If there’s one thing we could all do with more of it’s a good laugh. When times are tough and the future is uncertain nothing is going to make you feel that bit better more than a jolly good giggle, and whether you’re being regaled with anecdotes by a gang of friends, having your fancy tickled by one-liners or even gasping with laughter over the latest YouTube ‘Fail’, laughter really is the best medicine. Which is why...
