Are you someone that likes a laugh in life but sometimes feels that there is a time and a place for it?
You will suppress it and keep the stoney face that your bosses or environment seem to want as the normal way of being.
Well todays guest is an expert in Gelotology the study of laughter and its effects on the body, and travels the world presenting in a humorous but informative manner that audiences have been raving about for years.
He teaches us to find the funny in situations even if those situations aren't outwardly the humorous types that we should be laughing at.
And I guess that will make the world a lot nicer to live in I imagine.
Starting his career way back in 1963 designing shows for tv characters such as Captain Kangaroo, he seems a man that from the start has managed to mix work and play, enjoying himself in most situations that he found himself in.
And now with over 20 books written on the subject of laughter such as "The Healing Power of Humor, The Courage to Laugh, and Change Your Life!" does he still feel that their is a lot to be done to get his message out there?
And does he feel that the world is losing the ability to laugh quite in the same way as we would have done in years gone by?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with Mr Laughter himself, Mr Allen Klein.

Todays guest is a man who is driven to spread the premise of accountability across the world.
He believes that we are all looking around for someone else to take control, or someone else to show us the way to the life that we want.
Its actually ourselves that are setting our own schedules, and finding the excuses why we don't do something.
Its us who look around for someone to blame when things go wrong.
Its us that tell us how tired we are, or need a night off.
No one else.
And in his pursuit to get this message out to the widest audience he has authored 10 books, is the creator of The Accountability Academy®, and has been a contributing author to countless publications throughout his career.
But what makes his message so powerful is that the principles that he preaches are as valid to an individual as a huge organisation.
He can help turn round failing businesses, poor performing teams, or simply find the spark to make us all start saying "No Excuses" anymore.
So where did he start getting going in his career, or did he always have the belief that it was excuses that hold us back?
And does he believe that the path he is treading is aligned to his authentic self, or has he become successful by finding something that he is great at, even if it wasn't part of the master plan?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Sam Silverstein.
