Why combine AI & Comedy at your next event
AI IS SUPER TOPICAL
Artificial Intelligence is the most hotly discussed topic amongst almost every industry, company, and individual.
What is it?
How does it work?
What are the Risks? Rewards? Opportunities?
What does the immediate future hold as AI emerges, disrupts and transforms your industry
Comedy is engaging, entertaining & Memorable
Using comedy as a metaphor for how to adapt AI to your industry, allows your audience to relax, be entertained and engaged with content, that is completely tailored to them and your message.
AI & Comedy Combined
In previous efforts, we've heard attendees say this was the best demonstration of AI they've seen at a live event and a fun way to tackle the subject of AI, Large Language Models, Deep Fakes and other emerging technologies.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is currently the top technology topic on everyone’s lips.
From CEOs to Apprentices, companies to individuals everyone’s talking about it.
AI will re-shape every industry, every job… every event, live or virtual.
For the optimists, the opportunities to disrupt and transform entire industries is exponential and exciting. For the pessimists, it’s the”elephant in the room” that many are concerned about, taking their jobs, making them redundant. It’s a real and present danger, so there’s no point burying our heads in the sand, we must have our eyes open to the future.
You can’t compete against it, but you can compete better with it.
So, how do you and your company tackle AI?
How do you openly explore the risks, rewards, opportunities and challenges of this game-changing ubiquitous technology in a corporate setting?
WHAT IS IT?
It’s a keynote speech/performance, followed by panel discussion.
The Keynote is structured as a 20 min session (length can be adjusted to suit).
Based on up to 10 topics. 1 minute on each topic for the AI comedian and for the human comedian. Tit-for-tat. Toe-to-toe.
(20 mins suggested) - made up of 5 key people.
An AI expert (supplied by you or us) or your CTO (Chief Technology Officer)
Plus CMO (Chief Marketing Officer), CPO Chief People Officer), or CLO (Chief Legal Officer/General Counsel).
Each comes at this topic from a unique angle, all of which are extremely relevant to the discussion what your company or industry can do with AI.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It’s simple. Up to 10 topics, based on the challenges or opportunities your company or industry are facing. Usually these are taken from key points in your event’s agenda.
These are chosen by you. Delivered by us.
We create uniquely tailored 1 minute comedy pieces, written & delivered by world-class comedian Sam McCool & a world-class AI program, presented on-screen as a speaking digital avatar.
All delivered using your existing AV setup. No extra requirements, other than a large screen.

WHY USE COMEDY?
Comedy is engaging, entertaining & most of all memorable.
We use live comedy as a metaphor for how AI can be adapted to your industry, to create innovation and new opportunities. It allows your audience to relax, be entertained and engaged with content, that is completely tailored to them and your message.
In previous events, attendees have said this was the best demonstration of AI they've seen at a live event and a fun way to tackle the subject of AI, Large Language Models, Deep Fakes and other emerging technologies.
WHY SAM McCOOL?
First of all, Sam is the AI comedy pioneer who invented this concept. No-one else is doing this for live corporate events!
It came from a brain-wave of his while hosting a pitch event for IBM and Tech Data. Both global technology companies. Both have already implemented this at their own events - live and virtual.
Besides this, Sam is a seasoned veteran on the events and speaking industry.
He is a global speaker, MC, comedian, writer & producer. As well as TEDx Host, business pitch specialist, finalist on Australia’s Got Talent, with sell out shows at Sydney Opera House, Sydney Theatre Company and has toured his comedy shows from Bollywood to Hollywood and beyond.
He has performed at 1,000's of events, to over 1 million people, around the planet.
Together AI and Human both compete, collaborate, and captivate your audience. It’s a uniquely light-hearted way to explore and deliver a serious message.
This tangible and demonstrative use of AI will leave a much more memorable impression than ‘futurists’ who just talk the talk. We walk the walk! And will be far more relevant than a keynote speaker talking about triumphs from the past in a totally unrelated endeavour.
We are using AI and other technologies to revolutionise how comedy is created and delivered in the near future.
And this serves as an inspiring example for your teams, about how AI and other technologies can be leveraged in your industry.
You just have to ‘think outside the Bots’!
IBM in partnership with Australian comedian Sam McCool have been turning our attention of late to a world first effort - to demonstrate if artificial intelligence can be funnier than a stand up.
We’re finding it a perfect way to illustrate how IBM’s multidisciplinary, multidimensional approach is helping advance responsible AI.
