David Lawrence and business partner Johanna Gill have entertained audiences around Australia since 1994, writing and performing comedy for any corporate situation.
Whether masquerading as keynote speaker at a "serious" industry conference or MCing an awards night, this comedy duo is well known for quickly spinning industry specific information into memorable material.

If the aim is to educate, motivate, encourage teamwork or purely to entertain, they will strategically and comically incorporate the key messages into the presentation in order to meet the clients objectives.

As a team David and Jo carry out hypotheticals, hoax, role-playing, public mischief and comedy strips.


"Your presentation has continued to be spoken of as the conference highlight."
- Australian Institute of Training ' Development

"You really had everyone going - a fantastic performance. Our objectives were fully achieved."
- EL'C Baillieu Stockbroking

"Your planning and execution were wonderful. It would not be a surprise if several of my colleagues were left wondering whether you were indeed an imposter at the completion of your speech!"
- Optus Vision
