Sample Humor

The kids learn from us.

There are many laughs, as well as tears, in growing up, especially as we look back.

Travel this fun and exciting road with Bill Ecker as he examines in a humorous way the trials and tribulations, the growth and the learning, the “how to’s” and the “how not to’s” from birth
to old age.

Heart warming stories, vivid examples, and creative ideas will rejuvenate the thoughts of the audience in rediscovering how we all grew up.

Growing up in many ways was like a traffic light:
•times to stop
•times to be cautious
•times to go

Speech: 40-60 minutes
