Embrace comedy

“I had a dream last night; I was eating a ten pound marshmallow. I woke up this morning and my pillow was gone.”  Are you laughing already at Comedian Tommy Cooper’s quote? Welcome to my world where comedy rocks as the best hobby ever.

“I had a dream last night; I was eating a ten pound marshmallow. I woke up this morning and my pillow was gone.”  Are you laughing already at Comedian Tommy Cooper’s quote? Welcome to my world where comedy rocks as the best hobby ever.

God must have spent a little more time on the brilliant brains of comedians. Having the ability to make people laugh isn’t a simple thing. Virtually, every comedian has his/her own type of humor ranging from short witty jokes to funny stories but whatever their comedy is like, laughing at the jokes (unless they are not funny) is inevitable.

Comedians and comedy lovers alike are often considered unserious but that doesn’t stop the comedy industry from thriving. Comic reality shows, standup comedy routines, funny movies are as common as breakfast today.

Why comedy is the best relaxation ever:

Laughter is a strong medicine for the body and mind. Laugh aloud to those silly jokes because laughter has been proven a remedy for stress, pain and conflict.

“Nothing works faster or more effective to bring your mind and body back to balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens up your burdens, inspires your hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert,” is a statement from helpguide.org, an online help resource.

Comedy simply opens up one’s attitude and approach to life on a daily basis. Comedy is well on its way to breaking the hassles that come with this competitive world.

Did you know that comedy also educates us? The most effective way to successfully school anyone about anything is through comedy.

Sure Urunana, Kanyombya and other reality radio comedies have addressed family issues, sensitized against HIV /AIDS and anything else that we can think of however, it is the comedy that makes thrills the masses to take heed.

Comedy goes beyond laughter and creates a wonderful bond for people. In fact, comedy is more contagious than flu or cough. Who wouldn’t feel at home in a laughing community anyway?  Ever watched how strangers share laughter at those TV stand-up comedy shows? Recently, my ribs nearly cracked as I laughed at this Ugandan female comedian who cried out loud for being dumped yet she is Tanzanian {as if dumping comes with tribe}! The laughter was in unison with her NTV audience. There are higher chances of lifetime friendships developing from such events.

Who would reject a humorous person anyway?  Hilarious and entertaining people are hard to find. If TV, a bar or a movie can provide all the laughter needed in the world, then comedy is worth it.

The only problem is that it takes talent and a massive sense of humor to be a comedian. I take my enthusiasm for comedy to another level because comedy is such a cool thing.
