Hello My Laughing Friends,

Laughing Laura here. I bet you're wondering why I haven't posted a blog in so long. Well, I've moved to a home in the woods internet! ha ha ha! It's been wonderful to get in touch with nature and take a break from regular internet use. Nevertheless, I'm still laughing, I'm still contact-able and I've got some EXCITING things to share with you!

I just returned from the Laughter Conference in Los Angeles, California. Below are some pics, which help tell the story of the amazing adventure it was.

I traveled from Chicago with the Amazing Terri Reasoner

Here's a group picture on the last day of the conference

The Master Trainers: Linda Tourloukis, Laughing Laura, Sebastien Gendry, Linda LeClerc, and Merv Neal

I got to MC the Laughter Winners Competition! This was a non-competitive competition in which everyone WON a special title for their unique contribution to the night's humor.

One of the talented competitors is a naturalist who told about the Turkey Vulture (I got to be her example)

Each winner was photographed with the panel of judges and their award. Here is Santa and Mrs. Claus winning their award.

One of the acts had people do yoga poses and laugh!

I even got an award for my accessories!

It was a marvelous time, as you can tell. Visit to see more pictures and learn about next year's event to be held in Portland.

It inspired me to publish the dates I've already booked for the 2015 Laugh-Fest of the Midwest and to open registration for it! Click here to learn more. It's going to be the most fun you can have in a weekend. Start planning now.
