What ice cream addiction? Or 'Hey buddy, can you spare a spoon?'

True confession time:

BBLarry300When it comes to entertainment, the only thing I love more than movies in general are movies that make me laugh.  Really laugh!  Films like the Mel Brooks' masterpiece monster mash comedy Young Frankenstein (1974), Dr. Strangelove or:  How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) and the first Toy Story (1995).  Movies like that.

The only thing I love more than movies that make me laugh is making people laugh through my stand-up comedy routine We Might As Well Laugh.

That's why I want to say thanks to Pam and all the fine folks over at The Oaks (Hawthorn Retirement Group) in Georgetown (Texas)!

I'm looking forward to bringing We Might As Well Laugh to Central Texas on Aug. 16. 

I learned a long time ago -- oh about 20 or 30 minutes or so -- that there are some things in life we just can't control, like aging, tiny type on medicine bottles and my horrific addiction to ice cream, for instance.

How bad is that ice cream addiction, you ask?  For me, it's the other Cold War, something so dangerous that it has tempted me to at least consider -- for a crazed, fleeting moment and more than once -- hijacking a Blue Bell ice cream truck.  Not dangerous enough for you?  OK, we'll also examine the time ice cream tried to kill me.

It didn't; at least not yet.  And neither has aging or that pesky tiny type on medicine bottles.

If we can't control things like that, we might as well laugh about them. 

That's exactly what we do during my stand-up comedy routines.  If you think your corporate meeting, group, club or retirement community would like to discover that laughter really is a great medicine, simply click this link to to check availability and other info for your very own We Might As Well Laugh presentation.

If I don't get back to you right away it will likely be because I'm sneaking a quick pint (OK, quart) of Blue Bell or watching something like this:
