3 Ways to Mix Comedy and Public Speaking | Reece Ristau

  1. 1. 3 Ways to Mix Comedy and Public Speaking Reece Ristau
  2. 2. Humor About Yourself Many people that are in the business of giving speeches may have serious personalities. One way these individuals find the humor in their story is by making the best use of things that can’t be changed about themselves. Try keeping track of the parts of your day that you found funny. It is likely that many people will agree with you. Tell some close family members stories that you found funny and keep track of when they laugh.
  3. 3. Two Key Parts of a Joke Writers that specialize in writing for comedy pay attention to two areas especially. In any joke there is the part where you inform the audience of background information they would need to understand. Next, the punch line is a surprising moment where the audience can laugh. Sometimes tag lines are additional laughable moments that come after the punchline. The key for the punchline is that it needs to go in a direction different than the setup to get the biggest payoff. Business speakers can use these steps in their presentations as well.
  4. 4. Prepared Spontaneity Comedians often rehearse material and test it out in different ways before it hits the stage. It is a practice that is carefully analyzed to arrive at the desired audience outcome. Even those moments in the show where it seems the comedian is making it up on the spot, it happens within preset guidelines. Take note of the popular saying in comedy, “a tight five is better than a sloppy fifteen.” This rule of thumb will make for better business presentations that are more carefully edited, timed, and structured.
