April is National Humour month in North America #HNNComedy

Family Guy

This month, gravity gives way to levity.

After two occasions for sober-sided hindsight – Black History Month in February and Women’s History Month in March – April can’t help but be a less serious month, commemoratively-speaking.

This is especially true given that April is National Humor Month(humormonth.com).

The brainchild of humourist and motivational speaker Larry Wilde, 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of National Humor Month (we’ll give them the benefit of their funny American spelling of “humour”).

It was a perfect time to start such a holiday. In ’76 Saturday Night Live was still in its first season, Norman Lear (All in the Family, Maude) and Grant Tinker (Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart) ruled TV. Monty Python films were in the theatres, we played Cheech & Chong and Steve Martin albums in our basements.
