Are You Sharing Humour?


My first thought upon reading the question, “Are you sharing humour?” was that this meant comedians or speakers. After giving some thought to the problem, I began to see that each one of us at some time or other should share our humour. I remember a teacher I had in school, came to school one day with a brown shoe on one foot and a black boot on the other. She had been in a hurry that morning and just grabbed a left shoe and a right shoe. They were the same style just different in colour. She only lived a short distance from school but rather than go home and change she shared her fiasco with her students. She was always so perfect we just could not imagine her doing such a thing. I think after that day we looked at her as though she was almost human.

You had better believe we all had one big laugh out of the shoe episode. Have you thought that you do not have to be the one speaking to share humour? Of course not. Just think about it, if someone is sharing a funny happening with you, what is your job? Laugh, of course. Now, this should not have to be a fake laugh but a meaningful laugh. Laughing with, not at someone is sharing their humor.

Most of us have a friend or know someone that is known for his or her humour. They are fun to be around, and we should always remember to share our laughter with them. Now that I have let you know that mood can be shared without being a public speaker make ’s look at how a speaker relates or should relate to his or her audience. They have a relationship that is acquired by mutual respect, trust and identifying with the audience. Humour needs to be prepared very carefully. When it fails to be amusing, it can cause tension and discomfort. This should not happen if you are willing to follow a few guidelines. The first thing to be considered is the difference between healthy and unhealthy humour. As you know, sick humour has a victim. It shows a malicious spirit. There might be a laugh for this humour but it would most likely be one of anxiety. The victim is usually made to look different, not be very intelligent or prejudice.

Looking at good humour, you will find it is just the opposite. It shows support and acceptance in emphasising the ways we are alike. This shows more understanding and empathy. The laughter here comes from recognising that we are all in the same boat and no one is isolated or made feel different. To share humour, the speaker must have a right attitude. You must be willing to enjoy the fun. It is essential that you have a good relationship with the audience. This is sharing yourself personally so they will know the speaker. Trust should be established so the audience will not be afraid of anything you might share. A good insight or diagnose of the audience is a must as every joke or statement plays on a particular emotion.

A complete understanding of the environment of the audience will put the speaker on common ground with them. This requires a lot of homework. If you don’t know about them, stay away from particular people and places in your humour. Timing is essential. The timing of the punchline is necessary as well as giving the audience time to enjoy the punchline. The final significant issue with timing you must know when to stop. Good humour goes a long way, and it is much better to let them leave wanting more.
