Q: Can you recommend some speeches that could make the judges laugh and be interested?
A: Good question Tristan. Actually, this is where reading your audience comes in, which of course means that I cannot give you a straight forward answer. As you begin your speech, carefully watch the judge's facial expressions, and that can help tell you where to go. Do they look board, amused, offended? I find it handy to have 2 or 3 versions of the same speech at hand, so I use the one that fits the audience.
Hopefully, this will be of some help.
