Benefits To Attending Comedy Shows

If you have ever attended a comedy show, there’s a probably certainty that you will enjoy yourself and you will laugh.  However, did you know that there are additional benefits to attending a comedy show?

  • Reduces stress – Laughing, especially that holding your gut laugh, reduces stress hormone levels like cortisol and epinephrine.
  • Muscle relaxer – Laughter increases oxygen flow and helps relieve built up muscle tension.
  • Burns calories – Believe it or not, laughing burns calories. Laughing for 10-15 minutes can potentially burn 50 calories.
  • Stimulates the brain – Laughing takes work for your brain. It stimulates multiple areas of your brain and the processes required for laughing actually makes laughing a complex activity.

So, regular attendance of a comedy show can be to your benefit. If you haven’t checked one out recently, I encourage you to. Meanwhile, you can check out some of my show clips.
