“Life, when it is looked at up close, is a tragedy; but from afar it’s a comedy.”
There is no greater way to introduce serious subjects than humor. This is why nearly every commercial on television from selling insurance to children’s hospital utilizes humor to introduce their very serious topics. That is the premise behind Laugh Don’t Shoot.
We understand that shootings are extremely traumatic. However, we want to use humor to first, help people learn how not to take themselves so seriously and second, consider the consequences of their actions and alternatives for prevention. We want to use comedy to help break down barriers that cause anger and rage and enable individuals to take a step back and think before they act.
Laugh Don’t Shoot Comedy Shows bring together comedians to tackle some of the most serious topics.
