The Art of Adding Humor To Your Messaging


Heidi Bailey

Course Description:

“But I’m not funny!” Humor can lift people’s mood and facilitate trust - key components to building relationships in today’s creator economy.  Yet we often equate humor to comedy, and funny to jokes - something we believe we’re not good at - never realizing humor is about so much more. Humorists are keen observers with a deep understanding of humanity. This makes them ideally suited to creating content that both engages and inspires. Like any skill, humor can be developed. In this session, learn to harness the power of humor in your communications strategy by incorporating humorous messaging into your brand personality, voice, and verbal identity.

Please bring the following supplies with you: 

Art Supplies: Bring something you find funny... a comic, meme, social media post, ad, short video, etc. Please keep it short, sharable, and clean!


Heidi is a studio artist at the Manitou Art Center. She is also a writer and graphic designer - working with agencies, visitor centers, libraries, nonprofits, authors, artists, and others to create messaging that engages and inspires. Along the way, she became a student of humor, culminating in a terrifying but exhilarating foray into stand-up comedy during an open-mic night. She is currently training in improv comedy and finds joy in encouraging others to push beyond their own boundaries to discover the feats they are capable of achieving.
