To Prepare:

Select your favorite comedian on YouTube.

Watch a video of the comedian, particularly looking for how the comic develops a joke/story that resonates with the audience.

Consider if and how the comedian abandons a joke/story that fails.

Consider whether the story was a success or failure, and why.

Explain how the comedian you watched was successful or unsuccessful in telling their story. Analyze how you discern when and if a story will be effective. Analyze methods you might use if the story to be told to an individual, group, or the organization is a vehicle for delivering good news or bad news.
