FUNance with Brad Zupp
About the Artist
Brad Zupp started performing professionally at age 12 and continued for 20 years, performing around the world at corporate events, schools, and shopping malls, on cruise ships, at theme parks, and with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
At 32 he settled down to a life of real estate and finance. At age 40, after several years as a financial planner, he realized that both adults and children lacked understanding of essential financial concepts. He decided to combine his love of making people laugh with his knowledge of personal finance and "FUNance" was created.
His goal is to entertain students while showing them the importance of math in everyday life and the essentials of personal finance. After nine years and hundreds of performances, he knows that thousands of students have a better understanding of money because of the time they’ve spent laughing and enjoying the FUNance assemblies.
"WOW! Loved the show. Teachers loved it. Kids loved it. Parents heard about it."
PTA President, Branford, CT
"Mr. Zupp, besides being a genuine entertainer, had the kids engaged during the entire assembly. They all walked away with a newfound appreciation and comprehension of personal finance."

"Everyone loved this show. Multiple parents emailed me to tell me how much their kids had enjoyed and learned from the show. Our town is now full of Save-a-gators!"
PTO Volunteer, Ellington, CT

“I have been teaching for 15 years and can honestly say that after watching his show I became more motivated and instantly incorporated some of his techniques into my everyday teaching. Students have responded in a positive manner and have changed the way they are going about remembering facts. I have seen an improvement in their ability to retain information on a daily basis. I would highly recommend this program.”
