Mmm I'd have to go, to see what I think. I think I would feel very silly and forced, but who knows eh!

The man running it must have the healthiest MH and Physical health on the planet!

Anyone have any good 'Infectious laughter' links????

The forced laughter has the same benefits, it is believed, as the natural laughter. And besides...fake laughter soon turns to real laughter (in my vast experience!!:p)

Any kind of laughter will do....only comedy for me these days.

I understand that laughter also reduces physical pain...and can help the body to heal from all sorts of physical ailments.

I had a giggling fit earlier - I feel like I have had a workout. Laughter is very bonding....so, me, I'm a BIG fan. I haven't tried one of the workshops - probably need to be close to a city for that. Hopefully one day. Meantime I will get infected online. :p
