Post written by Moira Beaton DTM, Vice President Public Relations

Humour is mankind’s greatest blessing (Mark Twain)

Thursday 6th September  – humour, fun and nail-biting suspense when the club holds its annual Humorous Speech Contest and Table Topics Contest. 

ALL members are eligible to compete.

Humorous Speech Contest: a 5-7 minute humorous speech with the usual opening, body, conclusion – not a standup routine.

Table Topics Contest: 1-2 minute speech – all contestants speak on the same topic.

We also need Judges,Timers, Ballot Counters and SAA’s and of course, an audience!

To get you in the mood, make yourself some tea or coffee, have a seat for 7 minutes and watch the District 71 Humourous Speech Champion 2008 – Michael Cronin from Speak Easy Toastmasters, Mallow, County Cork, deliver his hilarious winning speech Feel The Fear And Blow It Up Anyway.

Look out for most posts on humour and a video on an easy and foolproof way to construct and deliver Table Topics.
