3 Artful Ways To Add Humor And Laughter Into Your Speeches

Back at my other Club tonight was another meaningful meeting. I was definitely glad to be the Language Evaluator at Telok Blangah Toastmasters Club tonight.

In addition, I got to listen to an advanced speech and a speech about organization. Incidentally, both speeches centered about humor and laughter.

There are quite a number of places to include humor into whatever you are presenting. Here are 3 of the artful ways:

1. Check out for where you insert your punch line, especially in between paragraphs. Test them out for different punch lines will create different impact.

2. Note the high point of your speech and work some simple exaggeration into it.

3. Discover where the surprise of your speech is and follow it up with a one-two punch line.
