Black takes a wry look at the perils and pitfalls of being a Canadian at this challenging time in our history. But it’s not gloom and doom. Black bills himself as “Comic Relief”. His talks are designed to make audiences relax, laugh until they get damp and generally recover from the stress and tension of workshops, study sessions and all the serious stuff that goes on at conventions, conferences, symposia and other business get-togethers. He also makes a point of ‘customizing’ his talks with particular references to the group in question. Black’s motto: BELLYLAUGHS GUARANTEED OR MONEY REFUNDED.
