Q: Can I see sample speeches you’ve written?
Yes! Check out the Speech Help section of our site. You can watch client-submitted videos here. For the protection and privacy of those we’ve written speeches for, all speech examples are fictitious because we are 100% confidential… like your therapist, but cheaper. And less judgey.
Q: Will Laugh Staff be writing speeches from scratch or do they use a template?
EVERY speech is personalized to you and your stories. No templates are used, just the content which you provide. Templates are for corporations, content is for comedians!
Q: What if I don’t like the comedian’s style once I start working with him or her?
Impossible, because all of our comedians are easy to work with and hilarious! On the off chance you do find yourself wanting a change, just e-mail your manager and they’ll either handle your account or assign you someone else.
Q: How long will it be before I get my speech back?
We offer three options for speech delivery: 3 days, 1 week and 2 weeks. If you need a speech sooner please call or e-mail Cameron directly at email@example.com. The sooner you turn around the questionnaire, the sooner we can deliver your speech. So start talking about yourself, we encourage it!
Q: Can I get help actually performing my speech?
Absolutely! We offer coaching services that you can add at check-out. The coaching is either done by phone, video chat, or in person on request in NYC (pricing for in-person coaching varies, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more details). The coaching sessions are typically 30 minutes, but we don’t put a time restriction on it. Our goal is to ensure you’re prepared and most importantly, comfortable giving your speech.
Q: What if I don’t like my speech?
We don’t think this will be the case, but if it is simply e-mail your comedian or account manager and let them know you’re not pleased with the edits. If you’re still not satisfied after two more tries at edits, we’ll happily assign another comedian. In over 300 speeches we’ve only had one refund; we feel confident that we can capture the voice and tone you’re looking for. If you continue having issues please e-mail Cameron directly at email@example.com and he’ll personally see to it that we get your speech right.
Q: Will the customers be given the option of choosing comedians based on personal preference, age, gender, personality type, etc.?
We have found that the best speeches come from matching up the client questionnaire and assigning the comedian based off their mutual personality and style.
That being said, if you have a preference for a comedian, please e-mail your account manager as soon as you make a purchase. We cannot guarantee the availability of any comedian, but we’ll make our best attempt to make it work. Guilt works too, we’re softies.
Q: How will I communicate with my comedian?
The entire process can be done from your mobile phone, via email or if needed, a few short phone calls.
You will fill out a short questionnaire that we’ll use to make your speech personalized and unique. This is your speech with your stories, we’re just here to help you make it great!
Q: How can Laugh Staff provide anonymity to those that are embarrassed at having to ask for humor advice?
First of all, don’t be embarrassed because chances are the Bridesmaids hired someone to do their hair, nails, and makeup. Sometimes you just want a professional to save you time and stress.
Also, there's a reason every late-night talk show host has a group of writers working for them, it’s tough to be funny in front of a wide demographic. So please don’t worry, your secret is safe with us. We will never publish or post your speech without your written consent.
