This guy is really funny. He could work on his annunciation and his posture. He had lots of good ideas and jokes. I understand what he's going through speaking in front of his peers, but I think he can be better at keeping his material more formal. His material is very informal and funny, but its a valedictorians speech. I definitely respect his courage to speak in public with such confidence.
This dude made people feel comfortable which I think is the most important thing to do. He definitely could practice pronouncing his words and slowing down, that would definitely improve his speech. I do respect him for getting the courage to crack those jokes. All around I like the speech.
He was really funny, and his jokes were easy to listen to, and easy to laugh at, instead of forcing yourself to laugh. Although he was funny, he never talked about real content, but instead was full of jokes. He didn't seem nervous and was somewhat confident in front of a large crowd, but he paused awkwardly like he needed to really think of what to say next. He used decent body language, but his posture was very slack and not professional. Overall he was good at talking and very funny, but his content was very casual and didn't fill the role that the speech was about.
I think he entertained the audience very well. He said "um" a lot and would constantly move around. He should have not apologized on stage and kept it too his self next time. He was very laid back, maybe a little too laid back for a Valedictorian speech. It was not boring and it was funny and made me laugh several times. If he was more serious and didn't make a joke every sentence then the speech would have been perfect.
The guy giving this speech is really funny. He also gave some good life advice for his fellow graduates. He entertained the audience at all times although some of his speech was not appropriate for the occasion. I think he needs to be a little more relaxed and professional next time. I also think that instead of just trying to be funny the whole time he should take his time and talk about something more useful.
I really liked how he didn't take himself too seriously. He made everyone there laugh at an event which otherwise would be kind of dull. He could however, stand to slow himself down and learn when it is the right time to take a pause. I understand that he is nervous, but he needs to learn to take himself more seriously. i think overall, he did a very good job.
his speech was extremely entertaining and funny which made it easy to listen to. he made the audience laugh and feel at home like the speech was just casual. his pauses in between words can be improved on and may annoy some people but to me it was all better for the funny factor... this guy has guts that most people wouldnt have to be able to go up there and tell jokes like that... over all he has the right skills to be a good speaker, he just needs to hone them in to be truly great
He was very interesting and kept the crowd interested throughout the whole speech. He was always making the audience laugh and feel comfortable with him.I think he should calm himself a bit more and speak more clearly so that everyone can fully understand him. He was very brave and tried his best to make everyone laugh and not be so stressed, which he accomplished. He did his best and I respect his courage. It is not easy making a speech in front of that many people.
(also I spelled my name wrong so go me. ^)
I liked how he kept peoples attention. He made some funny jokes which is good. But he was informal this situation he should have been a bit more formal. He had a lot of long awkward pauses. He said um a lot. It was good that he was making references to things people know and or could relate to. Although some of the references where a bit inappropriate for that situation.
But in my opinion i would love for him to give a speech anytime he he makes jokes like that.
He seemed very unsure of himself and/or what he was doing in the beginning of his speech, for example the fact that he said hi to his audience like 3 times. Besides that his jokes were pretty hilarious & he kept the mood lightened. Maybe he could've been more professional giving his speech by not saying umm as much or apologizing for messing up. I know it would be pretty hard to give a speech in front of your whole student body, administration & parents, so he handled that well. Also, not a lot of people can give a speech & actually keep their audiences attention & he was really good at that. Overall i really liked his speech.
You could tell that he knew what he was going to say by the way that he presented each subject that he spoke on in a clear order. Also, he easily kept the audience paying attention to him with hilarious jokes and comments. However, in the future he remember to control his movements on stage so that the audience wont be paying attention to things other that his speech, unless he does it on purpose. I understand this problem, I would do this every time i spoke in front of a group of people before someone told me about it. Also, it would help if he practiced presenting his speech in a mirror and working on weeding out the "um"s. I have learned that using a mirror to practice public speaking is very useful.
This guy is very funny when he speaks. He incorporates comedy with his speech in a good way. Although he seems a little nervous with his hand gestures and head movements. He is giving a speech in front of thousands of people and for a valevictorians speech it was very entertaining. I think he did a good job on delivery and his speech was very comical and enjoyable to watch
He was very funny, but he could work on his posture some. Also i liked how he kept peoples attention with his jokes. But i think he was a little to informal for this kind of event, for a graduation he should have been a little more formal and a little less informal. Although him messing up in some parts might have been part of his speech, it seems as if he didn't practice as much as he should have for this kind of speech. But he did a good job over all but those are some pointers to what could have made it great instead of just good.
The Sophomore class will be sharing their experiences as they learn about public speaking.
