Los Angeles, California:

Looks like it's cost more this year for a few laughs, according to
California attorney Malcolm Kushner, who compiles the annual Cost of
Laughing Index.

The index tracks the prices of everything from Groucho Marx glasses to pink
gorilla telegrams; it went up 3 percent the past year, boosted by a 38
percent increase in the newsstand price of Mad Magazine, a 3 percent
increase in the minimum writing fee for a television sitcom and a 10 percent
increase in the price of rubber chickens ($6 a dozen.)
