Humor Monologue delivered at Toastmasters meeting – Nov 28, 2012

Read the set-up below and then read the monologue.

THE SET-UP (What was said and what happened during the meeting before the monologue was delivered)

1. Word of the day was ‘BREAK’.

2. Marcel, during his speech, told that he wouldn’t look at audience’s eyes while delivering speech, rather he would look at their foreheads.

3. Jan gave a speech on ‘inspiring someone’. He brought a big DSLR camera and talked about pictures and photography and inspired the audience. During the presentation, one of the pictures in the slide was moving back and forth.

4. During table-topics speech, Jan told that his father has 9 children. When Jan was young, his father was not able to buy 9 Christmas presents for 9 children.

5. Chris, during his speech, called Marcel on to the stage and asked him to translate few English sentences to Indonesian language.


1. While I speak, I don’t look at the eye of the audience. Rather I look at 1, 2, 3, 4, four heads. (While delivering this line, I looked at 4 persons in the audience back and forth)

2. There is no wonder why Jan has such a big camera. He can’t take a family picture with a small camera. Yeah, Father, Mother and 9 kids.

3. Jan’s father should’ve taken a BREAK.

4. My grandfather had 9 kids too. He was poor and was unable to buy Christmas gifts for each kid. So he gave only one gift in total to all of them. And the gift was 10th kid.

5. That picture in Jan’s slide shivered because it’s cold in here.

6. Thank you all!! Well, before I leave, Marcel, please translate that to Indonesian language.
