Phoenix, AZ, July 26, 2023 ( – Prepare for an uproarious night of laughter as the Tampa Improv presents an extraordinary event on Wednesday, September 6 at 7:30PM (doors open at 6:30PM ET). This unique comedy show features an ensemble of high-achieving entrepreneurs and CEOs who are fearlessly stepping out of their comfort zones and diving into the world of Stand-Up Comedy. The Entrepreneur & CEO Stand-Up Challenge, a groundbreaking program designed to foster personal growth and development, showcases some of the most original comedy performed by successful business leaders today.

Curated by renowned humor scientist and Las Vegas headliner, Matt Kazam, the Entrepreneur & CEO Stand-Up Challenge is a one-of-a-kind experience that merges the art of Stand-Up Comedy with the strategic mindset of high-level executives. Over a rigorous six-week program, participants immerse themselves in the science of joke writing and performance techniques, culminating in a captivating 12-15 minute stand-up routine on some of the biggest comedy stages.

The illustrious lineup of performers includes the original shark from the TV show Shark Tank & the inventor of the infomercial Kevin Harrington. Joining him are esteemed CEOs and founders such as Nick Friedman and Omar Soliman of College Hunks Hauling Junk, Kevin Curtis of NERP, Alison Friedman, Executive Director of the Carolina Performing Arts Center, Clayton Turner, a serial entrepreneur and investor, and Erica Dhawan, CEO of Cotential. These visionary leaders have embraced the challenge, showcasing their comedic talents and sharing their remarkable stories of triumph, failure, and everything in between.

Matt Kazam, the host and instructor of the program, explained the program’s unique approach, stating, “The reason this program works so well is I am teaching real science to highly intelligent individuals who have an aptitude for learning. They easily recognize and interpret the patterns and formulas behind joke writing. Through this program, I can take them to a level that would typically take six years on their own, all while having an incredible amount of fun along the way.”

The Entrepreneur & CEO Stand-Up Challenge satisfies a burning desire on the bucket lists of many top CEOs and entrepreneurs—a chance to perform Stand-Up Comedy. Whether driven by ego or a genuine interest in exploring new territories, these successful individuals embrace the opportunity to step out of their comfort zones and experience personal growth through comedy.
