Comedian Taylor Johnson presents
Tell a Good Story
A SCHOOL ASSEMBLY DISGUISED AS A COMEDY SHOW
Being there for others
Better friendships in the age of technology
the power of a good story
Taylor opens up about his own story of depression and struggling with suicidal thoughts from Jr. High into college. When a friend opened up about their own experience it was the first time Taylor knew he wasn't alone and he actually talk about what he was going through.
Taylor tells the story of why bullying is such an important topic for him. In high school he WAS the bully to one kid in particular who he messed with every day until he couldn't take it anymore.
Stories let us know we're not alone. Stories help us understand each other. Stories can inspire. And stories are always better shared face to face, instead of through a screen.
COMEDY WITH A PURPOSE
Taylor uses comedy as a way to get in the door. Laughter can bring down our walls and defenses. It can ease us into a place where we're comfortable talking about topics we're usually too scared to bring up.
When the assembly transitions from funny to serious you will be able to hear a pin drop. There's nothing that can grab an audience and bring them to the edge of their seat.
