Making the peace can be very hard work, especially when entire communities are heavily invested in seeing another community as “other”. Laughter is really good for our health and is a great way to build community. Warm affectionate teasing and joking is a wonderful way to grow relationships. Gentle comedy is a wonderful source of joy and fun. Making people laugh is a skill. Some people like visual jokes, others enjoy pranks, puns, slapstick. Cross-cultural humor is challenging.

Please send me suggestions for comedy, which playfully addresses peacebuilding and accepting diversity.
