It would be good to hear what makes you laugh out loud a really belly laugh.
I used to belly laugh out loud while reading the Herriot series myDh laughs out loud at certain tv programmes which I don’t find funny at all. Compo etc

'Would I Lie to You' makes me laugh out loud, but little else does.

How about "Only Fools and Horses!"? grin

Some of the old 'Dad's Army'. So funny.

Some of the Only Fools series and the Seinfeld series never fails to make me laugh...well most of the episodes anyway esp the one about the dwarf and Kramer's jeans and George's wallet and the one about Kramer and Jerry's dad playing pool in a tiny room in their underwear...better stop there as it's given me the impetus to watch them yet again... now.😄 😂🤣🤣

I laugh out loud, something 9n the TV, a good bit in a book, at the hairdressers, anywhere really, but I live alone, I talk to myself, out loud, I tell myself off, I ask myself questions and often give the answers too.

I have lost all my inhibitions now I’m well over 75. I smile and nod to passers by when out walking, they may think I’m nuts, I’m not, just cheering someone up with a chirpy, good morning. And for tha5 person who looks like they’re struggling, I ask, hi, are you ok? Can I help?
You’d be very surprised at the lovely smiles I get back, now people know me, from seeing of course and the hardworking staff at my local coop who now smile first, alright they ask? It’s just lovely.

On YouTube search for Victoria wood or Freddy Starr. Really good belly laughs both of them. Have fun.

You only have to mention the title of the book "Three Men In a Boat" to my husband, and he's roaring with laughter. My late father in law had the same reaction.

(I've never read it, so don't know if it's that funny.)

‘Friends’ - even though I’ve seen each episode countless times!

Rosina Sun 22-Mar-20 12:29:02

'Not Going Out'does it for me - and I have recently watched 'Miranda' and found it so funny.

Purplepixie Sun 22-Mar-20 12:29:33

I always laugh out loud when I watch Still Game, so funny!

When someone gets the giggles especially on tv, newscasters etc. If you google fits of laughter you can find plenty of them. There is one with Elvis Presley singing are you lonesome tonight where he starts laughing and can’t stop while the backing singer keeps on going.
