Public Speaking : Simile

Similes are a great way to add some odd-ball humor to your public speaking events. This technique compares things together using the words “like” and “as.” For humor sake, doing this works the best when the comparison is a stretch.

In one of your public speaking presentations, you might say like, “Public speaking is as easy as teaching a cheetah to play the guitar.” These are two dramatically different subjects so putting them together automatically creates some kind of humor. Plus, a cheetah that playing the guitar draws up a funny image.
Be creative in your similes but make sure they add to your public speaking event. Don’t just throw them in without a purpose!
