Laughter, they say is the food for the soul, and for the past 28 editions, Charterhouse has given patrons a reason to destress and end the year with “thousand laughs” festivals.
Night of 1000 Laughs & Music Comedy Festival has created a comedy movement and we are still waxing strong. It has no doubt been a long journey, opening opportunities for comedians who would have otherwise found it difficult to breakthrough in the industry.
On this year’s edition, dubbed ‘Night of 1029 Laughs & Music’ slated for 26th December at Grand Arena (AICC); Christmas comes a month early for upcoming comedians as Charterhouse offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a brilliant amateur mount the biggest comedy stage in Ghana.
So, you think you’re funny? Isa sense of humor one of your core strengths?
There’s just one problem: Other people must also think you’re funny.
This is indeed a hurdle, because humor is a two-sided exchange. It’s a feedback loop between you (the joke teller) and your listener (the audience). Humor doesn’t happen in a vacuum.
It’s not enough to only consider how you see yourself. You must also consider how the world sees you.
