“If your enemy is laughing how can he bludgeon you to death?”

Mel Brooks

We have no control over the arms race or the environment, reality is rough, things aren’t perfect and you do get hurt as Frank Sinatra used to sing, that’s life, riding high in April, shot down in May. But you can’t choose denial or fantasy for too long; to do this is to invite madness. Humour, satire and comedy are a manageable middle ground because they give us the opportunity to laugh at reality– one Leunig cartoon generally has a more potent message than the entire newspaper. Laughter makes you light headed, but it also brings light. It's intoxicating. It works.

Rachel Berger’s story is one of triumph and success. A story that makes you believe in the strength of the human spirit and the power of laughter to overcome the most gruelling circumstances.

  • Laughter can give you the tools to use humour and transform the way you communicate and make decisions.

  • Rachel reveals how humour has helped her through various life challenges and how humour can also identify the beliefs that present barriers to getting the results you want.

  • Laughter helps to boost your immune system and can help business professionals cope with the ever-increasing stressors we’ve come to accept as normal.

  • Laughter and seeing things through a humorous lens can give you tools to source your own personal strength and feel energised. AND you can integrate humour into everything you do.

  • Humour can help you shift from being reactive to proactive because it helps you to recognise that things can shift and we have the ability to make a positive impact on whatever it is we’re facing in our lives.


Laughing 100 times a day is equivalent to 10 minutes of aerobic activity.

“It is the offbeat observation, the incisive knack of showing up everyday events for the ludicrous pantomimes they really are that separate the women from the girls ... In this department Rachel Berger is a real Star...”

The Guardian, London

“She’s brave, funny, clever and best of all, human.”

The Sunday Age

“Berger is a whirling dervish of wit, revelation and philosophy.”
The Sydney Morning Herald
