Boost Your Immune System With Laughter

I

by Chris Narloch

don’t ordinarily watch a lot of YouTube, but lately our planet’s pandemic has made me turn to internet videos that make me laugh and provide me with short bursts of temporary pleasure amidst all the chaos.

Lesbian funny lady Fortune Feimster

Being safe and sane is essential during trying times like these, but studies show that laughter has measurable stress-reducing power as well – it can lower your blood pressure and help to calm the mind and body. My favorite recent rediscovery on YouTube is a classic SNL skit featuring the great Cheri Oteri as Nadeen, a no-nonsense ER admissions nurse who invites trauma patients to take a seat and “simmer down.” Oteri’s character is so hilariously rude that she makes me double over in hysterics. I invite you to take a break from all the craziness around us and “simmer down” for a few minutes with her funny video: https:// www.youtube.com/ watch?v=du1Uz8HAlJo&list=RDQWxE07gnEo&start_radio=1

CURRENT AND 9 YEAR WINNER OF THE SACRAMENTO A-LIST

Since many of us are hunkering down at home these days, Netflix viewership is through the roof, and I found another terrific funny-woman to (briefly) get our minds off the challenging times we are living through. If you have Netflix, you really need to watch “Sweet & Salty,” an excellent one-hour comedy special starring Fortune Feimster, a great standup comic whose tales of growing up gay in North Carolina are uproarious. In “Sweet & Salty,” Feimster riffs on her southern roots, her showbiz career, and much more including hilarious tales of her family’s trips to Hooters when she was younger. If you want to boost your immune system, my advice is to laugh a little, love a lot, and ––if you can––try to “simmer down.”
