I told a joke.


Well, luckily my friend Craig Shoemaker told me to keep at it.

How to get a little better at it.

"Keep going up."

Be as sharp as a Ginsu knife.

How he got better.

How he got more laughs.

I started to focus on writing three jokes a day.

How can I get to the punchline faster?

Cut words with a Ginsu and see if better.


So hard.

So nuanced.

It's more than "laughter is the best medicine."

I believe that laughter heals.
