    1. SOMEBODY PLEASE LAUGH! 3 steps to better humor in presentations
    2. Delivering humour right, is like playing a game of golf…
    3. … any one can play it. But what leads to a good game is…
    4. Practice…
    5. Good delivery…
    6. ..and the right tools.
    7. > Practice > Good Delivery > Right tools
    8. Good humor isn’t a trait of character, it is an art which requires practice . David Seabury American Author
    9. (PRACTICE) ^ 10 till you can deliver right
    10. Try it out on friends. Do they find it humorous?
    11. Good delivery involves: <ul><li>Set up </li></ul><ul><li>Pause </li></ul><ul><li>Punch </li></ul>
    12. 1. Set up the story Briefly, dramatically
    13. Make it short. Long-winded stories are boring.
    14. Make it dramatic…
    15. The product sold very well Uninteresting
    16. The product disappeared off the shelves Better
    17. 2. Pause for drama
    18. A pause calls for attention. Once audience are listening…
    19. 3. Deliver punch line...
    20. ... slowly, clearly
    21. An example…
    22. When I told my client about the amazing purity of ‘e-boiled water’, he asked me… “ Can I download it from the internet?” SET UP 1 PAUSE 2 PUNCH 3
    23. The audience needs to hear the punch line to laugh…
    24. Do you have the right tools?
    25. Check the sound system
    26. Is no one still laughing with you?
    27. If you are laughing at the audience, they will not laugh with you.
    28. 4 letter words, religion, gender bias, disability, politics, insults are NOT FUNNY
    29. If your audience do not like it, skip it.
    30. After all, humor is not the point of your presentation!
