In 1980, Pritchard won first place in the San Francisco International Stand Up Comedy Competition as well as winning the prestigious California Probation Officer of the Year. Drawing from his counseling background, Pritchard began using humor to inspire, teach communication skills, anger management, diversity, conflict resolution, and how to overcome burnout and stress. For his work in promoting nonviolence with youth, Pritchard was awarded an honorary doctorate in humane letters from Hartwick University. He also established Heartland Media Foundation, which focuses on building character and emotional intelligence, violence prevention, inciting motivation and leadership in young people and adults to improve schools and communities.
