Humor speech contest

Last Tuesday was my Toastmaster’s club humor speech contest. I was one of the 5 or 6 contestants from our club. Peter and Bill are known as the funny guys, and they placed 1st and 2nd as expected. I did get 3rd.

The speech I gave was called “Age Discrimination” and was about the many times Jon has been mistaken for my father. I gave it almost a year ago to the Daktronics Brookings club and they suggested that I polish it and enter it. So I did! I think I would have done better back home where they understood my humor a bit more.

Delphy put the contest on her video blog. I am the first contestant so you don’t have to watch the whole thing to see me! :-)

This Saturday I am the contest chair for our Area contest.

  1. Right. I do think if the audience were native English speakers, they could understand your humor more.

    Thanks for the links. I also linked your blog to my videoblog.
