If It’s Funny, You Don’t Have to Laugh. If You go to a Stand Up Comedy Show, You’ll Have no Choice.

I remember my childhood days watching Saturday morning cartoons with my little brother. We would sit there, emotionless, watching The Bugs Bunny show. The show was hilarious, yet my brother and I never opened our mouths and uttered anything remotely resembling a laugh! Our old man would walk in and shout, in Spanish, “Rianse’!” (“Laugh!). I didn’t hold back my laughter on purpose and even though I watched the same episodes over and over again, I still found the show funny. I was watching cartoons with my little brother, and why would he care if I laughed or not? I’m sure he felt the same about me. Have you ever watched something really funny on TV, while you’re alone, and not uttered a peep? There is no need to do so. Think of the old adage, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it…” Now apply it to this situation and rephrase that to, “If something is funny and no one is around to hear you laugh…”‘

What I just described illustrates why, going to a Live Stand Up
Comedy Performance, is an experience unmatched by no other! Next time you’re debating on where to go on your night out, consider taking a detour to a comedy club near you. The laughs will not only be contagious, but guaranteed! Start your night out with some laughs and watch how much more fun you’ll have as you continue your after party!

I am a father, company manager, and a stand up comic. Being a stand up comic is the least funniest of the three.
