The Importance Of Humorous Life Lessons And Laughter

By Sarah Price

Whether being told by an individual or comedian, it can often be difficult to discern good jokes from bad or inappropriate ones. As humor is defined as anything which creates a laughter response in others, even bad or inappropriate jokes can be funny to some while offensive to others. When it comes to humorous life lessons, individuals often respond in laughter while also learning to never repeat the same action.

Discrimination has often found a place on stage with comedians, in sit-coms and television shows. While provoking a response in many individuals, this material is often quite offensive to a large percentage of the audience. As such, it is imperative to be cautious when preparing or writing comedic material to avoid anything which would be considered discriminatory.

Whether creating, or laughing at inappropriate material, an individual is often considered to be discriminatory, often without realizing same. As such, it is also important for audience members to step up and let others know when this type situation exists. Whether that means, approaching a comedian at the end of a gig, explaining to others why a joke is offensive, or writing a film or television studio as to why a show created a negative response.

Some individuals have a sense of humor while others do not. As such, a joke may be funny to some and not to others. When telling funny jokes and stories which do not provoke a laughter response, one should never assume the material to be bad or inappropriate. For, it could just be that these individuals did not grasp or understand the material or punchline.

Actions and activities which promote an emotional response can often include young children trying to act like adults, small world stories, telling jokes, or providing information on a specific event. In addition, any experience out of the ordinary can also be funny when explained in the right way. At the same time, it is important to remember that what may be funny to one person might not provoke the same response in another.

Context, intelligence, education, maturity, culture, location, radio, sports and television can all contribute to creating an emotional response such as laughter and joy, or sadness and sorrow. Individuals involved theater productions often understand the difference between comedic, dramatic, horrific and terrific material. Many of these elements, while having the ability to include humor, are often focused on obtaining a more intense emotional response.

Like with other forms of entertainment, it is always good when telling a joke or story that audiences be age appropriate. Otherwise, the joke or story could be retold at school or church without a child understanding the overall impact. Whereas, adults often enjoy more advanced and satirical forms of humor like those performed on stage by comedians or found in a number of television sit-coms.

There are basically two beliefs as to the origins of humor. One being, that it is a Divine gift, and the other being that it is basic human nature. In either case, as it has been proven that laughter can have a healing effect, it is often good to tell a joke, a funny story, go to a funny film, or share personal experiences which have provoked laughter whether in oneself or others.
