“MH told me she absolutely LOVED the show. She even asked me if she could come back next month just to see the show, even if she isn’t inpatient! Thank you so much for coming to see us every month! The kids really enjoy it and it is so good to see them laugh uncontrollably like that!!
– Claire Keller, B.S., CCLS, Tulane Hospital for Children
Funny Bones Improv’s mission is to share the gifts and benefits of laughter with sick children, their families, and their caregivers through volunteer comedy improvisation performances in multiple hospitals across New Orleans and Chicago.
Funny Bones Improv offers laughter therapy programs, including customized interactive improvised performances as well as Laughter Yoga sessions. Our programs have proven to positively impact any hospital’s child life services programs, as well as the patient’s and family’s personal experience. As advocates for laughter, we have seen firsthand the positive and healthful – both short term and long term – effects of laughter and believe that it is our responsibility to continue to share it in hospitals across the country.
