Comedy update #3:

Most people think you have to be nuts to do stand-up comedy.

However, counselor and stand-up comic David Granirer offers it as a form of therapy. In David’s Stand Up For Mental Health course, mental health consumers turn their problems into comedy, then perform their acts at conferences, treament centres, psych wards, and for various mental health organizations.

And at 7:00 p.m. on April 9, the 2006 class graduates with a fundraiser gala, on the Granville Island Stage (next to Granville Is. Market) with headliner Mike MacDonald (Just For Laughs, CBC, Showtime). Details here, or buy tickets here.
