Tips:  Dan moves around, a portable, wireless microphone is ideal.  Having an AV person present, or, at minimum, a back-up microphone, is a good idea.  Speaking while people are serving meals is possible but can detract from the impact of the talks.   Book signings are available (books sold at a reduced rate).   The closer the audience are seated to one another, the funnier the talk will be.
