The best man speech below has many solid characteristics of a good best man speech.
First and foremost, Ollie–the best man, presents himself very well speaking clearly and projecting nicely so that everyone can hear him. Though most people may not consider this, Ollie finds himself in a somewhat awkward poistion as he has to do his best man speech on the stairs.
Ollie is clearly fairly comforable speaking and he does many good things in this best man speech: He immediately toasts the bride and groom quickly bringing everybody into his speech. He mentions his knowledge of the couple and their long history together. He integrates humor and history nicely in this speech.
We have written much about blending sincerity and humor in a best man speech. Ollie does this nicely, integrating humor in with his sincere knowledge of the bride and groom.
