Laughter is the best medicine!


We took my brother and sister-in-law to see Craig Shoemaker at T's Comedy Club in Rancho Cordova, CA on Saturday night. It was our gift to my brother, who is turning 50 on November, 4th. What fun! We laughed for a solid 1.5 hours! If you have a chance to catch this funny, funny comedian, do so. You will not be sorry. His rendition of "The Love Master" will have you rolling. And what could be better during these rough times? Laughter is the best medicine!

Disclaimer: He's a bit racy!

All those standup comedians tends to be a bit racy, but I have to agree that laughing can make your soul's sun come out.

When you laugh hard (or cry hard) it empties all the lymph glands in your body, so it is literally healing as well as lots of fun. The laughing, not the crying.

Glad you had a blast!

Norman Cousins laughed his way out of rheumatoid arthritis - well, that and massive doses of vitamin C!

So true that laughter is the best medicine. I'm glad you all had a wonderful time. What I want to know is if you cooked that tasty dish you were talking about in an earlier post.

Nancy said...

Jerie - Yes! I showed up at his house, armed with my pans, knives, all the food. I quickly got started, cooked the dinner and then we were off to the Comedy Club. Ended up doing the dishes the next morning. But it turned out great. Leftovers were plentiful, and it was very inexpensive!

Nancy said...

Expat - I can tell by your comment - you've seen him!

Wihtout a doubt, laughter is the best medecine. And to be able to share it with family is that much greater. Congrats to your brother on reaching this milestone. It all begins from here!

I think we've heard him on Blue Collar Radio on satellite radio. Sometimes I put that on to keep my husband amused while driving.

I remember reading about a man who signed himself out of hospital and checked into a hotel for 2 weeks worth of room service food and comedy films. He made a complete recovery :-)
