Stop! ……..And think of a line from your favorite song or movie. 

Now try and recall one from that special……”mediocre “ movie that you saw fifteen years ago…………………... Right, neither can I.

No one can. 

You’d be like Ray Charles in Yankee stadium.

Kim Kardashian in a spelling bee. 


We remember extremes. Extremely good. Extremely bad. But we can “apply” the “good” through our daily lives whether it’s jokingly or “I’m gonna do what Rhett Butler did when he had to deal with Scarlet O’Hara.” 

Learning through laughter touches on the same dopamine released through the brain’s pleasure nodes when it’s confronted with the stimulus of having fun.

The neuroscience of reaching the brain positively for long-term effect is based on how open the mind is at the time of informational dissemination. In other word, you learn and retain more when you’re having fun. 

Enter the expertise of David Gorham

Take A two-time “comedy central” veteran with an appearance on nbc’s

“last comic standing”. Now, parlay 24 years of “clean” stand-up comedy experience along with six and a half years of motivational speaking and keynote forays, mix it  with three years as a corporate Trainer; stuff it into a single presentation, …..and you’ve got a package that’s locked, loaded, and custom-built for your group’s long-term learning and self improvement. 

Now you know why you’re able to recite your favorite lines from your favorite 1970’s movies or even earlier.  Because without even knowing it……....You “learned them.” 

Welcome to the neuroscience of learning through laughter.

“Don’t Get Caught With Your Praise Down!”

“Don’t Get Caught With Your Praise Down” is an interactive, comedic foray into the spiritual journey of national comedian David Graham from the time he experiences Christ for the very first time at age thirteen; to letting himself be used as a tool in God’s belt; ……..to falling short and experiencing mama’s belt! (“Mama’s Greatest “Hits”!!) 

With national appearances on Comedy Central, and NBC’s

“Last Comic Standing”, the licensed minister who is ranked as the number one “registered” clean comedian in America has quite a lot to say.

Being a family man and fully knowing that God inhabits the “praises of His people” are at the forefront, and are the driving forces of the “praise” message.

"In comedy, God has blessed me to do exactly the same thing that as a child, I used to get beat-down for……making people laugh!” 

Proverbs 17:22 tells us: “A joyful heart is good medicine.” 

It’s time to laugh out loud………………in the name of Jesus. 

So, Don’t Get Caught With Your Praise Down.

The “spirit” of laughter is coming to town!
