Judson Laipply has been described in many ways by many people. Perhaps the perfect description came early in his speaking career when someone called him and “Inspirational Comedian” and the combination was right on.

Funny enough to be a comedian (he won the only contest he ever entered), educated enough to teach college (he taught several classes and turned down an offer to teach full-time), and lucky enough to learn that combination is one of the most powerful mediums for addressing anyone.

People like to laugh and people like to learn. Judson gives all of his audiences both. His keynotes or assemblies are the perfect balance of laughter and thought-provoking ideas.


His finale “The Evolution of Dance” (a hilarious routine of the last 50 years of popular dance moves) has been hailed as “The funniest thing ever” and ends his shows on a super high. From the moment he steps on stage until he dances away his audiences are laughing and learning!

His wide background of experiences including: working on a cruise ship, managing a Dominos Pizza, being a published author and poet, earning a Master’s Degree in Education, Hosting the Miss Minnesota and Miss South Dakota USA pageants, being a certified aerobics instructor, and much more allow him to relate to almost any audience. Winner of many awards including Speaking of the year by campusawards.com and his favorite “Coolest Uncle” by his 7 year old nephew.
