The Elements of Humor

Fellow speaker,

Accredited Speaker and Comedian John Kinde suggests there are three things to consider in humor:
  1. Tension - build up the tension by pausing or talking about a potentially challenging situation
  2. Surprise - find an unexpected way to release that built up tension that surprises your audience
  3. Relationships - this unexpected way will point out strange, unexpected inter-relationships about the nature of your situation 
Funnily enough,
