Joe Hoare – We don’t laugh because we’re happy. We’re happy because we laugh.


Ever laughed so hard you’ve pulled a muscle in your back? Used to happen to me quite often*. My mistake was not taking laughter seriously and practising. If laughter was an Olympic discipline, Joe Hoare would be busy between now and 2012 as he’s a coach who knows all about it.

Joe came to Spike Island to get our audience to feel for themselves how practising laughter can release something just like the real thing.

* The injuries cleared up when I stopped watching You’ve Been Framed.
