Persuasive and Funny w/o Stand-up

A Toastmaster pal sent this clip to me, and I thought it worth sharing…

The speaker is Andy Dooley, and the speech is given during a Toastmasters Humorous Speech contest.  What I found of great interest is how he is able to be funny without diverting into standup or slapstick…and at the same time delivering a message of value.

Now I know it ain’t the Gettysburg Address, and perhaps his message will not bring all the worlds peoples together.  But my experience is that our every day lives are often benefitted by keeping in mind fundamental lessons.
