Aging IS a laughing matter!
I am a huge fan of comedy, especially the work of stand up comedians. It’s raw, exposed storytelling at its finest. Unfortunately, most stand up routines probably do more to feed the traditional stigmas of aging, but as they say . . . thats entertainment!
One of the benefits of becoming an elder is that you have lived long enough to tell a few stories. So I was delighted to learn about a retirement community that was integrating stand up comedy and improv into their activities. What better way to share stories with others by using techniques to better communicate and make your audience laugh and smile.
