This spring time snowy Minnesota weather is no laughing matter-but we still need to keep laughing! We all laugh differently. Some have a high-pitched giggle, while others laugh with deep chuckles. Some snort, some cry, and some are silent when they are laughing. As much as the average person laughs, it is interesting that not many take the time to understand the different types of laughter. Here are some different kinds of laughter and what they mean.

  • Etiquette laughter. Some people chuckle to be polite as well as to get along with others. Laughter is also a way of bonding and agreeing with others.
  • Contagious laughter. Have you ever “caught” someone’s laugh? It happens all the time. Similar to a cold, laughter can be contagious. Just hearing the sound of laughter is enough to make someone giggle.
  • Belly laughter. This one is our favorite, and considered the most honest form of laughter. This laugh sounds different for everyone, and that’s just part of the fun. In a study conducted by Vanderbilt University, researchers found that men are more likely to grunt or snort at something they find funny, while women let loose with giggles and chuckles.

The past couple of posts have included suggestions on places to get your laughter started. This week we looked into a couple of local comedy clubs that are sure to get you laughing. Acme comedy club is located in Minneapolis and often features nationally recognized comics. They also offer reasonably priced dinner and a show packages. They are also wheelchair accessible which is great for clients with limited mobility. The brave new workshop is also located in Minneapolis and features improvisational comedy. They offer group discounts so have your client invite some friends. Their material covers a variety of topics so be sure to discuss the possibility of some R-rated jokes.
