#MotivationMonday: The Need for Laughter

According to a Guardians of the Galaxy character quiz by Magiquiz.com, 34% of quiz takers scored Drax. Despite being a beloved character, he is sometimes criticized for taking life too seriously (which might have something to do with a tragic backstory, but also frequently missing a joke). While that’s not a super high percentage, does this imply that there’s a number of us who might also be a little “too serious” at times? Given the whirlwind of negativity that smothers each new day, it’s easy to understand its sobering effect on our life outlook.

Recently a number of us at The Collective watched Iliza Shlesinger’s Elder Millennial stand-up on Netflix. Like many of you, we too encountered some unexpected [life] events that were nothing shy of sh!!ty. But good comedy and people are healing, and it felt good to laugh.

Monday is almost gone! As you continue your week, we hope these next couple of videos provide you with some laughs. After all, sometimes that’s the best reaction to life’s “Are you f*%k!ng me?!” moments.

Friend’s Blooper-“The One With Joey’s New Brain”

I recently started re-watching some favorite episodes from Friends. Its been some 24 years since the show’s premiere, but there continue to be some favorite scenes that I will never tire of. In this case, Ross’s horrific bagpipe playing and Phoebe “singing” along. (Please forgive the video quality, along with Ross’s attempt.)

James Corden-Ragnarok in 4D with ‘Thor’ Cast

I adore James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, but this was equally as entertaining. A live adaptation of Ragnarok? YES! PLEASE! More 4D performances!

World’s Funniest Comedians

I’m sharing this one mostly because of Robin Williams, who graced the world with his entire being.

Mad Lib Theater w/Benedict Cumberbatch

This video combines two of The Collective’s favorites—Benedict Cumberbatch and the game of Mad Libs. Watch Jimmy Fallon’s Mad Lib Theater with Benedict Cumberbatch, then watch the episode with John Cena.
