Hilton Head Comedy Club: A Healthy Hit

By: Jeff, H3 Program Intern

Thursday night’s about to strike, what to do!?  We can head to bed after a long hard day of exercise and engaging lectures at Hilton Head Health or hit the streets for a night out on the island. Regardless of how busy our guest’s days are it’s always fun to have an outing with the entire H3 family.

Since Fit Week 2009, we have added an every week adventure to the schedule, the notorious Hilton Head Comedy Club.  The club is owned and operated by John Biddle and Michael Paskevich and has given our guests the opportunity to experience Las Vegas comedic talent week in and week out.  Each week a different comic comes to town to provide a few laughs, and the talent these two gentlemen bring in is among the best.  To say the least, the outing has been nothing short of another healthy hit!

A Healthy hit, how so you ask?  Well, if we get to really thinking about it, laugh out loud fun supplies far more benefits to our minds and bodies than we may be aware.  Check out our 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 countdown:

 

 Physical Health Benefits:

1.  Boosts Immunity.  Increases immune cells and decreases our stress hormones.

2.  Decreases Pain.  Laughter triggers endorphins they may temporarily relieve pain.

Let me just leave y’all with one more fun fact about laughing… In a study done by Vanderbilt University, they found adults burn an average of 1.3 calories per minute. Looks like it’s time to laugh it up!
