Funny Stories

Funny stories from Alaska humor speaker Michael R Dougherty, author of Humorous Stories from ALASKA and beyond.





"Hey these are fun stories"

My show is "Humorous Stories from ALASKA... and beyond"


The words "and beyond" are included because some of my fun stories take place in other locations besides Alaska. And right now you're about to discover some of those stories.

At my live show performances, audience members often tell me that many of my stories remind them of when they were growing up. I love hearing that because I enjoyed a lot of experiences growing up in Alaska, and in other places I've visited across the U.S.A.

Now site back, relax and enjoy the following stories that are guaranteed to make you smile.
