The "Laughter Magazine" magazine had its humble beginnings as an advertising flier for the Traveling Laughter Club which was being showcased at Jimmy Tingle's OFFBROADWAY Theater.
I was passing a four-page flier on the subway. To let people know what I was passing out I made a one-page sign. People going by kept grabbing my advertising sign and getting upset when I told them, "This is just an ad!"
I decided that since people wanted the one-page sign so badly it had to be the front cover for a future magazine. That magazine is now a reality, showcasing published articles about the benefits of laughter by University Medical Center research groups, information about laughter clubs and original jokes, one liners and cartoons.
With each published magazine we hope to further increase the readers' scope of what laughter can do for you and where you can go to be with like-minded individuals who also love to laugh.
