About "Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch"
This speech was performed by Micah Jeub in Season 14 (2013-2014). He took 1st place for both Stoa’s National Invitational Tournament of Champions and NCFCA National Tournament. He has the honor of being the first student to win both national titles in the same event in one year.
The NCFCA eliminated Humorous Interpretation as an event, but they may be run in Open Interpretation instead. Stoa explains HI in this way on their website:
“In Humorous Interpretation the competitor creates an amusing, original rendition from a single piece of literature which captivates and entertains the audience. Stand-up comedy, or telling a series of jokes without a corresponding plot, is not Humorous Interpretation. Speakers select and analyze literature, then bring it to life through the creative use of voice, movement, and facial expression.”
Use this source material to enhance your understanding of expos. This speech is an excellent example of champion speaking. You may want to consider doing this event in Season 19.
