Virtual Programs

“[Paint Social] was such an awesome event! Lindsey is an amazing instructor. I appreciated how she went out of her way to create an option for a Chicago skyline.”

— Rigo Gutierrez, DePaul University

CCOMEDIAN RYAN KELLY

Ryan Kelly was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri where he started comedy as an improviser. He was trained at schools such as IO, Second City, UCB and Groundlings. He then ventured off to college where he wanted to try new exciting things, and thus he began his foray into performing stand-up comedy. After going to Christian school for 18 years, also known as the full program, he’s justifiably earned the youth pastor look and vibe he gives off. Faith, however, was forced upon him through his wild death defying life experiences. He’s survived a plane crash, been tackled inside the NSA, negotiated a better deal during a mugging and more. All of these experiences were filmed through shaky cam thanks to his essential tremor. A condition that according to medical science is caused by your guess being as good as the next guys. He doesn’t mind though, and his upbeat attitude while recounting these experiences will keep you wondering if you can have what he’s having. Though it’s been a bumpy road he’s always shakin but never stirred.

SIGNAL STRENGTH: SOFT SKILLS IN HARD TIMES

The great challenge we all face is that technology is evolving faster than we are evolving culturally.

The current generation of students are the product of that gap between technological advance and cultural lag.  The unprecedented access that technology gives them to, well, nearly everything, has allowed us to overlook the things that technology cannot do:

  • Access does not guarantee connection
  • Information does not guarantee wisdom
  • Awareness does not guarantee justice

Here’s the Good News

We can help students.  “Signal Strength” is a virtual program designed to highlight the simplest, most practical ways that students can develop skills that will help them feel more empowered and capable of achieving whatever they want while they’re in college. 

In this virtual presentation, Paul Ramsay brings his expertise as a former educator, the strategies of a practicing hypnotist and Strategic Intervention Coach, and the energy of a nationally touring entertainer to serve you and your people.  Paul uses Zoom and the Kahoot! app to poll the audience about specific challenges they face, and tailors his presentation toward the information he gathers so that students are getting practical applications of the core content

Truth or Laughs

[Truth or Laughs] “Thank you for the laughs, it was a lot of fun!”

— Minahal N, West Virginia University

TRUTH OR LAUGHS

For as long as comedians have told stories, audiences have wondered, “Did that really happen?!?” 
“Truth or Laughs?” is a virtual, interactive comedy show where you can win real money. It takes the audience behind-the-scenes of funny stories with hilarious reveals. 
Hosted by New York City comedy couple Ben Rosenfeld and Michelle Slonim, “Truth or Laughs?” is an hour-long show composed of three rounds.
In each round:
– Ben or Michelle tells a 3-5 minute (uninterrupted) funny story
– Afterward, participants play a ten question true/false interactive game about what parts of the story happened in real life. Faster responses get more points.
– After each question, Ben or Michelle reveals the details behind the part of the story in question.
– The winner gets $50 cash (via Venmo/PayPal)

– Then in a role reversal, the winner then goes on video and plays “2 truths and a lie” with Ben and Michelle competing against each other

Traditionally, Brian Ledbetter’s shows are seen live on stage.  Today, they are seen live, and virtually!  Brian combines every element of “mystery entertainment” – mindreading, mentalism, magic, illusion, and more – to create one cohesive experience sure to be remembered.

Additionally, Brian can teach the viewers how to perform fun bits of magic – bits that aren’t complicated or difficult to learn, and that don’t require any special equipment.

This is a time when everyone could use a little more “magic” in their lives.  The aim of this virtual experience is to deliver that magic in a fun, engaging, and light-hearted manner that connects us together in a way that isn’t so common today as it was not too long ago.
