Series 1, Episode 1
Before taking to the stage, Joel, Kiri, John and Judi gather backstage to talk about their own relationships to mental health, and how that affects their lives and their comedy. These include stories about dealing with grief, the side effects of gaslighting, and how not to cry on the toilet.
These delicate issues are dealt with intelligently and sensitively by the comedians, whose natural comedic instincts allow them to ﬁnd the humanity and comedy in even the darkest of situations. The conversations seamlessly blend with the stand-up material, lending additional weight and meaning to both in the process.
