The Body of a speech is the bulk of a speech, coming between the opening and the conclusion. For Speech Contests, a contestant is usually required to use the Body of the speech to logically develop the point or points being made. A stand-up comedy routine may not be considered a speech because it usually doesn't have the logical development of a theme as required in the Body of a speech.

The Body of a speech may have up to three main points, while a TED Talk will usually have only one.
