Mini Episode 14: Are Comedians Sad Clowns?

In our 14th mini episode we discuss the lore that comedians are all just sad, morose clowns.

Comedians get a bad rap of being sad clowns who are always depressed when they're not on stage. But is that even true? Is there a higher rate of mental health issues in the entertainment industry or the arts compared to other professions? We discuss that with facts and figures to, hopefully, dispel that myth. Trigger warning: this episode does include topics of depression and suicide. If you are struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide, please seek help from a professional and support from your community. Got your back.
