"…Oh, Dewuan, I love this so much. Thank you so much for sharing your memory. And this question is just epic. Thank you. And the person I loved to make laugh was also the person I got my laugh from. And my dad just and sublimely funny man, but not in a boisterous, crazy way, but in a very deeply sort of the ravine of his soul is just filled with joy and laughter, but you have to mine it a little bit.…"

"…And also, that's very cool. You're able to share your gift of laughters with others for a great cause. And, hey, maybe even once in a while around these parts, you can share a little laugh with us as well.…"

Thank you @DBPardes

"…Hey, Dewuan. You've given me a really good idea, which I'm going to do today, which is start a swell for an audio memorial for people we love, because I feel like I know Jerome so much now because of the way you we've talked about him and in speaking his name and telling the stories about your connection and who he was, it memorializes him in a very powerful way. It's beautiful.…"

"…Whereas I don't know how George Floyd fits into this conversation and how it's now a memorial of people that you've lost. That was not my intention, and I never thought George Floyd would be involved in a conversation about laughter. But I'm laughing. But I think you solidified your stance on seriousness. You literally just said you're more serious on here, and this is exactly what you meant. Is it the direction I would have took? No, I don't think so.…"

Lol, you’re dead serious! @DBPardes

"…I don't feel that's me as a private person, so to speak, but I feel that my daughter, who's seven, might be a good teacher in that regard, so I might come back to that question at some point and reflect a bit upon it and let her sort of teach me a couple of things, because she tries to make me laugh all the time. And I think that's something that a lot of kids do.…"

@FryedOreo Love these questions, they brought up a lot of reflections..

"…But I can think of scenarios where it was just like a random something random to throw into maybe laughter, and it did end up working and the overall ability to do that and see that it's brought some laughter out of folks, maybe in a serious time. I think that I look fondly on that for sure. Thank you once again. This is a really great one.…"

"…But yeah, this had been on my mind for quite some time and I would notice, I would laugh like my friend and I wonder why it was bad. And I guess I thought about it for quite a bit of time and it was those memories I had with him and experiences that kind of translated into my laugh track, as it were. But you have really never found that you've emulated your laugh nor tried to make someone laugh. I wonder, do you make people laugh unintentionally?…"

@singingsense Thank you for adding to this conversation!

"…I got a little taste of it when you were laughing a bit. So that was cool. That was neat. And your father, you've emulated some mannerisms from him, as one should. So that's perfectly well and good. And I thought that was interesting with you mentioning not so much trying to make a person laugh, but trying possibly to find humor in a situation where it could be deemed impossible for most.…"

Thank you @Musing_Matilda

"…But I think there are a lot of really great actually. I can really only speak on like the Ugandan community and I'll say that in the area that I've grown up in. The DMV area. That's like the Ugandan community that I know. And I really do appreciate that it exists. That I've been able to be a part of it in all the different ways that I have been throughout my life so far.…"

"…I'm pretty sure where you are, obviously, if it's a Ugandan populace community where you are, you must be thriving with community. Yeah. Especially in these times. To find something funny in itself can be a treasure hunt. But I also go out of my way to make people laugh, especially on my Instagram. That's kind of my thing. The humor is a bit darker, a bit more rose.…"

Ok i get you @Musing_Matilda

"…I really love your questions because obviously we all have our stories and they're also related to the way we laugh or don't laugh when our laughing freed up and when it maybe was a tiny bit more stock. So, yes, thanks again for the discussion.…"

@FryedOreo Fun fact though: As a performer, I was much more often cast in comedy than in "serious" roles, so there you go :)

"…I often kind of go about it in the same way, in which I don't have a set of jokes that work, but I have stories that I know that people find funny that I share often, to which I guess it is a joke that I have, but it's not like a knock knock, who's there? Sort of things. Nothing you could find on the Internet. It's something that I find through my personal experience.…"

"…What a great question. You know, my first instinct was to say I didn't I don't have my laugh is really just mine. And I'm a very loud laugher and really boisterous because I laugh probably more than anyone I know, and I love that about me. But as I got to thinking about it, I realized that it is something I got from my father, and it's one of the things that holds him close in my heart.…"

"…Cosmic Claudia. Cool name. And thank you so much for not only listening to the conversation, but also adding an audio response. And I'm happy that that you like this particular post and also that it resonates with you deeply. It was not something, honestly, I was expecting, but I'm glad I did not anticipate it. And I also loved that eureka moment. You had realized within yourself that indeed, you can find an inspiration to the way that you laugh.…"

Thank you @CosmicClaudia

"…I owe my dad. My style of laughing out aloud and also my sense of humor both come from him. And the person I find most difficult to get to laugh is my husband. He doesn't crack up easily at all. Quite a challenge. Lovely post there. Thank you for this. Day one. Bye.…"

"…And maybe by some degree, whenever he did laugh, it was amazing because it didn't happen as often, or maybe not. Maybe he just was always kind of goofy. Who knows? Maybe you can say a little more about that. But as far as your husband tough crowd the guy you decide to spend the rest of your life with gets a little funky every now and then and don't want to laugh at your jokes.…"

"…First of all, the wand. What a what an awesome question. But yeah. So in the in the picture, my mom is on the far left. She's the oldest of six of the girls anyway, with all her mental faculties. But I think growing up, my mom first off, my brother and I were mostly raised by a mother, and she did a h*** of a job.…"

"…Johnny, thank you very much for not only taking the time to listen to this Swell, but to also offer an audio response. And it sounds like this question resonated with you in a profound way, as your mother was the one who had a very gregarious laugh and it was contagious. And I believe that is the missing element here, that contagious laugh.…"
