In this seminar, Doug explores humor and laughter; what it is, and how it brings healing to individuals, communities, and it’s restorative effect on our world.
For thirty-five years Doug Berky has traveled entertaining audiences of all ages using circus arts, physical comedy, and storytelling in venues as diverse as performing art centers, school gymnasiums, refugee camps and prisons. The element of his performance most welcome by these diverse audiences is laughter.
Doug experienced first hand the importance of humor growing up with a mother suffering from a chronic disease, lupus. Doug will share stories, sketches, and other discoveries made along the way on how laughter has made a bumpy ride easier to handle.
