Injecting Humor Into Public Speaking

For many, the idea of public speaking is petrifying — nobody wants to put an audience to sleep with a dull talk. One solution: learn from stand-up comics and inject a little humor into your speech. 

Guest:

  • David Nihill is the author of Do You Talk Funny?: 7 Comedy Habits to Become a Better (and Funnier) Public Speaker.

David Nihill speaks at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 3 at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library. To reserve a seat, visit www.kclibrary.org.
