Use of Humor in Presentations
Speakers utilize humor in a speech or presentation to keep the audience involved while
presenting a significant point at the same time. Although this strategy may not work for
everyone, many speakers are willing to take the risk because it gives the audience some break
from a potentially tricky and challenging presentation (Putri,2020). According to Evans et al.
(2019), Beginners think opening a speech with humor is the most excellent way to go. However,
this is not always the case. It is possible, but not usually the case. Humor is a tricky thing to do.
To use comedy, you need to understand what makes the audience laugh and what makes them
uncomfortable. What you find amusing, another individual may not find amusing.
Considerations include the following: the audience, the number of individuals in attendance, the
sort of event or setting, and any organizational characteristics.
For the most part, most presentations are tense, serious, and emotionally taxing for the
audience. All of these things can be relieved with the help of well-planned and well-placed
humor in presentations. Speaking with comedy can also make you seem more approachable and
friendly. Due to this process, many people in the audience become more receptive to new ideas
(Putri,2020). Humor comes from real-life events. For the most part, speakers need to think about
their personal lives and tie them to the issue or subject they are addressing. It is important to note
that not all techniques are appropriate for every sort of audience or situation. Speakers must be
aware of their audience and modify their humor accordingly (Evans et al.,2019). For various
reasons, humor may not be well-received by some people. Inappropriate humor may not be well
accepted. Several factors can cause inappropriate humor. If the target of the humor is incorrect, it
becomes inappropriate to the audience.
