Callaghan’s mom, Kelsea McLaughlin, bought her son a kid-friendly joke book about six months ago, which he had been practicing with.

“Callaghan has been actively telling us one-liners and knock-knock jokes for the past six months or so,” his mom, Kelsea McLaughlin, tells Yahoo Life. “We felt it was time for a fresh audience!”

The joke stand started April 14, with Kelsea posting on social media to alert friends, family and neighbors to stop by and listen to Callaghan recite his punchlines.

Callaghan, the oldest of three, worked with his parents to set up the stand, so he could tell his jokes free of charge to passersby. His family says he originally wanted to start a lemonade stand in the spring, but found a way to adapt the idea to comply with social distancing guidelines.
