Are You Spreading Humor

By: David Hill


I recall a teacher I had in school, came to school one day wearing a brown shoe on one foot and a black shoe on the other. She had been in a rush that morning and simply grabbed a left shoe and a right shoe. They were the same style just different in color. She only lived a short distance from school but rather than go home and change she explained her fiasco to her students. She was always so perfect we just could not imagine her doing such a thing. I think following that day we looked at her as though she was almost human.

You had better know we all had one big chuckle out of the shoe episode. Have you thought that you do not have to be the one 'on center-stage' to share humor? Of course not. Just consider it, if some person is sharing a funny happening with you, what is your job? Laugh, of course you would. Now this ought not have to be a false laugh but a significant chuckle. Laughing with, not at someone is spreading their humor.

Most of us have a friend or have knowledge of someone that is known for his or her humor. They are fun to be with and we should always remember to share our chuckling with them. Now that you realise that humor can be shared without being a public orator, let's look at how an orator relates, or should relate, to his or her audience. They have a relationship that is obtained by mutual respect, trust and sympathising with the audience. Humor needs to be prepared exceptionally carefully. When it fails to be funny it can cause stress and discomfort.

This should not occur if you are able to follow a few guidelines. The first point to be considered is the difference between healthy and unhealthy humor. As you know, unhealthy humor has a victim. It shows a wicked spirit. There might be a laugh for this humor but it would most probably be one of nervousness. The sufferer is usually made to look different, not be very intelligent or prejudice.

Looking to healthy humor you will see it is just the opposite. It shows support and authorization in emphasizing the ways we are alike. This shows more understanding and sympathy. The laughing here comes from recognizing that we are all in the same boat and no one is isolated or made to appear different. In order to spread humor, the speaker must have a good demeanour. You must be able to enjoy humor.

It is crucial that you have a good relationship with the audience. This is sharing yourself in person so they will discover the speaker. Trust has to be established so the audience will not be nervous of anything you may share. A good insight or knowledge of the audience is a must as every joke or sentence plays on a particular emotion.

A complete understanding about the environment of the audience will put the speaker on conventional ground with them. This requires a lot of homework. If you don't know details of them, stay off from particular persons and places in your humor. Presentation is essential. The presentation of the punchline is important as well as giving the audience time to enjoy the punchline. The ultimate important issue with timing you must realise when to finish. Enjoyable humor goes a long way and it is way better to let them leave wanting more.
