Planet Funny With Ken Jennings – This Week’s Six Pixels Podcast

Mitch JoelPosted by

Episode #641 of Six Pixels of Separation is now live and ready for you to listen to.

I’m a moron. I did not put two and two together. My buddy, Scott Stratten, let me know that a new book called, Planet Funny, had recently been published. I’m all-in on any non-fiction book that can bridge comedy, culture and things like that. Too many business professionals discount the value and merits of comedy in business, and how massive of a communications skill that comedy is (in short: study comedy if you want to get better at positioning, storytelling, communications skills, etc…). Plus, let’s face it, funny equals happy… and we can never have enough of that! The author of the book, Planet Funny, has written over a dozen other books like (Brainiac, Maphead, Because I Said So! and many more). He also happens to be the winningest contestant ever on the age show Jeopardy! (And even lost to IBM Watson’s artificial intelligence). That’s Ken Jennings. So, yes, we discuss the impact of what he calls “peak comedy,” but we also chat about his appearance on Jeopardy! and many other topics (as you can imagine, Ken is smaaaart). So, does your business need more funny? Yes… yes it does… and there’s never been a better time to make that happen than right now. Enjoy the conversation…
