Search for lost laughter in Glum Britain.
Dr David Lewis, a stress management expert, organised the competition as part of the first National Laughter Week, which started yesterday.
He said: ''GB stands for Glum Britain, not Great Britain, these days. It's a serious problem.
''A good belly laugh releases chemicals into the blood stream that make you happier, oxygenates the body and gives your whole body a massage from within.
''It reduces stress and helps you live longer.
''To provide a good example of what such health-giving laughter sounds like, we are looking for Britain's best laugher. A person with the kind of laugh that makes you want to join in."
Judging the competition is London Comedy Store boss Don Ward.
