LAUGHING MATTERS: Tita Begashaw loves to laugh. In fact, she teaches people how to laugh till their sides ache. But things weren’t always so jolly for her. In 1988, Tita had escaped a tough life in Ethiopia and relocated to the US. But a few years later, her brother was killed – by the very cousin she’d encouraged to move to America.  She tells Jonathan how she discovered the magic of laughter, and teaches a sceptical Jonathan how to join in the fun!
