Why God gave humor, how it communicates http://internetevangelismday.com/blog/archives/2320 2010-08-12T04:47:45-05:00 I blame Bob Monkhouse. I trace my huge enjoyment of comedy, and attempts to make others laugh, largely back to his Mad Mad Movies TV programme. All he really did was show clips of old slapstick – Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, The Keystone Cops and the rest. And I was hooked at the age of about seven or eight. But I never thought I’d be organising and running a comedy club – let alone launching our town’s first ever Comedy Festival.
