Local Author :: Jon Lannen :: The Giraffe That Taught Me How To Laugh

The Giraffe That Taught Me How To Laugh is the culmination of Jon Jon Lannen’s love for the soul’s art of improvisation. This uplifting story begins with a young boy who tassels his way through the jungle to meet the giraffe that taught him how to laugh. Life, the giraffe, becomes one of the most beautiful influences in the young boy’s life by teaching him the basics of improv. The giraffe’s love and understanding for the art is contagiously caught by the young man, which creates beautiful scenes and understanding of character. The journey of The Giraffe That Taught Me How To Laugh will stick with you, whether you’re a seasoned actor or a child. Improvisation is bliss. Yes. And.
