     Humorous interpretation, also referred to as Humor, is a category in speech that focuses on creating multiple unique, distinct, and extravagant characters throughout a ten minute performance. A humor speech is generally a play, or a movie script, or a story of some type that involves characters interacting with each other. These works of literature usually require being cut down to the required ten minutes. The speech does need to be memorized.

     This event challenges the competitor to form realistic distinct characters through different facial expressions, body language, voices, etc. This leaves room for a lot of creativity. The speech itself generally portrays an important message within the story. As you probably took away from the title itself, Humor speeches are usually more uplifting and tend to make the audience smile and laugh.
