written by: Gale Dukes RN, Author
HUMOR DOES A BODY GOOD
The Snack Pack performs on the first Monday night of every month at Lenny’s Bar on Decatur Street in downtown Atlanta. There are no rules for this show and no other way to describe it other than “engaging and funny.”
The DJ is crunk and the room is filled with eager patrons ready for a hearty laugh and ready to put the events of today behind them. The comedians took the stage and introduced themselves:
Reemo Rod – Host/Producer
Larry “LT” Towers – Comedian/Actor
Ameer Bryant – Comedian
Tyler Dirton – Comedian/Actor
Big Que – Comedian
Morgan – Comedian/Actor
Crystle – Clear – Director/Producer
Kamal Secret – Producer
The humor was delivered as a variety improv show. There were musical fairytales and talented impersonators of Tyler Perry, Soulja Boy and other local celebrities. They answered questions and addressed problems in a segment called “good, bad and worse advice,” as the audience continued to scream out for advice from bad kids to bad relationships. The audience was included in the show as a few joined the comedians on stage. Dwayne Boyd (actor and producer) was chosen from the audience and won an arm full of snacks for his task on stage. Being true to the name Snack Pack, they gave everyone in the audience a bag of treats. The crowd remained energized as they incorporated current issues in the city and local news stories into their sketch. There is nothing ordinary in the routine delivered. The Snack Pack is being prescribed for those in need of laughter. Studies have shown that laughter has an effect on the body. Dr. William Fry, associate professor of clinical psychiatry at Stanford University, has studied the effects of laughter for over 30 years. Our bodies respond in a positive way to a hearty laugh as stress effects the body negatively. According to Fry, laughter increases the heart rate, improves blood circulation, and works muscles all over the body. Laughter is credited with increasing the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers and protectors against depression. Laughter improves one’s self of well being and that’s why 123,992,777,232 jokes are e-mailed globally daily according to Yahoo and why we have live comedy shows like the Snack Pack to deliver us a good dose of medicine for our mind and body. Finally a “Snack” that’s good for us.
