In these times of distress and panicked financial situations it is important to keep in mind the importance of humor. The economy sucks and god knows no “new jobs” are being invented but you can’t let the idea of never owning a house, or a car, or having to move back to your parents house, or into a cardboard box, let you down. On the happy side you can find free stuff that can even cause laughter. You may have heard this, laughter is good medicine hence good hobo helathcare. One can find various places that provide chuckles at improv theaters as close as a nearby subway ride to the island of Manhattan. Each nite one can witness for a reasonable cost a performance of profound exciting moments of now. Theaters such as Upright Citizens Brigade, The P.I.T. and Magnet Theater can be found in the Manhattan area. Magnet Theater magnetheater.com features $5 improv shows every night except Monday and $1 PBRs on Thursday nites at the bar. There are even free mixer nights Wednesday & Thursday nights if you want to get on the stage with your hoboself. Also free trial classes. Keep your chin up it might feel like the economic world is falling apart and it is, try to keep in mind it is not just for you but for everybody, might as well laugh about it.
