We all love a good laugh; a solid sense of humor can help us get through a lot of life's ups and downs. But for people whose job it is to create laughter, they often lead dark, depressed life. The documentary "Laugh Addict: Toxic Drug or Best Medicine?" explores the double-edged sword of comedy, its positive and negative effects. Producer-Director Jim Rauth joins us to discuss the film, along with Tony Kuney, one of the film's subjects.

This local film is premiering on Thursday, January 17 at 7pm at Rounding Third (6317 W. Bluemound Road); a Comedy College stand-up show will follow the film. You can bring new winter hats or gloves to donate or a suggested $5 donation; the items and money will be donated to Dryhootch Milwaukee!
