Humor: The Sixth Sense:
A Presentation by David Grouchy
ST. TAMMANY –Did your holiday party jokes fall flat? Were you hoping for a laugh out loud moment, but got a sympathetic smile instead? If so, David Grouchy would like to help. Since 1982, Grouchy has taught individuals to develop their sense of humor. "Recent medical research indicates that a strong sense of humor may be one of our primary defenses against the ravages of stress. According to Paul E. McGhee, PhD, laughter raises endorphin levels and lowers cortisol levels, allowing the body to heal itself."
Mr. Grouchy will be working with funny bones at both the Causeway and Slidell Branches. The Causeway event will take place from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., on Tuesday, January 22, at the Causeway Branch, 3457 Hwy. 190, Mandeville. The Slidell event will take place from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., on Wednesday, January 23, at the Slidell Branch, 555 Robert Blvd, Slidell.
Mr. Grouchy has written an award winning newspaper humor column, taught acting, directing theater production, strategic planning, decision making, public speaking, leadership, and conflict resolution. He has been involved in over 40 plays and has been twice nominated best actor at the Baton Rouge Little Theater. He has two books in print, as well as articles in Inside Northside, Travel Host, Sail Magazine, and other publications.
The event is free and open to the public, and registration is recommended. Seating space is limited to 40 adults. Light refreshments will be provided. Please stop by or call either of the above library branches to register or register online at register.stpl.us/evanced/lib/eventcalendar.asp.
