Keynote Topics

I am however, one of the top funny motivational speakers by industry standards. Many of the nation’s leading speaker bureaus, lecture agents, and meeting planners consider me their go-to guy for corporate humor. I’ve always been good at pretending to be a serious business expert. So, audiences believe that I’m a genius in their field, even as I get them laughing. And, because I deliver my speech with a straight face, some people think I’m real AFTER I’ve revealed I’m a fake.

I learned public speaking from my father. He was a lawyer, a judge and a great orator. In college, I won a debating award at the Student Model Harvard United Nations. My comedy chops were developed at the top clubs of New York City, including The Comedy Cellar, Carolines, Catch a Rising Star, and Dangerfields. And I learned how to work ALL audiences by touring the country.

The best funny motivational speakers help your employees to be better at their jobs. This in turn helps your company to be better at its job. I have played experts in health care, tech, banking, real estate, law, government, defense, and more. I’ve been an advisor to 5 different presidents. And, I sat next to former NY Mets baseball star Keith Hernandez on national television. He thought I was an actual sports fitness doctor.

Harry Freedman Funny Motivation has always been funny. In high school he was elected to the student government after making a hilarious speech about school policies that got his 600 fellow classmates rolling with laughter, while the school vice principal looked on with an expression of shock.

During his senior year at SUNY Binghamton, Harry was one of only a handful out of 2000 elite New England students, including Ivy Leaguers, to win an award as outstanding delegate at the Harvard Model United Nations. He had become a sharp debater.

After attending 3 semesters of law school in Miami Florida, Harry realized his fathers wishes for him to follow in HIS footsteps as a lawyer and judge were not his own. He did however learn to explore both sides of every issue in depth, which became invaluable for joke writing and he also excelled at Moot Court.

Over the next few years, Harry worked as a managing editor for a humor magazine and feature writer for a Miami Beach Newsweekly. Then he decided to go after his own dream – standup comedy.

When South Florida’s first comedy club opened in Hollywood Florida, on opening night, Harry “killed” for a crowd of 250 people, receiving 5 ovations in 12 minutes. That show changed his life.

He moved back to New York and the rest is history.

Harry Freedman Funny Motivation offers clean, tasteful stand-up comedy at its best, if you’re hosting a private party, business function, award ceremony, fundraiser, retirement dinner, holiday party, birthday, or any event where you want everyone to laugh.

Whether you want straight stand-up, an emcee, or his personal specialty of customized put-ons, Harry will provide everything including sound and lights for a great show at a budget you can afford!

Harry Freedman Funny Motivation has appeared as a stand-up comedian on Carolines Comedy Hour with Richard Jeni, Stand Up Spotlight with Rosie O’Donnell, and Comedy On the Road with John Byner.  Harry can also be seen at theaters as Ray Romano’s opening act.

Harry Freedman Funny Motivation

Over the years, Harry has toured the country, opening for many  big name comics. This includes Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Allen, Dennis Leary, Andrew Dice Clay, Paul Reiser, Pat Paulson, Drew Carey (who actually opened for Harry) and many more.

He also became friends with Ray Romano and Richard Jeni. And Harry has opened for both in numerous theaters and clubs across the country, including Carolines in New York City.

In the late 80’s and early 90’s, Harry was featured on many national TV shows. Among them, were VH1 Stand-up Spotlight with Rosie O’Donnell, Comedy on the Road with John Byner, and Carolines Comedy Hour on A&E with Richard Jeni, which Harry Freedman Funny Motivation also wrote for. In addition, Harry took home a nice check for coming in 3rd place on America’s Funniest People.

Harry Freedman Funny Motivation was also a regular at New York’s top comedy clubs including The Improvisation, The Comic Strip, and The Comedy Cellar. In addition, Bill Maher took a liking to Harry’s humor, and regularly gave him spots at Catch a Rising Star.
