Humor Power

Here is another Observational Humor monologue presented at the end of a meeting. She humorously referred to it as Hot, Horrible and Sweaty. A speaker talked about a road trip thru Utah. Linda, the program emcee, performed a magic trick to introduce the Observational Humor Master (me). I opened the floor to Observational Humor from the members. If you’re ever driving through Utah and you see me lying in the middle of the road.

What Happens When the Win Anyway Guy Loses? Part I

Speak and Deliver

I've also competed in D9 (Eastern WA, NE Oregon, Northern Idaho), and D15 (Utah, Southern, Idaho, Eastern Nevada). Of the 20 previous contests, I had acquired fifteen first place trophies (8 in International) , 4 second place trophies, and only once failed to place in a contest (Evaluation, 2003), but placed first in a second contest (Humorous) at that conference. I added a humor bit that called back to Keynote Speaker Tim Gard's presentation in the morning - and it got a big laugh.

I Owe it All to Toastmasters

Speak and Deliver

I was giving a speech out of the Humorous Manual, and afterward, my mentor, Past District 15 Governor Billie Jones, came up to me with words that would shape my future. I was getting by on natural ''charm and humor'', but doling out cotton candy to my audiences that dissolved as quickly as the words left my mouth and reached their ears. I owe it all to Toastmasters. The first time I heard the word ''Toastmasters'' was in debate class in the 10th grade.

Toastmaster Sunday: Do I Still Get Nervous?

Speak and Deliver

This Fall my District switched from the Humorous Speech Contest to Tall Tales, and the second contest is my second favorite - Evaluation. But for Tall Tales, I dusted off a story I wrote about 10 years ago for a Tall Tales competition in Utah - and polished it with everything I''ve learned since then about writing, speaking, performing, humor - and dove right in. Yesterday I competed at my first Division Contest in two and a half years.

Hans Rosling ’s style is humorous and matter-of-factly. I was quite impressed by your slides at WordCamp Utah that I’m seriously considering #8. If you rehearse a response to these kinds of things (for example, when I hear a cell phone ring, I usually say “please tell them I’m not available at the moment&# ) — it adds the right humor and it won’t distract you from your presentation.
