a good sense of humour can make all the difference, a great example of this was Ronald reagan when he had a presidential debate.he was defuse the age issue and lots of other things by what he said and by the manner in which he said it. so when the age issue came up in the dabate ,he said"well,i konw that some people concernd about age as being an issue in this selection,but i promise i will not use my opponent"youth and inexperience aginst him." how wisedom is he !it was showmanship. so i think humor plays an important role in speech .

It could make the audience alive.Mostly people never listen to any speech specially when its boring but if theres something that could catch the audience attention it would be something that would make them listen and i guess a good sense of humour could help.
