Let me share how I’ve learned to maintain a sense of humor and calm in the face of the inevitable roller coaster ride of life, and how you can do it, too.

FUNNY BUSINESS – Using your sense of humor to navigate the inevitable ups and downs of your career

There’s a reason it’s not called “show fun,” it’s called “show business.”


From variety shows to sitcoms to movies to live theater, Driscoll’s been a performer, writer, and producer at the highest levels of his field. Through fascinating, often hilarious “behind the scenes” anecdotes, Ed offers valuable advice on how to overcome obstacles, naysayers, circumstances, and one’s own doubts. Driscoll demonstrates that utilizing one’s sense of humor and creativity are the keys to being successful in any walk of life.


DON’T CRY--- LAUGH! - Surviving (and thriving!) as an artist, in an increasingly cynical world

Anyone in the creative arts, no matter the level, faces challenges that are not typically encountered in other “normal” jobs.


Ed knows this all too well. Whether it’s dealing with the pressures of performing on national TV, the intensity of writing for the Oscars, handling critics, or navigating the egos of superstar actors and studio bosses, Driscoll has learned many lessons firsthand about the hurdles artists face. This funny and upbeat talk is a Master Class on the creative process, and how to maintain one’s artistic vision while also working with others to deliver the best possible results.

SUCCESS & SANITY: YOU CAN HAVE BOTH! – You can be successful at your job, yet still maintain a sense of spirituality and sanity

In this funny and meaningful speech, Driscoll speaks candidly of the ups and downs of his own personal life, as well as sharing the highest highs and lowest lows of his professional life.


Despite the unpredictability everyone faces both at work and at home, Ed offers encouragement and proof that you can be successful, yet still maintain a sense of spirituality and sanity, no matter what is happening around you.



“Ed’s talks not only make you laugh, but they take you on a ride --- from the ups and downs of life, to the challenges of recovery, to the ins and outs of big-time show business.”
