Description

'Sometimes I think I have felt everything I'm ever gonna feel and from here on out, I'm not gonna feel anything new. Just lesser versions of what I've already felt'. Life is No Laughing Matter's a performance about mental illness, suicide and radical cure attempts. Part personal narrative, part social rant, part mess; Life is No Laughing Matter tells the exhausting and hilarious account of living with depression, from the urgency of finding a cure, dissecting the cultural disease, to eating a f*ck ton of bananas. Expect shit metaphors, codependency, holy water and Yoko Ono.
