1. Start with A Question.
2. Start with a relevant story.
3. Start with curious & bizarre fact.

“There are more people alive today than have ever died” is actually incorrect.

1. Ask if anyone has seen "deez".
2. Tell everyone that "updog" is everywhere.
3. Ask if "Joe" is in the audience. Follow up with "Joe mama".

Don't give out incorrect "facts," that's also a good place to start.

Roughly 50 times more people have died than are alive today. I can't believe this myth keeps getting repeated. Do a little research.

I knew someone who always used to start a speech with, "It gives me great pleasure and it has done for years." Always got a laugh.
