Julia Sutherland goes in search of humour in dark places, featuring comedians tackling their mental health issues through laughter, live on stage in Edinburgh.

Featuring performances and interviews from the likes of Felicity Ward and Janey Godley, Feeling Kind of Funny aims to challenge the stigma around mental health.

Julia also chats to TV producer John Lloyd about his battle with depression.

This two-part series was broadcast as part of BBC Radio Scotland's Changing Minds season.

Dabster Productions director Richard Melvin says: "The show was extremely insightful for us and really demonstrates the power of comedy. Nothing should be off limits and these comedians inspired me to be braver and push boundaries as a programme maker and storyteller."
