Editorial Reviews

Laughter Yoga, Laughter Parties, Laughercize and other laughter oriented health trends have spawned a new approach to laughter. It involves using laughter to make people laugh instead of jokes. Simple laughter according to Laughology, may be helpful in reducing heart disease, fighting stress and increasing immunity. Laughology features “The Laughman,” Doug Collins, a Memphis resident who is said to have the most contagious laugh in the world.

Laughology
1 Disc Widescreen edition, released September 7, 2010

"Laughology" is the first ever feature documentary about the subject of laughing, written and directed by Albert Nerenberg. One man's loss of laughter after a string of bad events motivated his journey to find out more about laughter, why we laugh, what it does for us, how contagious it is, and hopefully how to get his own laugh back.

Laughing is a human action that occurs without learning. Babies do it without example, even deaf and blind babies can do it. We inherently have the need to laugh within us.

"The man with the most contagious laugh in the world" is a real hoot! Doug Collins has a silly, distinctive laugh that is so ridiculous, it once kept an audience in stitches for twenty minutes straight. His youtube video of laughter has been replayed over and over again by countless listeners on youtube who are in need of cheering up.

Norman Cousins engaged in laughing to save his life. He was painfully ill and found that ten minutes of good belly-aching laughter could result in half an hour of pain-free sleep. He watched tons of old episodes of Candid Camera to generate his laughter and much later found himself cured much to the surprise of all.

Laughter clubs have broken out everywhere including laughing yoga for exercise. There was a laughing disease epidemic in Tanzania in 1962 where thousands of people laughed for eighteen months, tested came back with nothing abnormal detected. Africa isn't the only place with laughter epidemics. A South African minister has brought holy laughter to Massachusetts resulting in falling down, rolling laughter.

The conclusion being reached was that just faking laughter can result in true laughter!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exceptionally Great Film about Laughter February 15, 2012
Format:DVD
As a laughter yoga professional, I was aware of the buzz surrounding the release of Laughology. Everyone was excited to have a full length documentary about laughter. When I finally saw it myself, I was delighted to realize that it's more than just a film about laughter--it's an exceptionally great film about laughter!

Albert Nerenberg frames the journey of this film with his own story. Like so many others, he had "lost his laugh" by becoming a serious adult leading a stressful life. In a desperate attempt to rediscover his inner joy, he explores the many ways in which laughter is therapeutic. Along the way, he highlights important figures in this field including Dr. Robert Provine, Norman Cousins, Dr. Madan Kataria, and Doug Collins--the man with the world's most contagious laugh. Nerenberg travels to a number places around the globe and even goes to Africa to investigate the laughter epidemic that happened in Tanzania in the 1960s. This is a particularly fascinating piece.

Laughology is intelligent, informative, entertaining and hilarious. Interspersed throughout the film are great clips of people laughing contagiously, which makes it such fun to watch. Nerenberg plays the straight man so well by not laughing in the presence of laughing people. This, too, is funny. My laughter club members were falling out of their chairs watching it. I highly recommend this film. I'll be showing it at all my laughter yoga seminars from now on. To bring more laughter into your own life through a daily practice, check out Be Laughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughology (DVD) December 27, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is proof of the infectiousness of laughter and the many reasons it's so good for us. It's impossible to watch and not laugh out loud, all through it.
