SYNOPSIS:

Laughter, and especially what makes people laugh, is highly revealing of the culture we live in. Historically, humor is a good way to measure a healthy society. Everywhere we laugh, but rarely for the same reasons. World Laughs looks at these specifics all around the world.

Led by different host, each episode of World Laughs offers a rich journey through the global adventure of laugh. As meeting with laughter from around the globe, sociologists or stand-up comedians, the series attempts to understand different cultures though what makes them laugh.
