HAVERHILL, MA — Northern Essex Community College professor Dave Rattigan is set to give his presentation “Laughter in Your Life” on Tues., November 19 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the Merrimac Public Library, 86 West Main Street in Merrimac.
This presentation will focus on how to bring more humor into work and life. Laughter reduces stress, improve outlook, and leads to a better quality of life according to Rattigan.
At Northern Essex, Rattigan has been making students laugh while helping them learn for two decades. As a professional stand-up comedian, he has been making people laugh for nearly three decades, on Sirius Satellite Radio and at clubs and theaters, but also in less traditional venues like hospitals, libraries, a parking lot, warehouses, business lobbies, gazebos and lots of other places he says he’d like to forget. He has used humor to diffuse tense situations and deal better with stress. In this variation of his “Laughter in the Workplace” corporate presentation, Dave uses his stand-up material to lighten the mood, and then facilitates a combination of improv games, funny stories, stand-up, and Q&A’s to help the audience create their own comedy experience.
As an adjunct faculty member at Northern Essex and UMass Lowell, Rattigan teaches public speaking, interpersonal communications, and professional communications.
