Barry Roberts


A Humorist And Profitability, Productivity & Efficiency Expert

Barry Roberts began his career as a professional singer and humorist at age twelve. By the time he was nineteen he had appeared in major night clubs and dinner theaters and twice performed at The White House for President Johnson. In order to be closer to his family, as his children were growing, Barry limited his entertaining to the New York area. During that time he was also a high school music teacher, a salesman, sales manager, and owner of his own sales organization. His sons are grown, his wife is an elementary school principal and Barry is captivating audiences all across the country once again!

When Barry talks and sings about stress, self-esteem, innovative thinking, leadership and humor in the business world, or in life, he talks from empirical knowledge and practical experience. Today Barry is an acclaimed professional speaker and dedicated researcher investigating the functions of humor on human effectiveness. Barry’s articles have appeared in nationally distributed magazines and his books Practice Safe Stress and The Sales Coach ll have been very well received. He is a member of the National Speakers Association (and is on their special Humor Committee) as well as the National Association for Therapeutic Humor.

Barry Roberts, a humorist, helps businesses achieve maximum profitability and productivity by reducing stress and developing innovative thinking skills. His keynotes and educational seminars are sought out throughout the USA and Canada.

His audiences keep coming back for more; Barry has been brought back by numerous clients to present “other” programs, because his information is that practical and audiences enjoy him so much.
