If I could earn a living doing the one thing I love it would be making people laugh. Whether its with punchlines, or talking about a situation that wasn’t meant to be funny, making people laugh has a great effect on everyone involved. Making people laugh is not about having them laugh at you, rather with you. It’s a way of saying that we all go through common situations, and laughing at those situations shows that we are not so different. I think making people laugh, especially when they are not feeling too happy about life, is more about giving than taking, because you give them something they didn’t expect to have in that moment, joy.
