1 Minute Speech on Humour In English

Good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Humour’.

Humour, as a noun and a verb, has different meanings. As a noun, it is defined by Google to be “the quality of being amusing or comic, especially as expressed in literature or speech.” It is thus the tendency to induce laughter or elicit a smile. Simply put, it is to be “funny” or “hilarious”. 

Humour also happens to be a genre in the field of art, including literary works as can be seen from this definition. 

It could be “a mood or state of mind” as well wherein being in good humour represents a good mood. 

As a verb, Google defines it to be “comply with the wishes of (someone) in order to keep them content, however unreasonable such wishes might be.” Here, it is, essentially, to indulge one’s whims.

There also exist several types of humour including witty, satirical, deadpan/dry, self-deprecating, and dark.

Thank you.
