Jeopardy Game Show for memory and brain enhancement
Feb 14 2015

I occasionally watch Jeopardy Game Show as a mental exercise to keep my brain young. Jeopardy is one of the best shows on TV, perhaps the best, to improve memory and refresh your memory of words and events. Furthermore, I think anyone who wants to be a comedian, or is a comedian, would be helped by watching and studying Jeopardy since your response becomes faster and you can have a wider selection of words in your brain to come up with when making a joke by Ray Sahelian, M.D.
