Laugh #3 - The Party in the Back

Inspiration:
This laugh is inspired by two things, one of my favorite actor/comedians Ricky Gervais and one of the most hilarious haircuts/lifestyles - the mullet.  Plus its my birthday at the end of this week (shameless plug) so I felt it was fitting.

Sound profile:
Much like the mullet this laugh starts off with the business in the front but then surprises you with the party on the back end.  It's high pitch and irreverence show that you mean business and everyone else better just hold on to their hats.

Difficulty:
This is definitely an intermediate level laugh.  The reason this is rated intermediate is because just like throwing a good party takes some know how and planning, so does this laugh.

Laugh #2 - the roller

Inspiration:  
This laugh is inspired by the popular actor Seth Rogen and I found it so funny I needed to share it with the world - it just kind of rolls out.

Sound profile:  
This is a laid back laugh that likes to have a good time but doesn't need to be the center of attention.  It says I know what you are saying is funny, but I don't need to snort or guffaw because what I am hearing is humorous.

Difficulty:  
This is more toward the intermediate level.  It should not be attempted as it requires restraint that may not be mastered by a beginner.

Laugh #1 - the goat machine gun

Inspiration:  
This laugh is inspired by one of my best friends ex girlfriends.  She literally used to laugh like a goat.  Was it coincidence that they broke up after I revealed this to him...could be, but I think he just came to his senses.

Sound profile:  
This is a repeater, and a little harsh as the sounds pierce the ears with its repetitive stings, very confident, and almost cocky as the same sound is sent out several times.

Difficulty:  
This is a good beginner/intermediate laugh.  The repetitive nature of this makes it easy to get the hang of but the obnoxious factor makes it an intermediate level because the execution requires a great deal of confidence.
