Don't laugh a whole lot anymore, not worried on that score...

What happens to laughter? I don't laugh much anymore either.

Is laughter tied to novelty and things just aren't as novel as you age?

I think laughter goes to the same place that gray hair comes from.

I very actively seek out laughter. It's a big part of why I started doing the open mics. Yeah, it's attention, but it's also an excuse to attend a free comedy show on a regular basis. But even beyond that, a drama has to be extraordinary before it gets on my queue, whereas a comedy can be middling at best and I'll still watch it if I get 2-3 small laughs over the course of 30 minutes.

I used to. Now, not so much.

That makes me sad to hear. I don't have any handy advice, either. More thought required.

Here, try some Maria Bamford that just came out

This is literally the only thing I've ever laughed out loud at in over 40 years of Prairie Home Companion. She crushed it. Never mind the lame audience

Ok. That WAS funny. I laughed out loud at least 5 times. Especially the song about therapy.

It speaks for itself, really.

I can't imagine life without laughter. I seek humor in everything. pisses the oncologist off no end -he has NO sense of humor AT ALL. Imagine if it was a requirement for passing the board :D

Literally thirty seconds into that I could take the breathy, low impact, soft, PHC-style of speaking no longer. Nothing against PHC, but, anyone but Keillor sounds like they're trying way too hard to do it.


Anyway, what I came here for:
