2017

On a somewhat standard Tuesday, a group of salesmen, entrepreneurs, and creative minds gathered at Thrive Workplace to learn about and practice public speaking.

What made this Tuesday special was Ben Kronberg from Comedy Central, Late Night with Seth Meyers & Jimmy Kimmel Live was on hand to break down stand-up comedy techniques the pros use on stage to help these Denver professionals be funnier, more engaging speakers at work.

Between the basics like breaking the 4th wall and dramatic pause, to the more advanced concepts like improv and storytelling during sales, attendees got to practice telling jokes, improvising and mirroring one another.
