Is laughter the best medicine for your speech?
September 16, 2008
I can’t wait to see Philomena give a speech. Oh, for those of you outside of the Caribbean, Philomena is the local doyenne of comedy; she dresses in drag as a cleaning lady and dishes dirt on everything from politics to the economy to relationships.
But back to my point though. I would love to see Philomena deliver a key note address without the head-tie, the apron and the freakish makeup. Instead I’d put her behind a lectern, corporate suit and all and I’d bet a million dollars, she’d be good. Damn good really because right away she’d know that humour is one of the best techniques that a speechgiver can use to connect with his /her audience.
