How do you find out why we laugh? With tickling, of course! Gorillas and other great apes appear to love being tickled, and sound like they're laughing just like us. Animal biologist Marina Davila-Ross thought tickling might connect humans and great apes - and hold the clues to the origin of laughter. To find out, she assembled teams of ticklers in an experiment full of giggles. It's the silliest science you've ever heard, but the discoveries will blow your mind. Learn more about laughter in animals and humans in our interview with Marina Davila-Ross.

095: Comedian Kathy Klotz-Guest Talks About Achieving Your Life's Purpose Through Laughter and Embracing Your Humanity

An Interview with Melissa Llarena

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 12, 2021 49:32


Why is a sense of humor and humanity so important that you should bring both to work and keep them in your life? In fact, a sense of playfulness can be your superpower. It certainly was for this week's guest: Kathy Klotz-Guest.  In today's episode, Kathy shares her story as a woman in technology who excelled in Silicon Valley by being funny and smart. We delved into the #1 fear most of us share: the fear of judgment especially by others (particularly from our coworkers). Kathy also shares how you can avoid living a fragmented life at work and instead bring more of your personality to the table as an asset. We talk about what you may need to feel psychologically safe enough to let your guard down a bit and show your humanity.  Kathy shares where the magic is as well as other lessons she has learned from her ‘improv' experiences, including a concept called the “yes, and.” Hopefully, after listening to this episode, you'll be inspired to add more humor and a spirit of playfulness into your life.  I also want to invite you to grab your free copy of my Courage Makerspace Playbook. In this playbook, you'll have an opportunity to grow and test your own courage muscles. See where they are today and where they can use some strengthening so that you can get more out of your life. Pick any one of my 7 specific exercises centered on boosting your courage so you get to a point where you rise up and you and you can finally be your real, authentic, and playful self. You see, approaching your life purpose or going after your dreams is a lot easier if you are intentionally playful along the way; and in my playbook, I give you my process.  Simply go to www.melissallarena.com/courage. Once you receive your playbook, turn to page 29 for an exercise that will help you intentionally add playful experiences into your life. You will also notice how intentionally planning for playful experiences each month will get you to a space where you'll be making your responsibilities work around those playful and memorable experiences and not the other way around. Grab your Courage Makerspace right now if you want to rather approach your life purpose and mission laughing, than being burnt out.  About Kathy Klotz-Guest Kathy Klotz-Guest is a speaker, author, comedian, and former tech exec who uses tools of improvisation and humor to help leaders, teams - even companies - be more human and communicate like humans. By helping people bring more of their humorous selves to work, we can lead positive change and create safe spaces for bold, "unsafe" ideas that matter. The founder of Keeping it Human, Kathy trained at ComedySportz and at LA's Second City, and she and her work have been featured in Forbes and The Huffington Post.  Inc.com named her book, “Stop Boring Me!” a must-read for leaders. It was one of the top 10 humor and communication books on Amazon in 2018.  Kathy has graduate degrees from Stanford University and UC Berkeley, and performs stand-up comedy and improv as well as teaches it in theater and business settings. Her 12 yr old still thinks she's funny, though she knows that the window is closing very soon. She is working on her 3rd book and just launched an improv and business course on LinkedIn Learning called 'Leading in the Moment.' Share this episode with a people leader whom you know is secretly a funny person who might just need a nudge to share their gift with others! Encourage them to use their superpower by sharing this conversation with them.  Highlights Curiosity: Consider the idea of saying “yes, and” in your life so that you can follow your hunches and stay the course with whatever might be necessary for you to do during your day-job Creativity: Create or find your own safe space. Watch how creative you can be when you feel psychologically safe. Courage: Honor yourself and your ideas and show up for others. It's time to stop living a fragmented life and start becoming more of yourself. Embrace who you are and that's where the magic is! Leadership: Leaders worth following have a sense of humor and humility. If you take yourself so seriously, you can't laugh at your mistakes and embrace your own humanity.  Humanity: We all have inside of us this capacity for lightheartedness and joy. If we don't want that as part of who we are, then we're not connecting with all of who we are. Fear: The number one fear is people are afraid of being judged by their co-workers, we're afraid of judgment. Perspective: Be honest about the reality that some people will not like who you are. Show up more and the world around you will start to change. Authenticity: If you can be more you during the hiring process, the right employer, the right culture, the right team, and their propensity to accept the real you will reveal itself. Humor: People feel more comfortable with humor when it's organic and when there's psychological safety. Culture: When the people in an organization aren't laughing, it could mean that fear is high and psychological safety is low. And so, look at the net you put under people. Self-aware leaders who are progressive are open to the challenge, and psychological safety starts with them. Adapt: We were born improvisers. Every day, everybody in life and in business has to adapt. They have to pivot and the greatest pivot involves COVID. Playfulness: Play is not the opposite of serious. It's the opposite of depression. Reclaim playfulness starting with doing the little things and whatever works for you. Whatever feeds your soul is valid play. There's no one way to play. Play in the workplace: There's no wrong way to do it. Play a little bit in every meeting. Meetings don't have to be boring!  Safety: As leaders, make it a safe place for people to speak of how they feel, and that kind of safety opens people up. Play is both a top-down and bottoms-up approach. It doesn't excuse leaders from doing their share to create psychological safety.  Joy space: Make sure you do something that brings you joy every day. Whether that's teaching or listening to music, whatever that looks like, create these places where you find joy and feel safe. Self-talk: We all have the universal fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, fear of being wrong, and the fear of being judged. And you've got to rewire the self-talk. The inner critic: Whenever you're criticizing somebody else's creation, you are feeding your inner critic such that when you go to do something creative, it will turn on you because you fed it with other people. So practice grace with other people.

