Great for breaking the ice and entertaining people

Laugh Tactics is wonderful because it calls out comedy and being funny for what it is, which is just patterns, structures, and a different way of thinking about things.
The author gives some great examples, but the best is simply, if someone asks you how the weather is, you can choose to answer literally, or you can choose to answer in a variety of other ways… because people don’t really care about that answer. It’s just information they can look up, but this is a chance to engage and make people laugh that we are all not paying attention to! So many times this happens in daily work and life that we don’t notice it…
But that’s what Laugh Tactics is a great introduction for. It shows you those small ways you can be funnier, day by day, and not in a cheesy way. I don’t want to be “that guy” when trying to be funny, so this is a great guide.
