How To Deliver a TED Talk: Secrets of the World’s Most Inspiring Presentations

How to Add Humor to Your Talk

  • Humor is rooted in surprise. Self-deprecating humor is easy, effective, and safe. Exaggeration is usually good for a laugh. This features normal people in extraordinary situations or extraordinary people in normal situations. Think of Shakespeare in first grade. Body language can help. Facial expressions and body movement should be part of your repertoire. Be original by dramatizing the characters, stories, and dialog in your personal stories. Stay away from public domain jokes. Try for humor about once a minute and don’t worry if something bombs. The secret to getting more laughs is to try more often. Above all, keep it clean.
