It’s serious.


Being able to make people laugh is such a gift.

I usually caution air talent not to try too hard to make us laugh because they fail so often. They’re not actually comedians.

But if you have that gift, for God’s sake USE IT!

People who use humor to cope with stress have better immune systems, reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, experience less pain during dental work and live longer. Surgery patients who watched comedies needed 60% less pain medication. Heck, even anticipating humor has been shown to reduce stress.

Humor improves your relationships. Surveys say it’s the second most desirable trait in a partner. When both people in a couple have a good sense of humor they have 67% less conflict. (Want a tip? Reliving moments that made the two of you laugh is a proven way to increase relationship satisfaction.)”
*(All quotes from Barking up the wrong tree.)
