  5. 5. Appeal to emotions Emotional appeals are best marketing strategy If from the beginning of your speech, you evoke strong emotion from the audience, you have their attention. These strong emotions include fear, pain, anger and in the case of comedy, happiness. If they laugh at your jokes, they agree with you.
  6. 6. Make you seem relatable 14 To talk funny often means you have to open up and share personal stories with your audience. E.g: making fun of yourself, sharing what you truly think about XYZ This puts you in a vulnerable position. It can be terrifying. But if you're able to make them laugh, you know they're starting to like you, and will be more likely to agree with your next statement.
