Humorous Interpretation

Humorous Interpretation is an event in National Forensic League and  high school forensics competitions.

In a typical round of HI, five to seven performers will each perform a comedic "cutting" (excerpt) from a published play, novel, movie script, or short story. Some performers select monologues, others may adopt the roles of several characters, changing their tone of voice, manner of speaking, and bodily position to indicate a change in character. Performers are constrained in their acting repertoire: the use of props or costumes is forbidden.

After all of the competitors have performed, the judge (or judges) in the round will rank them from best to worst.
