Humour should be used if it supports your key messages. Most attempts at humour are met with an uncomfortable silence, because they are outside the context of the presentation topics. If you want to try adding humour to your presentation then at least make the humour relevant to the content – why tell a golf joke when your presentation is not about golf? Another guideline for those that want to add humour; everyone in the world already knows every one-liner uttered by Yogi Berra – so at the very least be original.
