Comedy Corner #6

chubby20n-1-webWow.  We’re long overdue for a Comedy Corner.  As I prepare for a convention I’m speaking at this week, I am reminded that stress is everywhere.  Indeed, being stressed out is easy.  Laughing is hard sometimes because we have to take a moment to laugh.  We have to be intentional about it.  Laughing releases endorphins, “the feel good hormones,” which are essential to managing stress and great for fighting depression.  On that note, take a moment to laugh this week and enjoy these funny moments:

1.  Korean Babies Dancing

Have you seen these adorable toddlers?  I must have watched this seven times when I first saw it.

2.  Arsenio and Ray Romano Trade Places

So I was really devastated when I found out that The Arsenio Hall Show was cancelled.  I love that man and wish the networks gave his show a greater chance.  This is a clip from an episode a few months ago where Arsenio and Ray perform each others’ standup pieces.  Farewell, Arsenio and the Posse 2.0.

3.  “What’s My Line?” –Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz (October 2, 1955)

Lucille Ball is one of my all-time favorite comediennes.  I just love I Love Lucy.  I just think these two are so hilarious together.

–Your Stylist, Jessica Gimeno
