#23: Standup comedy for men at risk of suicide

Angie Belcher, Comedian

Severe depression is a taboo, and when people talk about it, they usually do it with utmost seriousness. Angie Belcher, founder of Comedy on Referral, has another approach: She teaches men at risk of suicide standup comedy – and has just won NHS funding for it. In this episode, Angie explains to us how she came up with the idea and how using self-satire on stage makes people stronger and more self-confident.
