Come on, hit the Laugh Button! You know you want to!

Hey all…

This morning I got an e-mail from the blog of Tim Ferris (author of the 4-Hour Workweek) pointing me to a new site he’s helping a friend with called The Laugh Button. (Though I’d love to do more with the 4-hour workweek concept, it hasn’t happened for me quite yet — I’m working on it. 🙂 )

The post talks about tonight’s special on PBS honoring George Carlin at the Mark Twain Prize presentation, and how some of Carlin’s quotes are almost indistinguishable from Mark Twain’s… Separated at birth and a 100+ years? Maybe! (Here’s the post from Ferris — it’s worth reading. All of Ferris’ posts are thought provoking, and that’s great first thing in the morning to get the juices flowing.)

Anyway… I digress! The really cool bit is that this site, The Laugh Button, is kind of like a Pandora for stand-up comedians. We all need more funny in our lives. This is a perfect way to introduce a smile into your day. I will be checking out this site regularly!

So check out The Laugh Button today and watch the Mark Twain Prize tonight on PBS to honor one of the great comedians of our time – George Carlin – with some of the other great comedians of our time (Jon Stewart, Garry Shandling, Margaret Cho, Denis Leary, and one of our favorite crazy people – Lewis Black).

You know you want to listen. 🙂

  1. I don’t understand thelaughbutton. It is not setup in a user friendly way and why would I limit myself to there comedians. I can just go to CollegeHumor or youtube for searches. Doesn’t make sense to me.

  2. I think it’s more of a collection of clips from famous comedians than the more general funny sites.
