    You could hire a comedian but 'a barrel of laughs' refers to a person who is fun, funny and pleasant to be around. 

    Barrel of laughs originated from the ancient days of slavery when,  during coffee break,  slaves would make jokes about the slave owners but they would have to quickly crawl into a barrel to hide their laughter so not to upset the owners.

    Wow, that sounds terrible. What we humans sometimes do to each other --  geez.

    I've never understood it.

    EDIT: I agree with Rodney King's quote: "People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along?"
