    How to trigger laughter with your fingertips? This is the theme of Jos Houben's hilarious lesson. A virtuoso of gesture and mime, this enlightened teacher with an irresistible Belgian accent takes an hour to unravel the mechanics of laughter.

    With a table, two chairs and a jug of water, Jos Houben leads a scientific-burlesque lecture of a very special kind. A meticulous observer of our daily lives, he analyzes all types of laughter: clear, frank, massive, pinched, false, cynical or mocking... He dissects the causes and effects, and above all explains the inner workings of this precision mechanism.

    Drawing on body language, he takes a close look at the mimics, gestures and attitudes of laughter, illustrating them with irresistible examples, from a baby's first steps to the fall of a waiter in a restaurant, from the imitation of a chicken to that of an overdone camembert! Everything becomes a subject for his brilliant demonstrations and deft left-handedness. And at just over six feet tall, he's no match for Keaton or Chaplin.

    Actor, clown, mime and humorist, Jos Houben has been an actor for theater and television, a fellow traveler with Peter Brook, and now travels the world dispensing his science of the zygomatic. Skilled at uncovering the elusive, with remarkable finesse, this educational clown makes his laughter a high art!
