Does Humor Build or Destroy Intimacy?

Expanding on the work of Voltaire, Immanuel Kant wrote in his Critique of Judgment that there are three things that humans can use to counter balance life’s troubles: hope, sleep and laughter.

With the latter of Kant’s threesome in mind, I emailed seven young people I’m mentoring, asking them to write about a funny story from their life. The exercise was part of a larger storytelling workshop I’m running with the Stuttering Association for the Young. I was asking them to find some element of humor in the situations that their stutter can create.

Some of them wrote to tell me how difficult the assignment was, how many troubles they were battling in their lives. I worried that they felt my exercise was making light of their difficulties. I worried that I was asking them to trivialize the experiences that meant so much to them. I was nervous that their writing would stray from the hard won insights they had gleaned so far.

Still they persisted, all of them, and they sent in their most hope-filled stories. They wrote specific, and often surprising, stories that showed them as the confident people they are. They got to reinvent their narratives and I got to laugh alongside them for a moment, to feel like all our sorrows were relieved.

I was, I am, enormously proud of them. Many of them wrote their most gripping stories so far. And yet, I saw that humor could also put up a wall. It could become something to hide behind.

I should have realized. It had, at times, been that way in my own life. Make the joke first, preempt it so it can’t hurt you. Laugh the loudest. Tell the most jokes so people will like you. In spite of it. Stand on the outside and observe, so as not to be in the messy, intimate fray of conversation.

As Beth Kephart writes in Handling the Truth, “Funny lives in the overestimated, the caricature, the stretch.” All the magnification and hyperbole that we use to make other people laugh does not always square with the quiet creation of true connections.

I can see the truth of Kephart’s words in my own life, and yet there is in another truth that sits alongside it. The people I feel closest to are the ones I can laugh with, the ones who have a taste for both the tragic and the comic. It is just as difficult to spend our time around those who wallow in the difficulties of their life, as it is to feel close to a person who makes a joke out of anything and everything.

According to the research of psychologist William Hampes, having a sense of humor can generate intimacy and trust. Others are drawn to our playfulness and our jokes put them at ease. It connects us and liberates us. It allows us to see our struggles, for a moment, in a more optimistic light. It invites others to do the same.

I am suspicious of people who never laugh, and I am suspicious of people who laugh too much. I feel closest to those who see the absurdity in awful situations and who laugh as easily as they cry. And so humor becomes a kind of litmus test. Giggling together becomes the start of intimacy, the beginning of something deeper.

What about you? Do you think humor builds, or ruins, intimacy?

Rosie’s Back… With Heartfelt Humor!

2014-09-12-RosieatMcCurdyswLeeEnChung3.21.14.JPG

Rosie’s back! I am so excited that Rosie O’Donnell will be back on daytime television, starting Monday, Sept. 15, 2014 — she got her gig back on ABC’s The View with Whoopi Goldberg and new co-host broadcasters such as Nicole Wallace and the petite, snappy Rosie Perez!

I even spotted comedienne Rosie in the front row of Barbara Walter’s final appearance on The View on May 16, 2014 after Barbara’s 800 episodes and 50 years in television. I’d like to salute Rosie O’Donnell before her next 50 laughs on television.

Just last weekend I watched Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna, Geena Davis and Tom Hanks in the 1992 movie “A League of Their Own,” where Rosie stomped in the locker room and exclaimed “I’m so depressed – I could eat a cow!”. Rosie wore the #22 baseball uniform and portrayed Doris Murphy, who had played third base in the A.A.G.P.B.L. (All-American Girls Professional Baseball League). I have always wanted to let Rosie know that Doris Murphy had lived in Sarasota.

I have interacted with Miss Doris at her assistant living facility prior to her recent death, and she used to throw a mean baseball even in her later years. The large black dog Shadow (who died this year) used to follow Miss Doris everywhere — perhaps she was the only one who could make the dog really run to fetch. Rosie has recently made Florida’s suncoast her new home, though not in time to play catch with Miss Doris, who was a star way before Rosie played her in the movie…

I had the delight of sitting in the third row for Rosie O’Donnell on her birthday back in March this year. She celebrated by performing her stand-up act in front of a sold-out audience at McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre and Humor Institute (which just moved to its new digs in downtown Sarasota). My Columbia alumna friend Lois Lucek had an extra ticket and invited me to… yes — the late night viewing — usually raunchier, right? While waiting in line, I bumped into so many gal pals leaving the earlier show that I could tell everyone had a hilarious time.

Rosie was snarky (I love snarky!), self-deprecating (like the late Joan Rivers), original and real! On her 52nd birthday night, Rosie confessed her gratitude of surviving her heart attack, which is the #1 killer for women (1 in every 4 deaths in the U.S. is caused by heart disease, according to the Center for Disease Control). She even bellowed a hip-hop “HEPPP” chant of her five symptoms of a heart attack: Hot, Exhausted, Pain, Pale & Puke. She ended her routine by wishing “You all stay heart healthy,” and then Les McCurdy (longtime owner of McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre) brought onto stage a birthday key lime pie (a local staple) with two pink candles!

Funny how Barbra Streisand will be on NBC’s The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night – the same day that Rosie will debut again on ABC’s The View. Rosie is a HUGE fan of Barbra (me too when I lip-synched in the newly built Barclays Center during Streisand’s “Back to Brooklyn” concert on October 11, 2012, which later appeared on PBS in 2013), so maybe Rosie can somehow get her beloved Barbra (not Barbara Walters) on The View and sing a duet…

I hope to bump into Rosie on the suncoast again — maybe even at a Baltimore Orioles spring training game where she should throw out the first pitch! I would thank Rosie for continuing to share her heartfelt emotions with the world!
