Workshop: FUNNY BUSINESS

A comedian has to think outside the box--in fact, the good ones don't even have a box! Comedy writing will open doors to new ways of thinking about problems and solutions in life and business. Hands-on exercises let participants work with tools such as exaggeration, absurdity and word play. They will learn to write jokes, think funny and find answers by looking through the comedic lens. Laughter is internal jogging!
Comedy is aerobics for the brain. Let the Raspyni Brothers' Funny Business Workshop increase your company's net-mirth.
 
Workshop: VOLCANOBALL

This 30-60 minute workshop will have participants moving and laughing while playing the Raspyni Brothers' patented invention--The VolcanoBall.
It's easy to master the basic tricks while building self-esteem and relieving stress. This original toy has none of the preconceptions associated with juggling and can be used in small places. Business tools such as juggling priorities, cultivating relaxed concentration, and creative problem solving skills are perfectly demonstrated during a VolcanoBall workshop.
A body in motion is a mind in motion. A recent study showed that activities like VolcanoBall actually increase gray matter--something modern science believed impossible. Challenge your group with this eye-opening and brain-building experience.
