    comma

    I'm trying to write an introduction speech for communication applications class. I want to know am I placing my comma in the right place.

    Thesis statement: I'm here today to share with the audience, Justin Timberlake's accomplishments.

    Did I place the common in the right place?

    Looking at the thesis statement, I have to ask if you are sharing your views and opinions of Justin Timberlake's accomplishments with any audience or a specific audience, OR are you merely sharing his accomplishments with the audience?

    It is better to be simple and direct, and this way you avoid the comma problem.
