A Thought on Comedy

I believe that we all can say that the world is stressed. Both in the sense of hatred, violence, and bigotry and in the sense of the wars going on. It causes a sense of negative energy and anxiety for many people. If we add in the outbreak of Ebola, there is much pain in the world. There is a War on women started by the GOP. It is not limited to America. I don’t want to belabor these facts.


My father always said that laughter was healing. It is very good at balancing negativity and allowing our bodies and souls to exhale. I have decided that I wanted to give my readers something to make them laugh and laugh hard before going back to reality. It is important to detach and allow our bodies to destress. I hope you enjoy these videos.


The first video was one of my father’s favorite skits. It is very funny and I am sure many will remember it. The second video is one of my favorites. It is from the Carol Burnett show. From left to right you will see Tim Conway, Carol Burnett, Vicky Laurence and Dick Van Dyke. I hope you have a few minutes of stressless bliss. Feedback would be appreciated so I know if this is something that you feel is helpful.

    I do miss the “old” sitcoms so much, watch re-runs on TV> And yes, your dad was so right about the healing power of laughter, Barbara – thanks for this comic pause 😀 XX

  2. You are welcome. I use humor and sometimes sick humor to get me through rough patches. Medical people use sick humor. Being a nurse, I had to learn how to keep the good perspective to be able to really my psych patients. The irony is that I ran a forty-two bed lockdown unit and I remember their names and stories. Yet, there are times I can’t remember something last evening. Typical, but I still find it funny. Have a good day. Hugs, Barbara

  4. Laughter really is the best medicine, isn’t it? 🙂

  5. My first laugh of the day – thanks to you! I love Carol Burnett and used to watch her t.v. show when I was younger. Man, that show was hysterical.
