Humorous Retirement Speeches - Some Great Examples

Humorous retirement speeches and retirement toasts can go down very well but it's still important that you convey your best wishes to the person retiring (or the people still working if it's you that's retiring).

Some speakers can remember jokes or even make them up on the spur of the moment, but it's best to prepare beforehand.

Then you can make sure that you include the right balance of humour and good wishes.

For example, you might think it appropriate to say:

We're absolutely delighted that you're retiring today. Sure we'll miss you, but we'd also like to congratulate you on winning your freedom from your alarm clock.

On the other hand, you might regret saying on the spur of the moment:

We're absolutely delighted that you're retiring today. Not having you here will make our lives so much easier.
