audience connection, humor -
you'll find abundant examples throughout

"'Go Ahead and Laugh' is a
great resource for anyone looking to add humor to their
presentations. By including entire speech texts and then analyzing
those speeches, the book creates a simple but powerful structure
that moves beyond theory and into application. I don't know any
other book on speaking or humor that does this, and the result is
very effective. I have taught and performed humor and comedy for
over sixteen years, and I found myself re-thinking my approach to
sections of my speech. I would recommend this book to anyone who not
only wants to be a funnier speaker, but who also wants to see
examples of great humor in action."
