News and Resources Events UK National Laughter Championships Yes! Now it’s the time, the time for every laugher in the nation to show their laughter voice. A contest of natural contagious human joy. The search for the best laughers in the country. No, not stand-up comedy, but laughter for no reason – no reason except that it is the best medicine ever. Some people will come on stage in a pair or small group and show us how they laugh joyfully together. The audience will choose the winners. We are all welcome to compete, or sit back and enjoy. This is a We Stand Together event for people of all backgrounds and beliefs and languages to speak together with the universal languages of love and laughter. “Our aim is to get people to connect with each other through laughter, feel happier and enjoy life. 50 years of research backs up the fact that laughter really is a great medicine. It’s not a serious competition, no really it’s not, but a way to come together and make connections. The winner is chosen by the audience, and the prize cost us about 35p.” So get your laughing gear on! What could be a better way to start the autumn months? NOTE: This is a Laughter Yoga event and NOT A COMEDY EVENT.
