An old speaker’s adage about humor asks, ‘Do you need to include humor in your speeches? Only if you want to get paid!’ Think about the best speeches you’ve heard. Didn’t most, if not all of them, at some point make you laugh?
What is the right type of humor to include in your speeches? How do you include funny material without taking away from your message? What if you’re not a naturally funny person, how do you make people laugh in a speech? According to Craig Valentine, 1999 World Champion of Public Speaking, the thing you don’t want to do is force humor into your speech. Rather, uncover the humor from your key stories.
How do you do this? Fortunately, a book has been written that answers this question.
