Humor sells. Humor convinces. Humor instructs. Humor entertains. Humor communicates. Whether your audience numbers one or one thousand, humor is the ideal vehicle to capture interest, attention, and approval.
But it has to be the short, dynamic humor of today—not the long-winded stories and anecdotes that amused our grandparents. One-liners get the laughs and carry the message because they are so easily quotable. A good one-liner makes its point in less time than it takes a story just to establish a premise.
