"Nothing damages the perspective of a speech more than the feeling that the speaker is a braggart"
- Chris Anderson
Be yourself. The worst talks are the ones where someone tries to be who they are not. If you normally like to fool around, fool around. If you are emotional, be emotional. The only exception is arrogance, self-centeredness. If you're arrogant, self-centered, you have to do everything you can to not let it show.
There are speakers who use humor to deliberately get rid of their ego.
Criticizing oneself, badmouthing oneself, is something that, if done by the right person, can be very good.
Ego comes in many forms, forms that may actually be invisible to a speaker who is used to being the center of attention.
Concentrating on a talk can be difficult, and humor is a fantastic way to engage your audience. The laugh overrides the defenses of others, and suddenly you find yourself with an opportunity to communicate with them
