Public Speaking Skills: 

Odd Body Angles

Do you remember Steve Martin with his Walk like an Egyptian
routine? The main reason it was so funny was because of the strange body angles he used. These moves might have been fine for Egyptian dancers, but look absolutely ridiculous when used by stand up comics. I do a routine where I do several sick looking Tai Chi moves. The audience can't help but laugh at how funny I look, and getting the audience to laugh is part of using your public speaking skills.

Charlie Chaplain used the duck footed stance with his arms at his
sides, but hands turned up. He also waddled along. Although, I
am not an advocate of using a mirror in training, this is one time you can experiment in creating funny looking poses by thinking odd body angles. You'll guarantee more laughs when using this technique with your public speaking skills.
