Ignite Your Creativity through Comedy: A Virtual Adventure

An Adventure with Pitch Lab exploring how improvisation can help you work together with others to create compelling new ideas – fast.

Join Jay Mays, founder of Pitch Lab, and veteran comic, Daniel Reskin, as you learn how to ignite your communication, collaboration and creativity using proven techniques from comedians like Kate McKinnon, Bill Murray, and Maya Rudolph.

Takeaways from this Adventure include how to be a more empathetic listener, think faster on your feet, and stay courageous in the face of adversity.

After each activity, we’ll dig into what went well (or didn’t) and how it ties back to helping you be more creative for our community.

Sign up with a friend or two, because as they say: none of us individually are as creative as all of us together.

This is a real interactive Adventure, so be ready to turn your Zoom video on, get out of your comfort zone, and connect with other TEDxMileHigh-ers! 

Thursday, June 24  /  6:30 – 8:00PM MST  /  Free + Virtual

Jay is a 20-year sales veteran and recovering stand-up comedian. From his underdog beginnings in dive bars to being awarded Best Comedy Venue in Miami, Jay has produced live comedy events for some of the biggest names in entertainment including The Miami Marlins, Soho House and Live Nation.

As founder of Pitch Lab, Jay combines the seemingly disparate worlds of sales and comedy to help client-facing teams differentiate from the competition, build stronger connections and help more clients.
