Comedy on Demand: Laugh Factory on PS3 Updated

Laugh Factory on PS3

How much do you think your health is worth? How much do you think having a smile on your face every day is worth? When the stresses of life – work, school, traffic, kids – get too much for you, the best escape, the best medicine, is laughter.

The Laugh Factory has been providing the biggest and best laughs for over 34 years. Owner and Founder Jamie Masada, has referred to comedians for years as “Doctors of the Soul” and his new partnership with PlayStation 3 is offering laughs to PlayStation 3 subscribers for only 10 cents a day.

For less than $3 a month, the best comedians in the world will help you forget your problems or, at the very least, help you laugh at their problems!

“It is our mission to bring smiles to the faces of as many people in the world as possible and the monthly fee barely cover our costs,” says Masada, “but it is cheaper than any pharmaceutical solution, I’ll tell you that. Perhaps this offer will put Big Pharma out of business.”

In addition to the established comics, new comedians will be added daily offering thousands of hours of laughs and smiles to help provide you with a more enjoyable daily experience. As life – and its crises come and go – one can always find great comfort in having a place to go and get some needed laughs. Exclusive footage, not seen before, will be provided for you to enjoy and take your mind off all of your troubles.

No need to take our word for it. Researchers at Loma Linda University and Oakcrest Health Research Institute in Yucaipa discovered that a good belly laugh appears to beneficially affect the body’s hormones. “The benefits of laughter are similar to exercise” says lead researcher Lee Berk, of Loma Linda University. “Laughter has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system. Blood pressure is lowered overall and resting heart rate decreases. Additionally, the immune system appears to get tuned up.” In short, he says, “We should become more serious about laughter.”

You can find the refreshed Laugh Factory app in the “TV/Video Services” category on the PlayStation 3 XMB, as well as in the “Apps” section of the PlayStation Store later on today.

I may have to check into this, the price point means at the very least I could give it a chance. Who knows I may like it.

I tried the beta when it first came out many months ago. I found the content very limited vis-a-vis being funny. I deleted. How have you improved content since then?

The beta wasn’t very encouraging, especially given these new shots of the interface. Seems like minimal improvement at best. I found some funny clips on there from Kevin Nealon and a couple others, but the app itself is pretty archaic.

Thats what T.V. is for.

Not Sony.

And @1 seems to like anything.

I hate to keep having to bring up the fact.

That you as Sony, really need to start doing a better job at judgment decisions at allowing anything to be associated with your company.

Be better judges, and maybe better projects will be offered.

Instead of anything to make a quick buck.

The beta was ok but it had it’s issues hopefully now I can skip ahead during a performance without the screen freezing while the audio continues.

If I want to watch comedy via streaming video, I’ll just watch Microsoft’s press conference. :P

Any chance of getting the app on the Vita eventually? If it had cross-platform compatibility, it’d be an insta-buy.
