When was the last time you had a good laugh? You know, the kind of laughter that made your stomach hurt, or made you gasp for air. That’s how you know you’re having a good time - when you’re so happy that all you could do is laugh.
But here’s a funny thing - laughter may lift up your spirits, but it can actually do so much more than that.
A nice, hearty laugh relaxes your muscles for up to 45 minutes and helps reduce physical tension and stress. This also strengthens your immune system, since stress hormones can affect your antibodies. Of course, it’s not as good a trip to the gym, laughing for at least 10 minutes each day can help you burn off about 40 calories, which might help you lose three to four pounds in a year.
The best part? It’s FREE! You don’t need to pay a lot just to laugh. By that, we mean going to the completely free comedy show - Laughing Hour On The Square!
Brought to you by Colony Square, Laughing Hour On The Square brings together local comedians to bring a good laugh. Their first leg kicked off last April, but it will go on until October. They hold these shows every first Monday of the month, and they will once again be up on September 12, with the Whole World Improv Theatre performing their funniest acts!
Drinks, foods, and snacks are available at the upscale food hall Politan Row in Colony Square. There are lots of choices, so pretty sure you can fill up your tummy with good food, aside from the laughter!
However, seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. It is recommended that attendees bring their own extra blankets and chairs.
It is frequently scheduled for The Plaza to host this event. It will be moved to The Patio, a covered space between Politan Row and The Plaza, if it starts to rain. The show will go on unless there are harsh weather conditions!
After all, what else could stop the fun and hefty dose of laughter?
