What are topical jokes?
Topical jokes are jokes based on some current event. Topical jokes can be very useful for opening speeches or presentations because they’re a great way of getting people’s attention. Topical jokes can be found in a number of places on the web, including this blog. The only bad thing about topical jokes is that they sometimes have a short shelf-life.
If you would like some original topical jokes for your next speech or presentation, I can put together a package for you. Send me an e-mail with notes about your upcoming event and contact information if you’d like to discuss it.
