Laugh and Learn While You Experience the Relationship Between Education and Humor



Humor for the Health of It cannot be held responsible if during the show

your sides end up splitting and you end up in stitches

You may have seen educators and you may have seen humorists ...

but how often have you seen a humorous educator?

Why Choose Humor for the Health of it?

By presenting updated information from a comedian/physiologist/heath educator and neuroscience researchers perspective, the audience is given the opportunity to laugh and learn. One minute they will think they are in a comedy club, while the next minute they couldn't be more relaxed if they were lounging in a jacuzzi.

Joel Weintraub performed at our 3-day conference-Holistic Medicine:Primary Care for the 21st Century. Jointly sponsored by the College of Osteopathic Medicine and the American Board of Holistic Medicine(ABHM), the vast majority of the audience were physicians. Judging from the laugher, their response to his performance was enthusiastically positive. Joel is funny, clever and quite talented in the manner in which he integrated his performance. A job well done! The conference attendeesand I were very pleased.

The most scientifically and medically competent comedy show I've hear heard.

If you have ever tried to orchestrate a conference ... then Joel Weintraub's presentation will certainly be music to your ears. Joel's uncanny ability to bring your audience from the depths of some intense sessions to a room filled with roaring laughter is simply magical. 

The interesting thing is, Joel does not throw out punch lines just to get a laugh. There is a message and meaning behind every laugh. If you are looking to improve employee morale, attitude and customer service, If you want to get the most out of your employees but you want your employees to get the most out of their job ... then you can't have another seminar without inviting Joel to speak at your conference.

On behalf of the Virginia Association of Counties, thank you for your participation in our annual conference.


You were a hit!! I received many positive comments about your entertaining presentation, "Humor for the Health of it". This is quite an accomplishment. The "Counties Put Citizens First" Conference at the Homestead last week was filled with "seasoned" elected officials who think they have seen or heard everything!!


Your energy was contagious and you did a great job stimulating the audience. Thanks again for sharing your insights and your down-to-earth message filled with ideas that can be used immediately.

Sincerely, Linda Butterfield CMP Director of Meetings & Events.

Medicine man from Lafayette Hill takes a funny look at life's foibles 

Laughter: it's still the best medicine.


By: May Mariner

"Stress is something you wish you didn't have," says Joel Weintraub. "But get together with friends and you kill yourself trying to prove that you have more of it. One guy says, "I've got an ulcer,' and the other replies, 'Mine's bleeding."

Same with older folks and their health problems. I walked into the lobby of a senior citizens' home and saw a guy talking to his friend.  One guy was complaining about his arthritis, the other one was talking about his heart disease.  Then  I see one guy just sitting there. He says, I'd like to develop a bunion so I can have a half-decent conversation.'"

Laughter Is the Medicine for Body and Soul

Art Carey

There is nothing in life as precious as laughter. Laughing is a close cousin of crying. It's a tool of catharsis, an involuntary spasm of deep emotion. Tragedy is often the wellspring of laughter and laughter helps us cope with the inexplicable and uncontrollable. Laughter, says Mel Brooks, is "our defense against the universe".

My personal philosophy is that 90 percent of life is absurd and the remaining 10 percent is nonsense. There are two ways to respond to this knowledge. You can seek solace with a drink in hand or you can laugh. I prefer the latter. It's more enjoyable, better for you body and mind and as we all know, he who laughs ... lasts.

Senior citizens learn how humor helps health

by Joyce Vanaman

VINELAND — The senior citizens went on a fitness walk on the outdoor track at the Center for Health and Fitness on Thursday, and they did country line dancing on the tennis court, and they laughed and laughed.

When Joel Weintraub asked what their hobbies were, some said playing pinochle, bingo and poker "I can tell I’m in New Jersey: everything is gambling.’ he said.

Weintraub's comedy-lecture, Humor for the Health of It" touched on stress management, nutrition, exercise and fitness, hobbies and recreation - all with humor.

The more than 100 seniors who participated In the activities at the Center for health and Fitness joined an estimated 100,000 seniors participating in National Senior Health and Fitness Day, said Erin Romani, sponsor of the Wellness Center at South Jersey Hospital-Bridgeton.

Weintrauh, who has a masters degree in exercise physioIogist and an undergraduate degree in health education from Temple University, has lectured to corporations. Government agencies and other organizations. He also has performed as a stand-up Comedian at numerous clubs on the East Coast

Using Jim Smith, 69, of Bridgeton, as his partner, Weintraub tossed him one plastic cup, which he said became boring; then two cups, which required some skill in going back and forth; then three cups, which imposed too much stress.
