When you’re laughing, when you’re laughing…

I love to laugh.  Really laugh, as in from the diaphragm.  It feels really good. Sometimes I will become hysterical over the silliest things, like a crack Sofia makes on The Golden Girls or the funny faces Jim and Pam make on re-runs of The Office.

When I saw Bill Cosby’s Las Vegas show about 25 years ago, I  was practically rolling on the floor. Bill takes himself too seriously now, but he sure was funny back in the day.

It’s sometimes embarrassing to be walking down the street alone, think of something amusing and feel a big laugh coming on.  Thank goodness, that doesn’t happen too often.

I never thought clowns were funny as a kid, and I wasn’t a big fan of Abbott and Costello, Lucille Ball or The Three Stooges, but I adored Jackie Gleason Groucho Marx, Carol Burnett, Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks. My dad and I would listen to Brooks’ 2000 Year Old Man routines over and over and laugh every single time.

Yesterday my FOF friend, Leigh, emailed me a link to a You Tube video with this message: “Hi Geri, Just in case you haven’t seen this woman, laughed so hard ‘my water broke and I’m not even pregnant!’ What an FOF.”

Leigh was right. FOF Jeanne Robertson gave me six plus minutes of pure pleasure. I don’t know where this woman has been my whole life, but now that I’ve met her, I never want to let her go. Watch for yourself. I hope she makes your day.

    Laughing is good for your health, crying simply sucks.

    Listening to Jeanne Robinson, all I can think about is Minnie Pearl. There is something about a straight-talking Southern woman.

    I saw Bill Cosby when I was about 12 (I’m now 60). He was opening for the Smothers Brothers. He was absolutely hilarious. I think this was before he was on television. Anway, I still remember thinking that he was just as entertaining as the Smothers Brothers.
