Marty Wilson of martywilson.com.au is a registered pharmacist who was dead into trying stand-up comedy, and he loved it so much that he won Australian Comic of the Year and moved to the UK to be full-time comic over there for eight years. They say laughter is the best medicine and it must be true. Now he’s back, and he divides his time between writing books, he’s on his 15th cracking up crowds on the International Speaking Circuit, teaching people how to use humor in their business. He has spoken to over 500,000 people, that’s half a million people since he first lit up on stage in 1997 and he’s just returned from San Francisco, and he was the only non-American asked to speak at their Annual Funny Business Conference. There he shared the stage with some leading executives including the founder of Evernote and the director of Video at Facebook who happens to be one of Mark Zuckerberg’s direct report.
