  • @thiennq and @erwin I think there is a big difference between 'humor' and 'jokes'. Humor done well can be a great way to get your audience's attention and keep them listening. But a 'joke' is just dangerous, I think, especially in an international setting.

  • @thiennq I agree with you. A good (on topic) joke may loosen the crowd and lower the bridge for interaction. I speak of Dutch presentations: The crowd listens, the speaker speaks. With a good joke it lowers the borders between both.

    I think joke is good (in sometime)
