An introduction to Rx Laughter.

Thank you for visiting Rx Laughter. Founded in 1998 by long time network programmer, Sherry Dunay Hilber (bio), Rx Laughter is a 501c3 nonprofit. We create projects that focus on the importance of entertainment, especially humor and comedy, as a coping resource for improved physical and mental health. We began as a research project, partnering with the UCLA Semel Neuropsychiatric Institute, to examine the relationship between comedy viewing and physical health during recovery for children undergoing medical care within hospital settings.

Over the past few years, we expanded our focus to using storytelling from comedy television and films to help people improve coping with their many life challenges such as addiction, depression, anger management, interpersonal conflicts at work, at home, with family and friends. We emphasize how comedic storytelling, through television and films, can bring greater insights, leading to greater self awareness and improved well being.

Our pages on this site reflect our early work regarding the connections between comedy and improved physical health. Our more recent work describes our projects between comedy and improved mental health.

Please visit the pages here to learn more about our projects, our supporters and our goals by clicking on the photos below and our Wellness Projects category above.

Thank you again for joining us in our mission to use comedy, particularly television snd film storytelling, into mental health
