According to the Mayo Clinic, laughter can reduce stress, stimulate your organs, relieve pain and increase your overall satisfaction in life.
The Laugh Café is a participatory group where you will bring your favorite jokes, humorous stories, riddles or personal tales and provoke others (and yourself) to laughter. You don’t have to memorize your joke; if you want to, you may read it! If you feel shy, and don’t want to read it, someone else may do it for you. Moderated by Tom Reynolds
