All About Devin




About Devin Henderson

Corporate comedian, funny motivational speaker and award-winning magician Devin Henderson speaks and performs for corporations and trade associations across the country. Devin does corporate comedy, often mixed with magic, to deliver high-impact messages to a wide variety of industries. His topics include humor in the workplace, servant leadership and failing to succeed.

Devin takes humor seriously. He has a funny way of helping people perform at their best by embracing their sense of humor. As an entrepreneur, father of five, and a pain in the neck to the world’s most beautiful bride, Devin’s mantra is: “When life’s hard, laugh hard.” He shows people how humor can help them deal with change, stress, failure, difficult people, and the lint that collects on the shower floor after wearing a new pair of socks. Black socks. We’re talking real problems.

As a humorist keynote speaker, Devin helps people see how humor can make them healthier, more productive, more creative, better problem solvers and more fun to be around. His keynote presentations are interactive and hilarious, but his magic and mentalism are really what set him apart from other corporate comedians. Devin teaches that happiness is directly related to one’s ability to laugh at life and that humor can be found in nearly any situation.

Devin has been professionally cracking up, amazing and inspiring audiences for fifteen years. He has presented as a corporate comedian in all 50 states, except Hawaii, Alaska, and about 15 others. Devin has opened for comedians Sinbad and Mike Birbiglia and is a Certified Speaking Professional, which is like the black belt of public speaking. So don’t mess with him – his humor is lethal. He is also a self-published author. “Share Your Magic” is Devin’s best-selling book of all time, mainly because it’s his only book. Devin wrote this bio himself, which is challenging and actually kind of weird.

Back Story

How does a kid go from being a hobbyist magician to making a living as a funny motivational speaker? Here’s how it happened to me.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it all started with Joey McIntrye from NKOTB (That’s New Kids on the Block for you cra cra millenials). No, I didn’t have a crush on Joey. Yes, my sister did. My sister had all the NKOTB merch you can imagine, including the “Step By Step” VHS, which included exclusive backstage footage. And what did the New Kids do backstage?


What is CSP? The Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation is the speaking industry’s international measure of speaking experience and skill. CSP is conferred by the National Speakers Association on those who have earned it by meeting strict criteria. The letters CSP following a speaker’s name indicate a speaking professional with proven experience who knows how to deliver client satisfaction.


My faith is the most important thing to me, but do I push spiritual matters in my keynote presentations? Only when I’m asked to. Like when I’m speaking in churches or for good ‘ol ma and pa type companies based in the Bible Belt. I mean, come on, I get it, your organization is diverse and you don’t want people complaining to HR about the controversial speaker. I’m not dumb. I’m really good at being PC. So good I should’ve been a politician. Maybe I missed my calling. If you are interested in my underlying values, keep reading …
