Using Humor to Educate - Ideas Worth Spreading 

 

TED talks are a great way to burn through a day. You can learn so much in just under 15 minutes, whether you’re looking for education, inspiration, productivity hacks, or even just a good laugh. (you may even realize you’re addicted to your phone, or that it’s time to quit social media)The TED tagline is Ideas Worth Spreading, now isn't that what we all are striving for?

I’ve watched many other TED talks, including those “Funniest TED talks!” playlists. Even TED’s own site claims to have 13 on their list. While (almost) all of them are very educational, only a handful of them deserve to be listed as funny.

Trust me, if you want to laugh, these are the top ones worth watching. 

TED talks are great for a lot of things. They're educational, inspirational, and sometimes even funny. These are the 5 funniest TED talks I've ever seen.

Inside the mind of a master procrastinator – Tim Urban

Tim Urban may be one of the most engaging story tellers I’ve ever seen. He’s the creator and owner of the wildly popular blog, WaitButWhy, where he masterfully simplifies complicated topics, and simultaneously makes them incredibly entertaining.

In this TED talk, Urban “takes us on a journey through YouTube binges, Wikipedia rabbit holes and bouts of staring out the window, while encouraging us to think harder about what we’re really procrastinating on, before we run out of time.”

There’s also an Instant Gratification Monkey, which is great for obvious reasons.

This is what happens when you reply to spam email – James Veitch

This TED talk is currently one of the top 5 most viewed of all time, and for good reason. Writer and comedian James Veitch takes an all too familiar problem, receiving spam email, and turns it on his head.

I have shared it before, and it is worth sharing again as it is so relateable!

He tells the story of that one time he wondered “What happens when you actually reply to spam email?”, and then actually followed through on his curiosity.

The spammer never saw it coming…

The agony of trying to unsubscribe – James Veitch

Yep. James Veitch again. What can I say? The guy’s funny, and he knows his audience.

After his previous tear down of spam email, James wasn’t done just yet. It was now time to take on another irritating problem of the modern office job era, unsubscribing from email lists.

When James tried several times to unsubscribe from a local supermarket’s email list, and they kept on pestering him, he knew it was time for some more email hijinks.

It's Time For "The Talk" - Julie Sweeney

Despite her best efforts, comedian Julia Sweeney is forced to tell a little white lie when her 8-year-old begins learning about frog reproduction -- and starts to ask some very smart questions.

A key takeaway-"Only answer the question they're asking!" 

The happy secret to better work - Shawn Achor

Many believe that we should work to be happy, and that productivity inspires happiness, but could it be the other way around?

Frankly, those people have always been wrong. Working doesn’t give us the happiness we crave. And those same people have some incredibly misguided views on what true work-life balance really is. In fact, the less we work, the happier we will be. (that’s a topic for another time)

In Shawn Achor‘s TED talk, he discusses how we can reconfigure our brains to continuously create positive reactions, rather than the vicious cycle of negativity that success often brings. He also happens to do it in hilarious fashion.

This is one of my all time favorites!

Using humor to educate is one of the oldest tricks in the book, because it works. You just took in an incredible amount of information between these 5 videos, and there’s a good chance you’ll have an easier time remembering it because it made you laugh.

If you’re trying to teach an audience, inject your insightful speech with a little bit of humor. You’ll have everyone hooked on your every word.
