Why do we laugh, what makes us laugh and what happens to the body when we do laugh? In this dissection of laughter from everyday life, The Art of Laughter is a unique soliloquy presented by Jos Houben. Alone on stage, Houben presents a philosophical treatise and an anthropological study on the construct of laughter. This show illuminates the ideology of laughter, exploring dynamics, causes and effects of this natural human instinct. This is a show of introduction and education, demonstrating the format of a seminar or masterclass. Within this production, Houben introduces you to conventions, comedy and bodily functions, associated with laughter, and believe me you wont stop laughing!
