Laughter: Fuel for the Soul

Pic from a couple years ago but it's basically how I looked all night
Mj's friends cousin has been doing stand up comedy around town.  Friday night we went to one of his shows.  During the week I saw a commercial for sparkling wine.  I can't even remember what brand, but ever since then I had a craving for it and I was really excited about going to the show just so I could get some.

The last show we went to seemed a little bit like amateur night so I wasn't sure what to expect.  There were 7 comics and they got 10 minutes each.  The host opened the show.  He was hilarious.  Good sign.  These guys were all good.  One after another each comic got on stage and made us laugh.  Good old fashioned straight from the belly mouth wide open head tilted back uncontrollable laughter.  I laughed hard and loud in between sips of my sparkling wine; thank goodness they had some!  Laughter is such good fuel for the soul.  It just makes you feel good.  I love laughing and I love to see Mj laugh.  He was laughing so hard his eyes were all watery and teary.  For a second I thought about what a racket the night was.  It cost us $10 each to get in and on top of that there was a two drink minimum at $7 each.  That's $24 bucks each just to get in the door!  But it was a really good show and we were supporting a friend.  Laughing out loud for almost 2 hours straight while drinking wine after long week of work was well worth the price of admission.

I love comedy shows! I used to book comedians for my college, so I did see quite a few duds on the amateur nights, but when they are good, they are good!!

You look so happy and carefree! I have never been to a comedy show before. I will put that on my to-do-list!

CC, this sounds like such a fun night! I have wanted to go to a comedy club for such a long time, but seriously don't know where one is around here! It would be such a fun date! And you're right, laughter is good for the soul! :)
