You’re scheduled to give a business presentation, pitch investors, or deliver a wedding toast. And you’re petrified. You’re simply not cut out for public speaking.

David Nihill has walked—and talked—in your shoes. The Irish-born comedian and public speaker went from being deathly afraid of standing in front of an audience to regularly performing stand-up routines and winning storytelling competitions in front of packed houses. He did it by learning from some of the world’s best public speakers: stand-up comics.

Nihill shares the principles of stand-up comedy and how they can be applied to all public speaking in a humorous discussion of his book Do You Talk Funny? 7 Comedy Habits to Become a Better (And Funnier) Public Speaker.
