Welcome to YOU JUST HAVE TO LAUGH – also known as YJHTL. Our purpose is serve humanity one laugh at a time. We do this by using humor to make TOUGH TIMES better. And it works.In my journey as a comedian for over 37 years I have witnessed the healing effects humor and laughter have had on people going through life’s toughest times. My intention is to share with you what thousands of people have shared with me. Humor heals us emotionally. That’s what my three books prove. Real stories from real people that find humor and joy smack dab in the middle of their kaleidoscope of crap. Check them out at my laugh store. If you or someone you know is going through a tough time these books will help.

I created the Web series because I wanted you to SEE what I got to see when I interviewed someone – their joy, their pain and their ability to find humor in a not-so funny time. There are no writers, no directors and no actors pretending to be real people. These amazing people will Inspire, teach and entertain you as they share their unique humorous victories. I am thrilled at the opportunity to share it with you. Welcome to our joyful and playful fellowship!

  1. Charles and I really enjoyed your thought-provoking presentation. I enjoyed the other talks, and you are good on the bongos! We cruised 8/30 to 9/6 on the NCL Jewel. Keep up the good work. I’ve stolen some of your remarks for my scrapbook. I’ll give you credit. Please continue to talk about bullying…maybe the NFL could learn something, too.

  3. We really enjoyed your presentations on the Norwegian Sun returning to Tampa on 10/26. You made us laugh so much but what made it best was it was all true about real people. I also appreciated that your show was for families and applied to all ages. Thank you for making our cruise great.

  4. Hi David: I am Tom Stubbs RN, if you remember we met on the Panama cruse, and I am sure you do. We talked about Endorphins, the book that I spoke to you about is called “The Pleasure Connection, How Endorphins Affect Our Health and Happiness by Deva Beck and James Beck. It is no longer available but may be found at AbeBooks, it is a great book. We just returned from Ecuador so I am sorry for not getting this info to you sooner. We also spoke to you about the suicide death of our fourth son, if we can help with thoughts or feelings about dealing with this, please let us know. Thanks for all the laughs: Tom and Teddi Stubbs

  5. David-
    We saw your shows on the NCL Jewel 11/22-29, and spoke with you about my daughter recently surviving a severe case of Mono. We all loved your shows and are impressed by how you are helping so many people. Can you please add me to any email list you have, and let me know how I can purchase the Naster Blaster for my husband for Christmas?

  7. My family just got off the NCL Jewel 11-29 to 12-6 and we loved you! Outside the theater after your bully proof talk my youngest boy, 8 years old made a small comment to you and you looked him straight in the eye and commented back to him and gave him your attention meant so much to him. Not only are you a extremely funny man you are helping so many with your insight compassion.
