How It Works

The mission of Funnier Speeches is to make you funnier using a three-part process that includes sampling, writing and consulting. The process is as Easy as 1-2-3.

1 – The Sample Process

David Glickman has written thousands of lines for many satisfied clients. However, due to both the confidentiality of his clients’ content and the ghost-writing status of the writing, he is unable to share actual samples of his other clients’ material. Instead, if you would like to review the humor prior to hiring him, David is happy to offer you a complimentary sample of his work by adding humor to one page (double spaced, 12-point font) of your material.

2 – The Writing Process

David Glickman writes custom humor based on the content and context of your presentation. The most effective and efficient way to accomplish this is to work directly from a transcript of your speech. Using this method, most projects can be completed within 48 hours.

When you e-mail David a written transcript of your presentation, he will return your transcript with funny lines inserted right into the body of the presentation. And since humor is very subjective, he will write more material than you can probably use. That way, you will have plenty of choices and can select the material you want to use based on what you find funny and what you feel comfortable delivering. You are free to use as few or as many of the lines that are written for you since they belong to you.

3 – The Consultation Process

Once you receive your humorized presentation, you will receive a half-hour of phone consultation time for each writing project to discuss the humor that was written, consider delivery techniques, or to evaluate your use of the humor to assure you get the laughs you want.

But Wait, There’s Four!

All of Funnier Speeches’ clients receive a PDF copy of David Glickman’s book, Punchline your Bottom Line: 76 Ways to Get Any Business Audience Laughing.

Other Services

PowerPoint Slides

When you do not have a script but instead have notes or PowerPoint slides, Funnier Speeches may be able to assist you. These situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis and do not conform to the same level of writing output as a transcript.


If you need an entire speech written from scratch, the writers at Funnier Speeches can help you.  However, this service is priced differently than humor writing services.

What It Costs

Funnier Speeches’ fees are customized for each project. You will get an estimate of the cost based on the topic, the length of the transcript and the timeframe for the project.

The minimum fee for any project is $495 and covers up to four double-spaced typed pages of transcript.

Payment Terms: A signed contract and payment for 50% of the project fee must be received before writing services begin. Payment for the remainder of the fee will be due upon completion of the writing services.

Transcription Services

Funnier Speeches offers transcription services for audio and video recordings of speeches for $1.75-1.95 per audio/video minute (approximately $105-117/hour) depending on the quality of the audio.

Payment terms: Payment for transcription services will be billed upon completion of the transcription.
