CHICAGO (AP) -- It is a laughing matter -- at least at a suburban Chicago college. Harper College is offering a course to give people a case of the giggles. Stand-up comic Dobie Maxwell is one of instructors of "From Humor to Health: Comedy and Healthy Living." He says they're not trying to make comedians out of the students. He says the idea is show how laughter can improve most anyone's life. The Chicago Sun-Times reports the laugh class will be free and open to the community.
