Situational Comedy Teleclass! By Absurdified Foo Ling Master!

Learn Comedy from the Best!¬† Now’s Your Chance.

Breaking News from Swami Beyondananda

Learn the Art of Situational Comedy From An Absurdified Foo Ling Master!
BeyondaNews Special Update:
Dear Friends:

If you want to learn how to use cosmic comedy to evoke healing laughter in just about any situation, Steve Bhaerman’s four-week Course In Laughter teleclass begins this coming Tuesday, August 10th. We are also doing a two-hour interactive intensive, Writing Your Laugh Story, on Wednesday, August 25th. Why write your Laugh Story? Well, you know the old saying … laugh at yourself, and the whole world will laugh at you too!

Still trying to make up your mind? Perhaps these FAQ’s will help:

Q. Does laughter really heal?

A. Absolutely. Studies show that just one Youngman of laughter – the comedy contained in just one one-liner – can heal up to a megahurt of emotional pain.

Q. Will taking either of these classes make me funnier?

A. God says we’re all funnier than we could ever imagine. Taking this class will help you see funnier, and see how funny we all are. In other words, life is a comedy of situations and we’re just having an episode.

Q. My co-worker is a jerk. Will I be able to learn a snappy comeback next time he acts jerky?

A. Better than that. You will learn to take full responsibility for everything in your life. That way, next time he bothers you, you can say to him, “Why did I create a jerk like you in my life?”

Q. Will I learn the secret to successful joke-telling?

A. That, we will give you for free. The secret? The punch line goes at the end.

Q. Will this class help me deal with my financial challenges?

A. It certainly will. To paraphrase the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, laughter will get us through times of no money better than money will get us through times of no laughter.

Q. Will you double my money back if I don’t like the class?

A. Being a Swami allows me to go one better: If not completely satisfied, I will double your karma back! People must love this class, because so far I have had no takers.

Seriously, don’t miss this opportunity to achieve your humorin’ potential.
