Kamau Bell (HBO, FX), Eugene Mirman (Flight of the Conchords), and Bill Santiago (Huffington Post, CNN, Comedy Central), she’s been knocking audiences out (not literally) at clubs like The Improv and Gotham Comedy Club, in San Francisco, New York, Hollywood, Bombay, Chennai, and London.

    After a dozen years of doing standup comedy, she’s been racking up awards for her humorous, insightful one-woman shows.The SF Guardian called her “Goofy, messy, and fun!” The LA Theater Review says she’s “Charming, likable, and funny!” Sold-out hit shows and extended runs have garnered her a number of awards.  Her solo shows include, The Oy of Sex, Eat, Pray, Laugh!, The Punchline, and The Latest Show on Earth Circus. She’s also creator of The Spiritual Comedy Festival, and written a humorous number-one best-selling book on Amazon.

    Humor and the House of Kerouac with author and columnist Erik Deckers

    in Writing

    What do you get if you cross a syndicated newspaper columnist with a business book author on a Pearson imprint with an entrepreneur who owns Pro Blog Service and novelist who's the Spring 2016 writer-in-residence at the Jack Kerouac House in Orlando, Florida?

    Erik Deckers, this week’s guest of Behind the Prose.

    I interviewed Erik in August, just before he relocated to Florida. (Ironically, he was already planning a move there just before learning that he won the coveted residency).

    By now, I’m sure he’s settled in and enjoying the “vibrant literary community” of Orlando that he talks about in this episode.

    But before we get to the Kerouac Project, we go through his decades long career as a humor columnist and his book deals on Que Publishing.

    In this interview you’ll also learn:

    The rhetorical move he started using in his humor and now can’t stop
    How travel writing led him to making an activist move that sent one of his posts viral and cost him a job
    His trick to churning out content on a weekly basis

    There’s also some discussion of Pluto. And if you listened to Sean Ennis’ episode, you might find this kinda spooky. Well, it is Halloween week. Or maybe I’m just subconsciously drawing this Pluto stuff to me. (Remember the Reading-Updike-Keillor thing?)

    Either way, like Erik’s buddy Karl the Curmudgeon, I’m still kinda mad about Pluto too. Get show links at behindtheprose.com.

    Morning Moments With Maia; Carla Ulbrich on Reclaiming Your Power Through Humor

    in Health

    Maia Aziz P.S.W., C.L.Y.L., writes and speaks on living a life of love and laughter. President-Elect of The Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor, Maia is joined each week on Morning Moments With Maia...Conversations of Love and Laughter by an eclectic lineup of guests who live their lives with love and laughter and work to help others do the same.


    Carla Ulbrich is an award-winning comical singer-songwriter and guitarist who in 2002, while on tour, fell very ill with kidney failure and a stroke. As part of her recovery, she wrote a bunch of humorous medical songs lampooning her frustrating experience with the US health care system, resulting in the CD "Sick Humor”, one of 6 CDs she has released.

    Her songs, keynotes, and book entitled "How Can You NOT Laugh at a Time Like This?" which was awarded the Lupus Foundation of America's Seal of Approval, are all based on her humorous take of the life of a patient with several chronic and sometimes catastrophic illnesses. She now performs and speaks at conventions and other gatherings of patients, caregivers, nurses, and other medical professionals.

    She has been featured on AOL News, Sirius XM radio, Dr. Demento and ABC and describes how she learned the value of work/ life balance, joy, and self-care the hard way- by having none of those, and getting incredibly sick. And then finding them again in the journey to reclaiming her health.

    Cancer and Laughter - Humor Therapy

    in Education


    Why laugh at Cancer?  Join Dr. Sharon Johnson in the fight against Cancer with laughter.  Laughter is the best medicine.  What is Humor Therapy? 

    Description:  Humor therapy is the use of humor for the relief of physical or emotional pain and stress. It is used as a complementary method to promote health and cope with illness.

    Overview:  Although available scientific evidence does not support claims that laughter can cure cancer or any other disease (to admit humor's curative powers would cost them big $$$, therefore, no dice), it can reduce stress and enhance a person's quality of life. Humor has physical effects because it can stimulate the circulatory system, immune system, and other systems in the body.

    How is it promoted for use?  Humor therapy is generally used to improve quality of life, provide some pain relief, encourage relaxation, and reduce stress. Researchers have described different types of humor. Passive humor results from seeing prepared material, such as a funny movie, standup comedy, or an amusing book. Spontaneous or unplanned humor involves finding humor in everyday situations (umm, you mean like having a sense of humor.)
