Laughter As the Best Medicine

Laughter really has a healing quality for me, and so I keep track of the things that make me laugh. I have document after document on my computer of my favorite funny quotes from movies, friends, TV, and books, and whenever I need to, I just read through those.

I also keep my favorite funny videos in playlists on YouTube. So far I have over 500 videos saved among my various "LOL!" playlists, and even though I have seen most of them multiple times, they still make me laugh. What is included in these playlists?

Well... these kinds of things.

People Doing Strange Things

An Abundance of Monty Python Sketches

An Abundance of Whose Line Is It Anyway Sketches (I used to have more but they kept getting removed from YouTube)

An Abundance of A Bit of Fry and Laurie Sketches

Mash-Ups, Edits, and Re-Cuts

Music-Based Stuff

Japanese Ads, Which Are the Strangest Things Ever

Those Clips Where Weird Al Pretends To Interview Someone

Musical Madlibs

Way More Cute Kid Videos Than I Thought

Julian Smith

Things Going Wrong

Bad Lip Reading

The New State Plates series by Andrew Huang and Andrew Gunnarolla

A Bunch of Random Other Ones That Didn't Fit Any of Those Categories

Those are the highlights of my funny videos playlists. Still not all of them, as there are definitely a few that are probably only funny to me, so I've left those out. But this is the majority of the ones I've shown or wanted to show to other people. Hopefully at least some of these can cheer you up. I know they make me happy. Rewatching so many of them as I typed up this blog definitely brought a smile to my face.

(If you'd rather just watch all 28 hours, 52 minutes and 16 seconds of things I find hilarious in a row, here are the links to the playlists themselves, not organized in any way: Volume 1, Volume 2, and Volume 3.)


  1. Thanks for this! I've been going down the list in between studying for my college finals... It makes for some hilarious study breaks!

    1. Can't even tell you how many times I used these playlists during my college study breaks. :) Always good for a laugh to break my tension!
