Observational Humor — Case Study #86

Humor Power

I was able to use the block-of-salt line as a saver, or what I like to call a bomb-line; that’s a line you use to soften the blow of delivering a line that misses the mark. With a small audience, you’re more likely to need a bomb-line than with a larger crowd. And how nice it is to use an original bomb-line and a running gag from a fresh observation. Daniel was introduced by the emcee to be the Master Evaluator.

The emcee presented trivia on the subject of TICS throughout the meeting. Daniel gave a Tic Talk without being a bomb. Playing with sound-alikes [tick tock] and double meanings [bomb]). Here is another Observational Humor monologue presented at the end of a meeting. First, I’ll give you the set-up.

Speak and Deliver

You asked someone else to ask, but the emcee didn't read your outro, inviting people to talk with you, go to your website, etc. We all bomb, occasionally. I know how you feel. You spoke in front of a large this morning, delivered a message you've labored over for weeks, months, in some cases, YEARS, and.nothing. Yes, they applauded. But, other than that, NOTHING.
