Six of the best at Casterbridge Speakers will be competing for the Club Humorous Speech Competition; and a brave four for the impromptu Table Topics Competition.

If you want to have an hilarious evening, then please come along. The meeting is free and open to anyone who is interested being in the audience. You can learn so much from the competitors as well as have fun.

Competitors in the Humorous Speech are required to deliver a prepared speech of 5 – 7 minutes. This is not be a series of jokes, but a well structured presentation on any topic with a humorous content. In contrast, the Table Topics requires contestants to speak for 1- 2 minutes on a subject they will be given just moments beforehand. This demonstrates the skill of quick thinking, impromptu speaking.

The winners from each contest will go forward to represent Dorchester at the area competition in November. Last year's winners from this club made it to the national finals.
