To bring enjoyment and laughter to your audience makes any speech memorable. To present an entertaining social speech you also set a lighter tone for the occasion.
What is an entertaining speech?
An entertaining speech is one which is interesting, pleasurable and may be amusing to the audience.
It has a clear message, as do informative, persuasive and motivational speeches; however, entertaining speeches are typically different. They are often delivered on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, dinner events, farewells and acceptance of awards. These can be referred to as social speeches or special occasion speeches.
Entertaining speeches can also be used on mundane occasions to arouse the audience or to stir their emotions. Many effective speeches include elements of an entertaining speech as speakers use stories, anecdotes and other techniques to add humour to their message.
