The funny bone: What tickles it & why?

We love our 20th Anniversary Season lineup, but we're especially excited for Cocktails with Larry Miller on Friday, December 16. Larry Miller is one funny guy. He stole our hearts in Pretty Woman, made us {guilt-ily} giggle in Princess Diaries, and brought on the laughs as the doorman on Seinfeld. Miller has also made appearances in many of Christopher Guest's mockumentaries, like Best in Show and Waiting for Guffman.

Each of those performances were all very different, yet equally funny, which got us thinking - what makes us laugh and why? Is it a learned response or something engrained in our cognitive thinking? This article in The Boston Globe helped explain humor a little better for us. Take a minute to read over it and let us know what you think. It's a pretty interesting perspective.

The show is only a couple of weeks away, but there are still tickets available here. We know there will be plenty to laugh about during Larry Miller's discussion on Marriage, Children & each one leads to the other two. Head over to Larry's blog and get prepared to laugh 'til you cry.

See you at the show, drink in hand, maybe in both. You wouldn't want to miss a minute of this performance!
