Speaking Skills We can Learn from Comedians

Comedians are the best expression of professional speakers. It’s not easy to get up in front of a crowd, let alone entertain them. They could just as easily “boo” you off the stage, or worse yet, not laugh. Comedy is a craft that requires deep audience interaction in order to be successful, and this alone can take years to master. All successful comedians have skills we can learn from to help us do better in our own speaking events. Here are a few skills we can take with us.

Skill 1: Comedians prepare and repeat material excessively

Skill 2: Comedians seldom acknowledge their jokes

Skill 3: Comedians are constantly connecting with the audience
