Make Them Laugh

Laugh

“Now you could study Shakespeare and be quite elite.

And you can charm the critics and have nothin’ to eat.

Just slip on a banana peel,

The world’s at your feet!

Make ’em laugh

Make ’em laugh

Make ’em laugh!”

These words from the old classic musical Singin’ In The Rain, hold some great advice for podcast guests!  If you are looking to make an immediate connection with the podcast host and their audience, start your interviews off with a little bit of humor.

Remember, boredom is your enemy.  You want to bring stellar content to your interviews, but if you listeners are bored, they’ll never even hear the amazing things you have to say.  Poet George Herbert once said “In conversation, humor is worth more than wit and easiness more than knowledge.” Entertainment and content always go hand and hand!

Try getting some tips from your favorite comedians.  Learn or joke or two – even if its corny!  What humor can you find in your own entrepreneurial journey, and how can you share it with your audience?  When you are willing to be genuine and share your personality, you becoming engaging, entertaining, and you’ll make your audience want to hear what you have to say!
