That other humorist from Hannibal, MO is BACK—and she can’t wait to share with you what’s she’s been up to since she headed west. Karyn combines neuroscience, positive psychology, axiology, and applied humor to help her audiences boost their business, their relationships, and their health. She’s ready to reveal how the power of thought and the spirit of humor can take your speaking business to a higher level!


Discover how you, as a speaker, can:

  • Add whimsy to your work to add to your bottom line—even if you’re not funny!
  • Weave humor into your sales and marketing to lower resistance and stay top of mind.
  • Harness your thoughts and rewire your brain for greater success, significance, and happiness.
  • Laugh your way to more money, better sex, and thinner thighs (really)!
  • And anything else you want to ask—yep, she really is unplugged—so nothing’s off the table!

Mark your calendar and reserve your spot today!



Karyn Buxman, RN, MSN, CSP, CPAE is a research-based thought leader on applied humor, whose undertakings include her TEDx talk—“How Humor Saved the World,” 11 books, online courses, and her soon-to-be-released podcast: “Laughing Your Way to More Money, Better Sex, and Thinner Thighs.” As a neurohumorist, Karyn’s career resides at the intersection of humor and the brain. She is masterfully funny, but her passion and calling are sharing the practical benefits of humor, neuroscience, and positive psychology for influence and well-being. Karyn is one of 270 professionals—and one of only 60 women—in the world to be inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame. (Did you know that she’s a past-president of the NSA St. Louis Chapter? No joke!) Karyn coaches high-performing speakers internationally and speaks globally to organizations that grasp the important role humor plays in business, health, and life. Among her 800+ clients over 30 years are NASA, AARP, and the Million Dollar Roundtable.
