Laugh Your Ads Off (LYAO) is a stand-up comedy competition featuring hilarious ad agency professionals from numerous agencies. These funny people perform 5-minutes of stand-up comedy live on-stage in front of 400+ industry leaders to find out who is Atlanta’s Funniest Ad Agency Professional.

LYAO is in our fourth year and we are very grateful for our partnership with The Atlanta Ad Club. And a big THANK YOU to our host sponsor Moxie.

We like to say, “LYAO is community through comedy and comedy through community.”

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

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. Watch additional performer testimonials here to see that we can make you funny for 5 minutes!

One of the mot common questions is, ‘What about the material?’ Which is a great questions because you do not want to worry about offensive material making people feel uncomfortable. That is why Humor Wins makes sure all material is PG18+ and the material matches our Humor Rules:
1) Stay away from religion & politics
2) Keep it above the belt
3) Stay away from unsafe subjects
4) Do not single out people, agencies nor clients


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



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.


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.


Grabbing the attention of the agency community requires ideas that are truly unique, fun and fresh.
