Danny Wallace

Danny Wallace knows that tone is the best tool when it comes to humour. A tremendous tone makes you more trustworthy, tasteful, and talented. Actively listening to your audience and presenting your talk with the appropriate tone is the best way to ensure you are tickling the ribs of the crowd.

Danny Wallace has a colossal collection of creative content on his CV. From writing best-selling novels, to producing award winning television, to voicing characters in wildly popular video game series, Danny Wallace has done it all. No matter what Wallace works on, he is sure to include a touch of humour.

“I think it’s a great way to interrupt any moment, humour is a wonderful tool for that. It can pop tension.”

Wallace knows that a great sense of humour can act like a toolbox whether you’re writing alone or working on a team. Comedy-minded colleagues can make connections and build resilience against negativity that can cause a rift in the creative process. No matter the medium, Danny knows that humour can help the creative juices flow.

“You can absolutely ruin a room with it. But you can also create a sense of warmth and use it as a shield sometimes as well.”

Join us this week as Danny dives into the value of comedy. Chat it up with a true creative to get to the bottom of the power of humour only on The Humourology Podcast.
