WHAT IS IT?

Laugh Your Ads Off (LYAO) is a stand-up comedy competition featuring hilarious ad agency professionals from various agencies. These funny people compete live on-stage in front of 400+ industry leaders to find out who is Atlanta’s Funniest Ad Agency Professional.

LYAO is in our third year and we are very grateful for our new partnership with The Atlanta Ad Club. The first two years were graciously funded by our founding sponsor Moxie.

LYAO is community through comedy and comedy through community.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Humor Wins produces this event working closely with performers and sponsors to create one of the most memorable nights for Atlanta’s apartment community.

Humor Wins then works directly with the performers to develop and rehearse their material. We have professional writers from Comedy Central, Conan, etc. strengthen and refine the performers’ jokes.

NO EXPERIENCE NECCASSARY
Most of the people who perform on these shows have never done stand-up comedy. We have a proven methodology that makes anyone funny for five-minutes.

MATERIAL
All material is PG18+ as we make sure the comedy is appropriate for the ad agency community, the performer, and sponsors involved.

Humor Wins produces a professional comedy show and handles the entire event, including:

– coordination between sponsors and agencies
– professional photography and video
– professional comedy writing and coaching the performers
– marketing materials
– logos placed on banners in red carpet area
– providing a professional MC and closing comedian
– and much more

WHY DO THIS EVENT?

PERFORMER

LYAO is your chance to perform stand-up comedy in front of a very friendly audience using professional comedy writers. Your performance is four-to-five minutes long and the audiences are so happy to see their peers on stage that if your joke is a four, they respond with like it’s a seven. We promise, this will be one of the best nights of your life.

AGENCIES

LYAO is a high-energy evening designed to bring your whole team together. Imagine you, your colleagues, and/or your clients spending an evening eating, drinking and laughing together. You want your company to be represented by one of the ten (10) performers entertaining them.

Even without having your own performer, you want to show your people a good time doing something different and exciting.

Trophies are given to the performer, their agency, and their sponsor. You can proudly display this trophy in your office to let everyone know you have Atlanta’s Funniest Ad Agency Professional.
