Clown work is no laughing matter if you ask Ken Sadler. The Louisiana native, retired insurance executive and longtime Oxford resident has significant credibility in expressing that opinion since he has served as the Shore Health’s CLO (chief laughter officer) for almost a decade.
Each week, Sadler, a.k.a. Dr. Goodwrench makes his rounds in the inpatient wards of the hospital to administer humor to those that are willing to take this powerful medicine. Those that do have a good chance of experiencing lower blood pressure, less pain, and a happier outlook as a result.
In this Spy profile, we talk to Ken about how he started his “practice,” the science of laughter, and the national Caring Clowns organization that certifies hospital clowns throughout the country.