Backseat Bible Nuggets

Do you think God laughs? Someone asked me this yesterday and it made me think…what do you think? Do YOU think that God laughs? Do you think that Jesus laughed when He lived on Earth? I do! I think that God laughs a LOT actually and I bet Jesus laughed a ton as He lived His life. How could He not?! There's too many funny things in life to NOT laugh! And think of how much you love to laugh. Everyone loves a good laugh. It just makes you feel good! And sometimes we say laughing is contagious, meaning that we can just hear someone else laughing and then we start laughing too. I think God loves to laugh just like we love to laugh.When God was creating Adam and Eve, the Bible tells us that God created them in His own image. That means God looked at Himself and made humans very similar to Himself. And as good as it feels to laugh, I think God loves to laugh too.Is it kinda strange to think about God doing someone as simple and fun as laughing?This isn't always how we think about God. Some people think God is a mean dictator that sits on His throne telling people what to do and not do. Most people don't think of God as laughing right along with us when we laugh. But I think it's important for us to know that while God is indeed a king who has laid out the best way for us to live in the Bible, He's also our best friend who wants to be right there in the middle of the good laugh.Psalms 126:2 says “Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then is was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them." Here are some questions to talk about. You can pause after each question and discuss or just generally review together when it's over. Oh, and this is important! There's no wrong answer to these! The point is to get conversation flowing. So don't overthink it!1.     If God laughs, what does He laugh about?2.     How do you usually think of God? Is He like that mean guy telling everyone what to do OR is He the loving, laughing best friend?One last time, let's practice our verse together. You can repeat after me. “Our mouths were filled with laughter, - our tongues with songs of joy. - Then is was said among the nations, - “The Lord has done great things for them.” Psalms 126:2

Main talking points include:The power of laughter - how it energizes you as personWhat laughter yoga is and why you should consider it for yourselfPete's story and background in business (it's no joke!) A bit about PeteOne afternoon, at a summer festival with his family, Pete heard the joyous sound of laughter ringing out from the arboretum. Assuming they were missing the funniest comedian in the world, Pete instead stumbled on his first Laughter Yoga event. And it was at this point that Pete Cann ‘Business Man' became the man we have today, Pete Cann ‘The Laughter Man'.From that first session, surrounded by people laughing unconditionally and without boundaries, Pete realised the joy that laughter could bring to a group of people. Returning from the festival, Pete began to investigate Laughter Yoga. The more he discovered, the more the idea of laughter as a health and wellness activity resonated with him.Pretty soon Pete was attending as many Laughter Yoga sessions as he could find. The problem was, there were not too many of them. So Pete Cann ‘Laughter Man' was born and he made it his mission to bring the benefits of laughter to as many people as he could.In the same way he built his first business, Pete has used all of his innovative thinking to make himself a name in the Laughter Yoga world. Via the new phenomena of video calls, Pete Cann the Laughter Man has performed Laughter Yoga to rooms of people around the world. As his name gets bigger so do the rooms and so do the numbers of people attending.Pete has made it his mission in life to bring the health, happiness and wealth benefits of laughter to the whole wide world.

Crazy right. I know how important the quality of water is that we put into our bodies. We know that most water that comes out of our faucet these days is filled w/ toxins. Rarely can we trust that bottled water is what it claims to be, not to mention all of that plastic waste. So I decided to switch my water to Kangen, where I can treat my body to ionized, antioxidant rich, alkaline water everyday.

"Good Grief" said the wise Charlie Brown.  Let's consider for 7 minutes what can be good about GRIEF, MOURNING and WEEPING.  Jesus agrees with Charlie.  Blessed are those who weep and mourn.There is plenty in the here and now to grieve over.First, there is stuff "out there": fallen world, leaders, churches, etc.But then more up close and personal, there is stuff "in here": health, aging, frailty, decay, and the big category of SIN: lust, anger, tongue, appetites, etc.the Bible says that going to a FUNERAL is potentially better than going to a WEDDING, IF IF IF IF IF one "takes it to heart."  That is what our precious beatitude is asking of us today.  Let's think about this.  Let's appropriately grieve over what is grievous around us and in us.But, don't stop there.  The beatitude promises COMFORT and even LAUGHTER.  How?  It seems even crazy, unless one opens the time-frame to the very end.  Literally on the last page of the Bible there is the answer:  There is coming a day when mourning, grief, death, and the tears that go along with it will be no more. Ever. Gone.  Replaced by comfort and giggling.  The day of MOURNING gives way to the day of NO MORE.  I can't wait.  I want you to be there with me! In the meantime, see you here tomorrow by subscription on Spotify or Apple Podcasts or any other podcast distributor.

When Jimmy Carr was 25 years old, his life looked very different. He was a marketing exec at an oil company, a practicing Catholic, a virgin. And he was sad. In order to change that. He asked himself one question: "What do I want?" He soon discovered that knowing the answer to that question was half the battle. In this conversation, you'll hear exactly how Jimmy Carr turned a quarter-life crisis into an astonishingly successful career in comedy – and why he'd recommend a similar degree of upheaval to anyone stuck in a rut.You can purchase Jimmy Carr's new book, Before & Laughter, here: https://www.quercusbooks.co.uk/titles/jimmy-carr/before-laughter/9781529413076/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ahead of the Soho Theatre run of her standup show, Accidental Coconut, she chats to Mickey about mining humour from hardship, her incredible grandmother and her new Radio 4 series Njambi McGrath: Becoming Njambi. In Jenny Off The Blocks, Jen's on the Zoom with boxer, model and activist Ramla Ali, who's recently added ‘author' to her arsenal, with new book, Not Without A Fight.Plus, Hannah's bristling with righteous anger as she quite rightly gives The Lancet what for in Bush Telegraph.
