By combining facts and humour, the impact of the message is amplified and increases its chances of being seen and grasped by the public. Onstage, some of these remarkable British comedians turn their oppressors, agitations and abusers into the butt of the joke. Not only can they do that but in doing so you disempower that negativity.

Marketers who want to connect with humour and comedy themes have found partnering with comedians is a great way to bring refreshing and enjoyable storytelling to their customers. This can be done by finding fun ways to express how your brand can solve someone’s issues or challenges or by simply not taking your brand benefits too seriously and allowing some silliness in your storytelling.
