A group of Funny Bones Improvisers pose outside of the Ronald McDonald House in New Orleans, one of the many locations they visit each month.

There’s a special group of improvisers in New Orleans who want nothing more than to get hospital-bound kids to laugh. They're called Funny Bones Improv and on this week’s Notes from New Orleans, Sharon Litwin talks with two of their leaders: executive director, Janet Wilson, and local director and performer Emily Slazer. 

WWNO has lost a dear member of its community in Sharon Litwin, co-founder and president of NolaVie. She passed away Friday, June 24, 2016. Read a tribute to Sharon on NolaVie.com.
