All Laughs Really Do Matter

The Blackpack – three very funny African-American comedians – bring their show, All Laughs Matter, to The Clayton Center stage on Friday, January 20, at 8 PM. And while the Blackpack’s theme is a good-natured, often brutally honest look at our national political spectrum, the show’s title highlights a universal truth: All laughs matter because laughter is good medicineClayton Center laugh.

That’s right, research shows that laughter really is good for your health. Laughter relaxes the body, boosts the immune system, protects the heart, diffuses anger, burns calories and best of all, may even help you to live longer. A study in Norway found that people with a strong sense of humor outlived those who don’t laugh as much.
