Do it with the lights on

Speak Schmeak

This doesn't guarantee that the emcee will practice your introduction or have any measure of polish, but at least you can choose the words. I felt that the emcees lacked preparation and were winging the introductions, one more noticeably than the other. The emcees don't have to be as engaging as the speakers; that's not why we are attending. If you are ever asked to give introductions or emcee an event, don't take this job lightly.

Observational Humor — Case Study #60

Humor Power

The emcee was dressed in the same colored suit as Frank. This uses the Drop-Yourself-Into-The-Story technique. Here is another Observational Humor Monologue. THE SET-UP (What was said and what happened during the meeting before the monologue was delivered.). A speaker told a story of locking her keys in the car. She had recently made a new friend, Beverly, at a Toastmasters meeting. She rode her bicycle to Beverly’s house to get help with her lock-out situation.

Getting Your Speech Off To a Good Start

Humor Power

Las Vegas is a classroom for performance and presentation techniques. And that’s the reason the Emcee of the Contest usually tries to warm up the audience before the first contestant speaker hits the stage. One of the lessons I’ve learned after watching over 200 shows is the importance of The Show Before The Show. Rarely does a Las Vegas show begin with the curtain rising on a dead stage before a lifeless audience. .

Observational Humor — Case Study #49

Humor Power

Let’s look at some Observational Humor from a Toastmasters meeting which highlight some humor techniques: – Call backs and running gags. – Dropping yourself into the story. – What this means is. – What everybody is thinking. The Toastmaster of the evening (emcee) selected a meeting theme of Star Wars. My use of story boards might be considered a call back to those used by the emcee.

Public Speaking: Deliver Your Punch Line to Someone Who Appreciates You

Great Public Speaking

You can also find your punch line receiver by watching when the emcee or program coordinator talks to see who is paying attention and having fun. Using the right delivery techniques, selecting appropriate and relevant jokes and practicing diligently. As a professional public speaker, you naturally want to entertain your audience, as well as inform them. Using humor as a tool to convey your message, and not strictly to elicit laughter, can take a lot of stress off a public speaker.
