I’ve spent the past two decades writing for high profile comedians and tv shows, including Leno, Letterman and Ellen. (Click here for my complete tv credits.)

I know how to bring out the organic humor in your piece, and more importantly, I know how to do it in a way that sounds like you, not me. Let’s call it you, but better.

I’ll take the time to ask the right questions, dig up the best anecdotes and get familiar with your voice. I’ll also make sure any fine tuning and revisions are completed well in advance of your event.

You can hire me to ghostwrite your complete speech, or I can spend a couple hours punching up a draft you’ve written.

We’ll have fun. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what my clients say:

★★★★★ Beth was a pleasure to work with!!! She is a quick study who sought to understand the technical material, me, and the audience. She captured my disposition and refined the talk into a heartfelt, compelling story that I am excited to deliver. She exceeded my requirements well ahead of the deadline. I highly recommend Beth and will certainly hire her again (TEDx TALK)

★★★★★ Beth is an absolute professional. I was on an extremely short deadline (and by short, I mean 24 hours) and she helped me write the most beautiful wedding speech for my sister. She took a lot of time to ask the appropriate question, comprehend my objectives and then delivered a masterpiece. Hiring Beth is a no-brainer. She's awesome. (WEDDING OFFICIANT SPEECH)

★★★★★ Thank you for making it possible for me to express the memories of my Dad in such a beautiful way.  It has been such a bright spot in an otherwise rough week. I am so grateful. (EULOGY)

★★★★★ I needed a speech written for a client event to say thank you to my clients and introduce and say thank you to my team. Beth knocked it out of the park. The jokes were funny and the thank yous were so sincere I have tears running down my cheeks. It could not have been written better. Thank you! (CEO REMARKS)

★★★★★ Beth is absolutely brilliant. Her work was spot on. Perfect turn of phrase, very on point humor, very easy to work with, very professional. She really understood what I was trying to say and how important this speech was for me. I'm incredibly impressed with her exceptional work. (COMMENCEMENT SPEECH)

★★★★★ Beth knows how to take mangled work and turn it into a a comical masterpiece. I loved how professional and on time she was for everything. Will definitely work with her again. (BEST MAN SPEECH)

★★★★★ Beth is a world-class writer. With a consultative approach, Beth helped take my notes and transform them into an entertaining and engaging speech that moved the audience to tears, laughter, and applause. (GROOM’S SPEECH)

★★★★★ Beth was amazing! She went above and beyond to ask me questions about the bride and groom and delivered an incredible speech. I will feel very confident giving this speech thanks to her :) (BEST MAN SPEECH)

★★★★★ Beth was an outstanding partner in preparing a speech which I was nervous about delivering. She was available with electronic communications, but more importantly, the phone conversations that we had allowed her to learn about me, the speech that I was tasked to deliver, the setting and the audience. I enjoyed my interactions and valued her input and just the right amount of jokes that she incorporated into the speech. (KEYNOTE SPEECH)

★★★★★ Beth was absolutely delightful to work with. She took all my ideas and made them shine in a way I could not and delivered on the emotion, tone, and meaning of what I envisioned. She is very responsive and delivered on a tight deadline. (WEDDING VOWS)
