Brad Montgomery never planned to be a nationally recognized humorist motivational speaker, business comedian, publisher and author. He planned to be a lawyer. After graduating with a political science degree from Brown University Brad intended to be a magician for one year and then start the serious part of his life with the study of law. To date, he is still waiting for the serious part of his life to begin.
After getting his start as a corporate entertainer (performing comedy and magic), Brad now speaks to corporations and associations who need a lift, bringing laughter & magic blended with a simple yet powerful message about creating more humor in our lives. Brad has earned his Certified Speaking Professional designation, which is the highest earned award from the National Speakers Association. (Fewer than 7% of humorists and speakers world wide have earned the CSP.) Corporate clients include Kraft, Proctor & Gamble, IBM, General Mills, Allstate Insurance, Merrill Lynch and Honeywell. Many associations have also praised Brad's work including the Alzheimer Association, the Utilities Service Alliance (a nuclear energy association), The American Payroll Association, and the California Teachers Association.
Brad joined John Gray (of Mars/Venus fame) and Mark Victor Hansen (of Chicken Soup renown) to write Mission Possible. He has also coauthored and published Humor Me: America's Funniest Humorists on the Power of Laughter. The book is filled with tons of motivational speaker humor.
Brad is a Humorist Motivational Speaker, urging his audiences across the country to lighten up and to remember that our lives are filled with humor and magic. He helps associations and corporations manage change and improve morale. Brad reminds groups that "Life is Fun & Funny. And Filled with Magic." By the looks of things, his clients agree. Folks use him to kick off conventions with a bang, close 'em with a laugh or to lift them up somewhere in between. His audiences completely enjoy his entertaining, inspirational and motivational speeches and leave his keynotes with a spring in their steps. After Brad's humorous keynotes audiences feel great about themselves, great about the meeting or convention, and hopeful for the future.
Brad lives in Centennial, Colorado — a suburb of Denver — with his attorney wife. (Brad assumed that the next best thing to being a lawyer was tricking one into marrying him.) Although he is proud of his many awards and national credits, he's convinced that his best tricks so far are his three small kids.

Ordinary Magic. The Funny Business of Enjoying Life
Business speaker Brad Montgomery helps your group to see that real magic happens in their lives— and their jobs — everyday. Magic doesn’t have to mean vanishing tigers and floating women; sometimes finding magic is as easy as stopping to smell the flowers. Or lingering over the funny pages. Or getting in the short line at the grocery store. Or finishing a work project on time.
The more we celebrate this type of magic, the more we’ll enjoy our lives. At work. And at home.
