Overview

Dr. Brian King is a psychologist and stand-up comedian whose humor therapy seminars are attended by more than ten thousand people each year. In The Laughing Cure, King combines wit with medical research to reveal the benefits of laughter and humor on physical and emotional health. King's language is humorous and uplifting, and his advice is backed by science. Studies featured in The Laughing Cure show how laughter lowers blood pressure, reduces stress hormones, increases muscle flexion, boosts immune systems, and triggers endorphins. They show how laughter relieves depression, and even makes us more productive, loving, and kind. The tips and techniques featured inside can be used for current conditions and as preventative medicine. Through humor and science King explains why much talked-about but little-understood methods of therapy such as laughter yoga actually work and how we can better incorporate humor into our lives. Very few doctors have the ability to heal the way that King does; his method is cheap, easy, and chemical-free. Even fun! This wonderful, transformative, and provocative read shows how and why laughter saves lives.

Forty years later, the only difference is that he has a driver's license and scruff. He's one of the happiest people I know, and he's pretty good at explaining how easy it is to be happy as well. Life is beautiful and funny; embrace it. --Jon King, author's brother Dr. Brian knows what makes people laugh and knows exactly why it's good for them. He doesn't use any of that on stage, but he knows a lot of stuff. --Phil Johnson, comedian Funny. Smart. And extremely good looking. Well, no. But two out of three ain't bad. --Will Durst, comedian Finally! A professional who conveys practical truth with clarity and engaging humor. Do you want to be happy regardless of your circumstances? Get this book! --Jane Norberg, registered nurse Dr. Brian King is the kind of friend whose presence and jubilant outlook can bring a smile, laugh, and lasting memories to anyone. What's his secret? I'm going with his hat. --Erik Escobar, comedian Whether performing stand-up or contributing to the planet's knowledge of Bloody Marys, King is dedicated to making people laugh from coast to coast. Life got you down? Spend an hour with Brian King. --Scotch Wichmann, author of Two Performance Artists Kidnap Their Boss And Do Things With Him
