BBC 2 Programme The Speaker

Pro Humorist

But it’s not quite clear why they’re doing it, other than the fact that great speaking is now back en vogue thanks to President Obama.

As some of the reviews of The Speaker have said, and I am inclined to agree, it felt a little bit icky when they got taken to Malawi to meet children who were poverty-stricken so that the young speakers could have a topic for their final speech. They would get given a topic and have to bust out a speech in a head to head with the other peeps who didn’t get through.
