Bullying Assembly Uses Comedy to Reach Students
Date:5/24/2010

bullying. Keith says, “Most students view bullying as physical contact that happens between ‘the guys’. I tell them that I’ve taught middle school, been shot at, stabbed, jumped out of planes with the Army and fought in the Tough Man contest…there is nothing that scares me more than a middle school girl!”

Indeed, Keith spends a lot of time on the destructive ways girls can treat each other. Keith says the genders bully in different styles. “Guys tend to be more physical and reach resolution quickly; girls can drag on an online stalking campaign for years. Or stated differently, guys may put each other in the hospital, girls put each other in therapy. I use comedy to show the ‘Mean girls’ how shallow and harmful their actions are.”

Keith has been an award winning public middle school teacher, youth leader, youth speaker, private counselor and educational comedian. He is a winner of the “Teaching Excellence Award” for his work with at risk students and was awarded the “National Impact Award” for his work at parent outreach and education. It’s from this public school background that Keith draws much of his insight into bullying behavior. “I once had a conference with a group of girls that had been picking on the same girl for years. I asked them why they were doing it and they responded that they didn’t know, think about it, years of hate and aggression and they didn’t know why. I tell that story during my bullying assemblies and you can see self recognition in the eyes of several girls. It is startling to them (the aggressors) that they do not know why they do what they do.”

Keith’s use of comedy to hold the attention of students has been appreciated by administrators throughout the country.
