A boy in Canada figured he could cheer up his neighbors during the pandemic. Callaghan McLaughlin has been running a joke stand at the end of his driveway in British Columbia for the past week where he offers free laughs to passers by.
“There’s a lot of stress in the world,” the six-year-old comedian says. “And I kind of want to get some smiles on people’s faces.”
People can drive by or walk up to hear one of the 16 or 17 jokes Callaghan knows. He’s been learning from a kid-friendly joke book with one-liners and practicing on his parents for months. Here's a sample: “What’s red, white, and blue?” Wait for it … “A sad candy cane.”
