Fee: Call For Quote

“The Healthy Humorist” - Brad Nieder, MD, CSP* - is a doctor, funny speaker and clean comedian. He’s not just another mildly amusing corporate humorist. He’s really funny. Described as “Jerry Seinfeld with an MD,” Dr. Brad was infected with the comedy bug while watching Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show” monologues from the foot of his parents’ bed. When he got older and stayed up a bit later he discovered David Letterman’s “Late Night” antics. He taped and memorized George Carlin’s HBO specials. (Yes, even the dirty words. But he knows better than to repeat them on stage now.) Did we mention this healthcare comedian is clean? He wrote funny articles for his Denver high school newspaper. He was a founding member of an improvisational troupe (The SImps) while an undergraduate student at Stanford University. And he performed standup comedy at comedy clubs throughout Denver while he was in medical school at the University of Colorado.

After completing his internship and getting his medical license, Dr. Brad realized there was a serious nationwide shortage of funny doctors. So he began his unconventional medical practice of delivering his unique brand of healthcare humor around the country to corporate audiences, convention crowds and conference attendees. Physicians, nurses, bankers, teachers - indeed people from all industries - have benefited from the doctor comedian’s medical humor.

Now 15 years into his career as a professional speaker, the comedian doctor earned the CSP* designation in 2011. He has not been published in the “New England Journal of Medicine.” (But he has co-authored the book “Humor Me,” and he has a great CD - “A House Call in San Francisco” and DVD - “The Healthy Humorist in Orlando: Laughter is the Best Medicine”.) He’s not a celebrity speaker. He hasn’t been on “The Tonight Show.” He’s not an Amazon best-selling author. (Aren’t those claims usually just a scam anyway?) He’s simply one of the best funny speakers and clean comedians in the events industry today. (Just check out his testimonials! And don’t overlook the comments about Dr. Brad being easy to work with! Stressed-out meeting planners love him!) He’s one of the best values out there too! His medical comedy won’t break the budget for your event.

Dr. Brad lives in Colorado with his lovely wife and three wonderful kids. He tries to practice the “healthy” part of what he preaches by running and swimming in the Colorado sunshine. He also loves to ski and fly-fish in the Rocky Mountains. He loves to travel, too, though, mainly to indulge in “The Healthy Humorist’s Unhealthy Eating Adventure Across America” (THHUEAAA) in which he consumes such unhealthy fare as Italian beef in Chicago, BBQ in Austin and ice cream in Columbus. (Yes, it’s weird that central Ohio has such an abundance of great frozen treats!)

*CSP = Certified Speaking Professional (an earned designation from the Global Speakers Federation that essentially means Dr. Brad has been doing a great job on stage for a long time for many audiences!)

    "Hats off to the Healthy Humorist and his timely message about incorporating more laughter into our lives! From his opening line he had the audience of 2000 members laughing, and there was no lag time during his entire 60-minute presentation. His delivery and comic timing were impeccable. His material is clever, clean, and insightful. He's a Jerry Seinfeld of the medical profession with his hilarious observations. As one coder said to me later, 'Our jobs are so stressful. It felt good to sit there and laugh!' If it were up to me, Dr. Nieder would be my choice for a keynote every year. We can all stand to lighten up and enjoy ourselves a little more, and that message came through loud and clear in the presentation."

    "Many Thanks to you for bringing laughter to the Woodland Healthcare Physicians, Allied Health Professionals and their guests. You were very well received by our group; not only were we very entertained by you, but we also enjoyed your company. We all need to be reminded from time to time that laughter IS the best medicine and that is just what you provided throughout the entire event. Many commented that you are a wonderful speaker and an incredibly talented humorist and many are still talking about it. I will definitely pass your name along to the other CHW as a recommended and hilarious keynote speaker."

    "A doctor-approved laugh session."

    - Denver's Mile-High Magazine, "Top Doctors" Issue

    "You received rave reviews and a score of 4.9 out of 5 on the evaluations--not an easy accomplishment among a group of over 100 head nurses. The participants felt you made great connections with the home care field. Everyone thought your humor mixed with the reality of day-to-day medicine was the best way to end a symposium--reminding us how to laugh with all the challenges that we face daily. Many of those surveyed commented they would like to have you return. Thank you for helping us see the joy and laughter in what we do each day, and for sharing the brilliance of the Dr. Seuss version of wellness--it was great and very popular with the nurses. They left laughing and educated. What else could we ask for?"
