These and other mysteries are explored here, the perfect way to liven up your event and leave your audience laughing.
  • From extreme introvert to stand up comedian, from couch potato to marathon runner, John shares his thoughts about fear, the fear of success, the fear of failure, and the fear of fear itself.

John Fannell worked 20 years in the customer service division of a Fortune 500 company. When he was not asleep at his desk, surfing the internet or redecorating his cube with shag carpet, he actually searched for ways to provide excellent service to his customers. Along the way he wrote and presented programs on customer service and good faith business practices.

On nights and weekends, he hit the comedy circuit from Minot, North Dakota to Little Rock, Arkansas to Corpus Christi, Texas (because anyone can get discovered in LA or New York - what is the challenge in that?). Eventually he worked with the biggest names in the business including Loretta Lynn, B. B. King, Randy Travis, The Righteous Brothers, Weird Al Yankovic, Rodney Carrington and Larry the Cable Guy... to name a few.

So what does one do after years of juggling two careers? Well, there were no openings for astronauts, so today John combines his experiences in his role as a funny motivational speaker. John helps companies, associations and others. He entertains you and tailors a message perfect for your event. When you leave, you will be happier, temporarily stress free, not quite as anxious to jump off a high building and much better company for your pets. What could be better than that?
