Louisa church to host nation’s top sitdown standup comic

Posted on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 at 9:00 am

Brett Leake, one of our nation’s top sitdown standup comics will present an “Evening with Brett” at Holly Grove Christian Church on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. There will be no charge to the public and we invite all in the community to attend this special uplifting evening.

Leake provides humorous keynote presentations tailored to educational conferences, healthcare, aging and caregiving conventions.  With several appearances on The Tonight Show, he continues to appear on the public broadcasting comedy special, Laughing Matters with Brett Leake.

Leake is an “entertainment with a message” speaker.  The entertainment is squeaky clean standup comedy.  The message is pulled from his experiences living with muscular dystrophy and is presented in short light anecdotes.  His life is lived to the fullest not in spite of the problems but because of them.

His inspiring presentations leverage his success at overcoming adversity to focus on creativity, managing change, life balance and personal growth.  He weaves into the entertainment recent findings in emotional intelligence research; why humor is essential in our lives, how one can develop a humor lens, and the notion that if we attend to a few core needs we and our colleagues can communicate more effectively, feel less of a divide between work and home and find what suffices.

Holly Grove Christian Church is located at 1637 Holly Grove Dr., Bumpass.
