Summary Laughter Yoga, laughter Parties, Laughercize, and other laughter-oriented health trends have spawned a new approach to laughter. It involves using laughter to make people laugh instead of jokes. Simple laughter, according to Laughology, may be helpful in reducing heart disease, fighting stress, and increasing immunity. The film features 'The Laughman, ' Doug Collins, a Memphis resident who is said to have the most contagious laugh in the world. It also explores phenomena such as holy laughter, laughter epidemics, laughter parties, and the origins of laughter yoga. Could laughing be a remedy to seriousness?
Note Special features include trailer, laughing yogi, Dr. Kataria's origins, Dr. Kataria's science, Sophie Scott & Doug Coliers, Robert Province, understanding laughter.
