Laughing Matters


Everyone knows that maintaining a good sense of humor is important in everyday life – especially when it comes to the ups and downs of raising a family. On this program we’ll explore how we can all insert more laughter (the best medicine!) into our day-to-day lives while learning to laugh more as a family. We’ll find out why laughing is good for the bodies, minds and spirits of people of all ages and why with humor educator Mark Kay Morrison, medical laughter researcher Dr. Lee Berk and Scared Scriptless Improv’s Jason Martin.

PLUS, we delve into the science of laughter to learn how cracking up can keep disease levels down; little kids ages 4-8 tell us their best jokes; and we learn about humor as a traditional Inupiaq value.
