"There is nothing like a gleam of humor to reassure you that a fellow human being is ticking inside a strange face." - Eva Hoffman




Funny movies and television shows give comfort, relief and joy to patients of all ages through our Prescribed! Programs This project is an outgrowth of our lab research with the UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center which indicated that watching funny shows can help with pain and stress during a medical procedure. Add your favorites. It's free, fun and easy and brings laughter to those who need it most. See https:/www.facebook.com/RxLPrescribedViewing

Targeted Streaming Content:
Rx Laughter has expanded our use of funny and uplifting digital entertainment to include streaming content for hospitalized children and adults. We screen a basic library and "prescribe" this fun and age appropriate wholesome entertainment to help you select from what is an overwhelming array of choices. Many of the classic shows are free. Patients in pain and under stress do not have the energy to do this. We help. We contact nurses, physicians and Administrators at hospitals in the US to offer this free service to their pediatric patients and families in isolation, infusions and critical care units.

The Founder of Rx Laughter oversees this project. Ms Hilber is a former primetime network executive overseeing television content and was the Director of Creative Affairs at Walt Disney Television Animation.


Targeted "RxLaughterPrescribed4Kids" and "RxLaughterPrescribed4Adults" on Facebook:
These are separate lists of shows selected by us for more joy and comfort for children and adults. Check it out at https://www.facebook.com/Rx-Laughter-Prescribed4Kids and Prescribed4Adults. Please note that due to the volume of selections, we do not have the resources to view each of these movies and television shows. We do attempt to use wholesome G and PG ratings for our selections.
