Scott Greggory can find the funny in just about any subject. That's good to know if you need memorable messages that entertain your audience and differentiate your brand. His work has been praised by clients, peers, award show judges, prisoners and members of the local pipefitters union for more than 30 years.
Listen to a few chunks of Scott's goofy copywriting in the video below. (Amy and Scott provide all the voices.) Then, take a look at the humorous and straight copy samples down the page.
"Humor works for [this client], and this is one of the best examples of how you can engage callers needing serious products - with fun-filled zingers. Good job on the writing and the production." (Listen here.)

“Superbly written copy and extremely dry humor that was a perfect match for what could've been a dull subject. I laughed out loud at points, and when a caller starts with that reaction, it's a great way to start a conversation.”

Humor On Hold (Binkelman)
Come one, come all to Binkelman’s Carnival of Sauce! It’s three big days of sauce samples, sauce-covered souvenirs, and sauce-based games of chance. Kids can shake the paw of Richard, the sauce-loving bear. And you can win a prize when you jump the terrifying Puddle of Sauce. Why sauce? Because who doesn’t love sauce, that’s why! If you can pour it, spoon it, ladle it, drip it or squirt it on food, it’s sauce, and we’re gonna’ celebrate it at Binkelman’s Carnival of Sauce. Just head over to the Binkelman parking lot next weekend. And be sure to bring your tongue.
Wife: After my husband’s stroke, the hospital told us about their rehabilitation center. But then we found out we had a choice. We chose Kingston Rehabilitation of Perrysburg. For the same cost, Bob got so much more. The care was wonderful. And he was able to come home quicker than we thought. Now he’s just as active as ever.

Humor on Hold (Walter’s Goodyear)
Here at Walter’s Goodyear we carry quality tires from Dunlop, Pirelli, Michelin, Firestone, Cooper, Goodyear and other brands you know and trust. We hear tell that other tire dealers in town only sell large chocolate donuts and try to pass them off as tires. So don’t be fooled. Always bite your tires before buying them. If they’re delicious, they’re not real tires. A helpful tip from your pals at Walter’s Goodyear.
