Everyone Has A Story To Tell

Hi and thank you for visiting us today. We’re Troy and Zara, Directors of Humour Australia.

As performance coaches and keynote speakers, we travel the world helping people to harness their G.S.O.H (Good Sense of Humour) and become more captivating and compelling communicators.

So… why do we believe in the power of stories to transform lives?  Stories Spark Our Imagination, Stir Our Emotions, Stimulate Learning & Persuade Action.

Knowing how to tell your story without boring your audience to tears, or even worse, leaving them wondering what the point of your presentation was, is sometimes easier said than done. After all, anyone can tell a story for the sake of it, but knowing how to craft and deliver your story with the aim of having your message taken to heart, remembered and acted upon…  can sometimes feel a little overwhelming.

’s where we come in.

Over the years, we’ve had well over 10,000 appearances on stage, radio and television to audiences of all shapes and sizes. We’ve shared the stage and microphone with the likes of Sir Richard Branson, The Black Eyed Peas, Heath Ledger, Destinys Child and Chris Rock to name a few and have performed to a collective audience of more than 6 Million people.


But you know what really lights us up? Helping people and businesses, like yours, discover how to lighten up and reframe stories that create an emotional connection. Stories that move people to act.

Happier people, happier world

You’ve located the people who will help you find your magic. Working with you was brilliant, honest, funny, insightful, organised, intuitive and all class. I highly recommend HA! - a joy to work with.”

“After a few sessions with Zara & Troy, I realised there was so much more I needed in my speech. My delivery was off, I relied on the lectern and my subject matter was too serious for any audience to enjoy. I am now landing the laughs, injecting energy into my speech and most importantly – relishing the opportunity to share my story! I would pay their fee ten times over: these guys really are that good...”
