Comedy Over Depression shines a spotlight on depression; it’s better to get help, than to suffer in silence. Talk to your friends, your favorite aunt, the pastor, the Uber driver –release it and take the next step. Work it out the right way…we might save someone. Ultimately, I want to help some people. Help people on purpose –not just on accident.
The Comedy Over Depression Foundation will provide comedy concerts that address the taboo subject of Depression and Mental Health in underserved communities.
twenty plus Years of Experience
My comedy style is a mix between anecdotes and storytelling.
After the death of my brother and some very close friends, depression found me. Although I didn’t know what it was initially, what ultimately helped me was being on stage. I discovered that laughter helps people on the other side.
While performing I met a guy who told me, “I was going to kill myself after your show. I changed my mind when you said, “Make some noise if you’re glad to be alive”. He said he clapped with everyone else. He told me that he changed his mind because of my show. Five years after that show, he brought his daughters to one of my shows. He sent one of his daughters over to tell me that I saved his life. This man told me his story. He was going to do it [commit suicide] with pills in ice cream. I did an entire year of shows based on it.
I’m real and raw. No filter. It’s time to elevate.
