Laughter Is the Best Medicine
Some call him the Funny Doctor. Some call him the Phunny Physician. Still others call him Ethyl. To most, though, he's known as The Healthy Humorist. He's Brad Nieder, M.D., a hilarious doctor and speaker who entertains, inspires, and enlightens audiences across the country with his unique blend of health care comedy and wellness advice. Dr. Brad delivers his presentation--'Laughter is the Best Medicine'--at conferences, conventions, and corporate events. He's perfect as a keynote speaker, an after-dinner entertainer, or an uplifting opener (or closer)! He speaks for health care groups, professional associations, government organizations...basically anyone who could use a dose of laughter! And couldn't everybody? After all, laughter is the best medicine. Well, okay, maybe penicillin is better. And aspirin is good, too. Come to think of it, morphine's got to make the list. But laughter is still quite effective at reducing stress, managing pain, and boosting the immune system. In the workplace it can enhance communication, aid creativity, and improve productivity. And when Dr. Brad speaks, it's contagious! How did Brad end up being Dr. Funny? How does one come to blend health care and humor as a professional speaker? Just prior to going off to college, Brad discovered improvisational comedy. So while a freshman at Stanford University, he became a founding member of the SIMPS improv comedy troupe. During medical school at the University of Colorado, Brad frequently performed standup comedy throughout Denver for both live audiences...and cadavers. He then took his unique style to the East Coast when he went to the Medical College of Virginia for his residency training. He still traverses the country, but he once again lives in Denver, a general practitioner who some would say is a specialist in Healthy Humor!
