The use of comedy and humour on stage is an aspect of speaking that many speakers feel confused or uneasy about. How do I know what is funny and what is not? How do I pace my jokes? What kind of humour do I use? What happens if I am not naturally funny? Can humour be taught?

Cindy and Jason take on this fun and challenging topic in this episode.

Jason discusses his fascination with the British Music Hall comedian Max Miller and Max’s uncanny ability to work his audience.

Cindy and Jason discuss their backgrounds performing and writing comedy. Cindy promotes the benefits of improv, while Jason discusses how to use, and not to use, jokes, one liners, and funny stories in your talk
