Laughter Yoga, Laughter Parties, Laughercize, and other laughter-oriented health trends have spawned a new approach to laughter. It involves using laughter to make people laugh instead of jokes. Simple laughter, according to Laughology, may be helpful in reducing heart disease, fighting stress, and increasing immunity. Laughology features 'The Laughman,' Doug Collins, a Memphis resident who is said to have the most contagious laugh in the world.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!.... Whether it's natural, or whether it's manufactured - When it comes to the likes of laughter (be it chuckling, giggling, snickering, tittering, or whatever) - You can be sure that any form of this type of expression is, indeed, often the best medicine.

In this informative and often-amusing documentary about laughter - We join Canadian writer/director, Albert Nerenberg as he travels the world in order to learn all about the history (as well as the art) of - What else, but? - Laughter.

And what Nerenberg discovers about laughter is that (sometimes) it's no laughing matter. I mean, you don't have to be drunk or stoned to enjoy a good, old belly-laugh once-in-a-while.

So, if laughter is something that seems to be missing from your life - Just sit back, relax, and let this laugh-filled documentary teach you all about the rewarding benefits of "laughter therapy" - Where laugh-gurus believe that the deliberate suppression of laughter can be even more harmful than you ever imagined.

So, laugh-it-up, folks - You only live once..... (*Watch "Laughing" music-video*)
