Choose to laugh - it's good for you | Sebastian Gendry | TEDxManhattanBeach

Sebastian doesn't claim to be funny but he does make people laugh. In his novel and interactive talk, Sebastian talks about the benefits of choosing to laugh and leads the audience in some fun exercises designed to spark laughter and make us feel better.

In the early 2000s, a work-related burnout and ensuing journey towards recovery led him to discover, and fall in love with, the world of laughter.

He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, 60 minutes, ABCs Good Morning America, National Public Radio and many more national media outlets in the USA and abroad.
