Today’s comic deals with something a lot of people deal with on an ongoing basis. I’m talking about the emotional anguish and pain that comes from going up on stage and trying to make a room full of strangers laugh.

Believe it or not, but many of our favorite comedians are depressed individuals. We’re all people, and we all go through the same shit life throws at us. And despite how difficult it is to get up on that stage, there is a sense of relief when you can share your pain with an audience and they understand exactly where you’re coming from.

It makes the world feel a little less lonely when we can all laugh at our problems together as a group.

Happy New Year everyone!
