The We Bring the Funny Story

We Bring the Funny are the guys who know “what”.

Jake, Steve, and Mary have spent years writing, performing and hosting corporate events and meetings.  So often they would be hired by producers and planners who weren’t sure what might work best, or what the client truly wanted, or what the client needed. 

It was these guys job to figure out the “what” and to make it happen. 

Finally one of them said, “sfjiecbnj rsbde”.   The other two said, “Swallow your food!”  The first one said, “Gulp, sorry.  Let’s not wait around for someone to maybe hire us to figure out the ‘what’. Let’s be the guys who know ‘what’. Is there lettuce in my teeth?

Thus, We Bring the Funny was born.
