Treat a topic suggestion as a prompt to think about yourself and the situations you’ve been in. Real stories from our own lives are often the most appealingly amusing of them all!

These don’t have to be rollicking-fall-off-the-chair-roll-on-the-floor-cry-with-laughter events. An ordinary collection of foibles mixed with the silliness of everyday life is enough to make an audience smile – mostly because they recognize the truth and see elements of themselves in what you’re sharing!

For instance, the first topic in my first group of fifteen is, ‘How to procrastinate like a professional – ten top tips’.

How does that topic, procrastination, apply to you? Or to others close to you?

When a speech is due is that a cue to go for a run, a very long one, because we all know exercise is an important part of ensuring optimum brain function? When you come back you’ll be full of bright ideas and get right into it.

Is it time to clean the fridge? Or chat to a long lost second cousin? Or party up large because the deadline is still a few days away?

Acknowledging and laughing in a kindly way at ourselves is funny. We’re human. We all try to fool ourselves – some of us more than others.

Take the truths you find, add imagination, a little exaggeration for comedic effect, and write!

At the foot of the page you’ll find links to help you craft your speech. Sadly, intentionally “funny” speeches rarely are, without effort! 

  How to procrastinate like a professional – ten top tips.

  My worst embarrassing experience.

  Five sure-to-impress excuses for not handing in your homework (getting to work on time, coming home on time…)
