The finalists for the 2013 Most Humorous Individual Award for Best Humorist are:
Individual: Carol Spurgeon
Organization: The Gardens Tulsa (site)
Submitted by Valerie
Carol Spurgeon is the Activity Director of Gardens Tulsa and is known as one of the funniest people there. She will do ANYTHING for a laugh. She sings, dances, plays, jokes, teases, and laughs her way through EVERY day. Gardens Tulsa doesn’t have karaoke, they have Carolokie. She sings any song from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
Lastly, Carol brings her dog Pedro (Chihuahua) to work with her, and he will also sing on command. The residents LOVE Carol and Pedro.
Individual: Lisa Warsinke
Organization: Find the Fun (site)
Submitted by Goddess of Fun
Lisa constantly pulls small pranks just for fun. They are non-hurtful shenanigans such as taping a soda cup above the driver’s side of her car to evoke panicked reactions as strangers scream “there’s a cup on top!” while jumping and pointing. She’s also always finding ways to incorporate improvisation games into your daily work and make the day more enjoyable.
Individual: Dick Chudnow
Organization: ComedySportz (site)
Submitted by Improv Lover
Dick is the founder of ComedySportz and his sense of humor permeates the entire organization. He’s always doing things to liven up meetings and gatherings, including creating a bag of energizers that people can pull from whenever a meeting is getting too dry. Dick instills a sense of fun wherever he goes, whether it’s on a corporate training, in his improv classroom, or randomly on the street. In fact, if you call Dick up, he’s likely to answer with something like “Thank you for calling ComedySportz, how can you help me?”
