C5 Insight Managing Partner Geoff Ables chaired the Advanced Learning Institute’s “SharePoint for Internal Communications” event in New York City on March 14-16. At the end of the conference, truTV filmed a segment that was to be aired as part of an episode of the comedy show, Impractical Jokers.
After three days of serious business and technology discussions, Ables introduced Sal Vulcano, a stand-up comedian, to the attendees to lighten it up a little before closing the conference. Unknown to the attendees, Vulcano, one of the stars of truTV’s Impractical Jokers, was there to “bomb” as a comedian. He did a great job as his co-stars were remotely whispering unfunny lines in his ear. Ables was in on the joke, but the TV cameras recorded the uncomfortable laughter and puzzling expressions on the faces of the conference participants as Vulcano told one bad joke after another.
The segment, included as part of Season 6, Episode 12 of Impractical Jokers, recently aired on the truTV network. The episode is currently available on-demand at truTv’s web site and on most cable systems.
Ables is the author of The LUCK Principle, Business Results at the Intersection of People & Profit.

The book is available in both paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon at https://www.Amazon.com/dp/B01N0QW5H4.
