While singers like Rose Short and Jershika Maple have put the talent of Killeen, Texas on a nationwide platform in recent years, let's not forget that they aren't the only Central Texans who can take command of a stage and spread joy. While their gifts involve singing like angels, there are some major talents here in Killeen who make us laugh like mischievous devils. It's time we celebrate them too.


We’ve all been told that laughter is by far the best prescription for depression, sickness, and even mental health struggles at times. Laughter can instantly change your mood and your attitude at a crucial moment. Have you ever had a day where you just wanna start all over again because it’s gone so wrong? Then someone makes you laugh, and in that moment you realize it’s really not that bad and it’s going to get a lot better.

That’s what laughter is all about. The last couple of years dealing with a pandemic, we have struggled with depression and being anti-social to one another. Laughter and happiness are needed now more than ever before.
