Comedians Bring the X-Factor to your Event

The first person that coined the phrase about laughter being the best medicine undoubtedly had a very valid point. Laughter is indeed good for you, on many different levels. People flock to entertainment venues that feature stand-up comedians, and pay for the privilege of listening to, laughing at and being entertained by comedians’ amusing observations and stories.

Benefits of Laughter

Laughter is an outward expression of amusement, joy and happiness. People are automatically drawn to others who smile sincerely, are happy or funny, and they love to be in the company of others who make them laugh. Some of the benefits include:

  • When you’re laughing, your body releases endorphins – the body’s feel good chemicals.
  • Stress, tension, depression and anxiety lessen or disappear, at least for a while.
  • Blood circulation improves – a great benefit to the cardiovascular system.
  • Diffuses anger and negative emotions.
  • Boosts the immune system.
  • Is known to reduce physical pain and mental anguish.
  • Helps balance one’s perspective, resulting in a more positive attitude and sense of equilibrium.
  • Reduces inhibitions and enhances self-confidence, allowing one to laugh at oneself and/or situations.
  • Encourages spontaneity.
  • Laughter is contagious; it spreads the joy and enhances social cohesion.
  • Improves and strengthens relationships.
  • In a group context, laughter has a bonding, uniting effect, while placing group members in a more openly receptive state of mind.
