Yesterday, I posted a Facebook meme alluding to how most people only saw laughter when they saw Robin Williams, even though he was very open about his depression. Just a few hours later, I found these videos from Stand Up for Mental Health. Here are stand up comics who have been diagnosed with some form (and in some cases, several forms) of mental illness. In almost all cases, their humor stems from their relations to people and the world around them.
It’s hard to pick a favorite here. I can relate to just about all of these comics. I hope you enjoy these videos. We could all use a good laugh–even when we want to cry.
