Special Occasion Speeches: The Roast
June 3, 2012 Leave a comment
For this project, I chose to roast a fellow member of my Toastmasters club and former work supervisor.
I picked one or two of her more salient characteristics and exaggerated the description of them for humorous effect. I closed the speech on a positive note expressing how those very characteristics make her such a great asset to the club.
As a whole, the speech was very well-received and got a lot of laughs. The one suggestion I received was to use more vocal variety to enhance the humor of the presentation.
