Funny lists

Fellow speaker,

Professional Comedian speaker Judy Carter suggests use this list formula to get laughs from your audience:
  1. Big issue
  2. Big issue
  3. Small issue
 For example: "It's scary out there: the world is getting warmer,  homicides are up, people think plaid is a good fashion choice!"
  1. Small
  2. Small
  3. Big
For example: "Here are three subtle clues that your husband is cheating on you: he doesn't kiss you as passionately, he looks away when you are talking, he introduces you to his fiancee."
