Funny Speech Topics
Looking to get your audience laughing?  Had enough of serious and gloomy public speaking and speech ideas?  Then this list of humorous and funny speech topics is just what you need to select a great topic that'll not only get your audience interested, but get them cheered up.
I've mentioned in the article on Speech Humor, that being funny is almost always an acceptable (not to mention effective) way to treat an audience.  Humor not only relaxes the crowd, but it has a great effect on you, the speaker!

This means that you can never go wrong with selecting a funny speech topic (unless of course the occasion really demands something else).  Interesting and amusing topics keep audiences interested and provides a great backdrop for writing informative and funny content.

Writing on Funny Speech Topics

One thing to keep in mind though, is that unless your role will be that of a comedian, your primary role will not be to entertain, but to inform.

That means that you should ensure that your talk still has some good solid content in it and is still informative.  A funny topic, and the inherent humor it brings to your speech, will only help you get your message across so much clearer. 

That's the power of humor in public speaking!

When choosing one of the funny speech topics below, be sure to follow all the conventional wisdoms outlined in the How To Write A Speech section, for creating great content.
