The Comedy Cast with Morry Morgan
We speak about how Morry went from being a scientist to a successful businessman to co-founding Australia’s best stand-up comedy school, The School of Hard Knock Knocks,
How to identify opportunities in niches,
the nuts and bolts of teaching stand-up comedy,
and how to say the dog’s bollox in Chinese.
Morry Morgan is one of the founders of Australia’s best stand-up comedy school, The School of Hard Knock Knocks.
We kick off the interview speaking a bit about Melbourne where Morry is living and whether they’re sick off all the Irish immigrants yet.
Morry runs one of Australia’s best stand-up comedy school with Australian stand-up comedian Ben Horozitz, so we speak about for a bit, why they set it up in Melbourne and the ideas behind the school’s ethos.
Morry speaks about how he took a stand-up comedy course to improve his stage presence while giving speeches, he met Horowitz on the course and they decided to go into business together and started The School of Hard Knock Knocks.
Morry Morgan was a very successful businessman in China, so I really needed to know some bad language in Mandarin.
We also speak a bit about his past in Cyber security and in particular some of the amazing drones that were developed while he was working there.
Morry wrote a book about his time in China, Selling Big to China: Negotiating Principles for the World’s Largest Market, so we spoke about that, why he wrote it, its success and how it lead to Morry giving a Ted Talk on serendipity while living there.
We get a bit deeper on that and speak about Serendipity a bit more, and I ask Morry about where does he think his readiness to embrace new ideas and his attraction to opposites and finding niches and improving on them comes from.
We get back then to The School of Hard Knock Knocks and speak about the meat and the bones of the courses that Morry and Ben offer.
