Wayne is a master storyteller, but much more than that, he is a bona fide and gifted humorist … and there is a difference! A humorist is an observer and interpreter of life. He reminds you that humor is the “shock absorber” of life. A good humorist helps us to overlook the unbecoming, understand the unconventional, tolerate the unpleasant, outlast the unbearable, and most significant of all, laugh at ourselves! No one really grows up until he has his first good laugh at himself. Humorist Ates will defy you to laugh and worry and complain at the same time!
Dr. Ates also masterfully weaves tailored humor into the serious part of his message – and there is always a message! The message is one you can take home with you … usually wrapped in funny stories and illustrations that paint unforgettable pictures. No one says “He was so good, but what did he say?” You get the message. Wayne’s presentations are not only works of art to be enjoyed, but they are also slices of bread to be eaten and taken as nourishment. Not only does he entertain, but he also enriches.
You will laugh, you will learn, but most of all, you will be uplifted!

What clients are saying: Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the performance of Dr. Wayne Ates at our recent hospital foundation fundraising event. His presentation was absolutely great. Beforehand, he asked questions about the audience composition, main leaders in the organization, and the geographic area in general. Then, he wove remarks into his presentation that made it more personal. To say he was a hit with our crowd is an understatement. He absolutely had us rolling with laughter . . . and his message was right on target — community support for our goal of building a world-class wellness center…. Marketing/PR Director
