Smalley Events

Our seminars will transform the way couples build a healthy, secure relationship! We have reduced 40 years of research into powerful events. Whether you are 19 or 80, married, or planning to get married, our events are for you! Over the years we have discovered two different styles of events proven effective in reaching couples, the evening date night style and the two day event style.


  1. The Comedy of Love Date Night
  2. The Comedy of Love Weekend Event
  3. Your own custom event or keynote presentation


“Dr. Michael Smalley was recently at our church to present on relationships, marriage and communication. He brought a 2 hour, fun-filled night that at its core was life bringing. He used humor, talked reality, and delivered a message of hope to all who attended. What was so unique was that his message was relevant to all in attendance no matter where their marriage or relationship was at. We saw a huge cross section of people represented, that all came seeking answers, direction, and the chance to change the dynamics of their relationship compounded with a tangible hope. As a care pastor who deals with messy church all the time it was refreshing to see real solution, real challenge, real life, and the representation of real Jesus. We will definitely have Dr. Smalley back and look forward to how we can utilize the his direction in the restoration, rejuvenation, and rescue of relationships and marriages in our church and our communities. Great night! And thanks Dr. Smalley.”

Couples love date nights because it requires a smaller time commitment on their part and encourages them to get out and have fun together.  Couples need to experience fun together.  The Comedy of Love Date Night gives couples a chance to enjoy an evening together, laughing and even learning a bit on how to love each other better.

The Comedy of Love Date Night is inspirational comedy, or comedy with a point.  Marriage can be tough, but learning how to love each other does not have to be.

Couples will be entertained while discovering the keys to a successful relationship.  A typical date night event is about a 2.5 hour evening and can include fun interactions for the couples, appetizers, a meal, or dessert.  The evening is flexible and can fit the needs of your church or organization.


If you are looking for a more in-depth experience, but still want all the fun of a date night, then the Comedy of Love Weekend event is perfect.  It has all the stories and humor of the date night but in  a two-day format.
