National Humor Month

I spent April Fool’s Day falling for and dishing out prank after prank, including getting my brother to eat a raw potato (disguised as an apple), finding a fake parking ticket on my windshield, and turning on the kitchen faucet only to get sprayed in the face. But, luckily, we can participate in shenanigans all month long, because April is National Humor Month! 

It was founded in 1976 by best-selling humorist Larry Wilde, Director of The Carmel Institute of Humor. According to, it is designed to heighten public awareness on how the joy and therapeutic value of laughter can improve health, boost morale, increase communication skills and enrich the quality of one’s life.

“Since April is often bleak and grim and taxes are due on the 15th, it can be one of the most stressful times of the year,” says Wilde on  

Here are some videos of lovely comediennes to celebrate:
