April is National Humor Month, and it’s the perfect time to think about infusing a little humor into your fun and lighthearted events. National Humor Month was founded by author and humorist Larry Wilde, with the goal of heightening public awareness around the therapeutic and restorative values of joy and laughter. It seems like every year, new studies provide support to the idea that laughter has a very positive impact on our health and well being.

They gathered a group of actors and writers from varied performing backgrounds, including The People’s Improv Theatre, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, NBC, College Humor, Super Deluxe, and Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, to create a live improvised show and to develop material for web/televised programming.
