Comedian Heroes

Comedians live to make us laugh, change our perspective, and enjoy life.

We know that, according to the science of laughter, just watching someone laugh can make us laugh. Or that by deliberately laughing, we can start laughing for real!

MY HERO celebrates comedy heroes--who not only make us see the lighter side of life, but also make us healthier by living to make us laugh.
