Public Speaking Tips:
Odd Body Angles


Do you remember Steve Martin with his Walk like an Egyptian routine? The main reason it was comical was because of the strange body angles. These angles may have been fine for Egyptian dancers, but hilarious for stand up comics. I do a routine where I do several sick looking Tai Chi moves. The audience can't help but laugh, and getting the audience to laugh is part of the art of public speaking.

Charlie Chaplain used the duck footed stance with his arms at his sides, but hands turned up. He also waddled along. Although, I am not an advocate of using a mirror in the Public Speaking Tips training, this is one time you can experiment in creating comical looking poses by thinking odd body angles. You'll guarantee more laughs with this technique of the Public Speaking Tips.
