Mental Health Comedy Hour at Strut!
January 25 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
At the Mental Health Comedy Hour “We’re not OK, and that’s OK!”
Mental Health Comedy Hour aims to de-stigmatize mental illness and therapy by using humor and having open conversations about often difficult topics. They’ve done the show all over the bay area, and now are going to do a show at Strut focusing on queer mental health!
Are you a queer person dealing with Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, or Bipolar disorder?…why not laugh about it? The bay area’s funniest queer stand up comedians tell jokes and talk about their life with mental illness. All in the jovial environment of a late night talk show at Strut! Featuring interviews with licensed professional therapists and more!
Hosted by Wonder Dave and Kristee Ono two comedians who have themselves struggled with mental illness and found both therapy and talking about mental health in their comedy to be beneficial.
The show format is part stand-up comedy show, part late night talk show featuring interviews and sketch comedy segments. Mental Health Comedy Hour showcases comedians who have mental health conditions and after their sets interviews them about their mental health. Every show features a special guest mental health professional who is interviewed about their field of work. We do this to demystify the profession and encourage people who might be interested in seeking help to do so.
