    Great guy…go see him live he is funnnnny!

  4. How many bots are here posting about Trump and Democrats while completely ignoring the video about a comedian battling depression? There’s your proof that there’s bots on YouTube.

    Why is nobody commenting on how this dude looks like he could’ve been Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker in another life? Seriously, nearly twins those two, and are we sure that Joker wasn’t based on a dark, mirror universe-esque version of his life or something?

    • What’s ironic is he is in the movie Joker. He is one of the stand up comedians in the club. It’s a secret tidbit that only I know about. Don’t go spreading that info around, let’s keep it close to the chest.

    • i’ve been looking for this comment

  7. I like this man.
    Confident enough to speak of his flaws.

  8. Congrats on winning the battle with depression and keep on talking about it man. You make it funny and keep people aware of how truly difficult it is

    Another fantastic comedian that does a substantial amount of mental illness-normalizing material is Maria Bamford if anyone is interested or in need of some giggles.

  10. This guy wasn’t funny at the impeachment inquiry

  11. I’m afraid if I say I’m depressed they will commit me to an asylum. So I remain quiet and keep things bottled up.

    • Its not good to keep things bottled up

  12. I wish there was a way to die without breaking my mother’s heart

    Some people are constantly lying to you. That is why you are depressed

  18. I think it’s great that even though mental illness is a serious subject matter, it’s good that he’s facing it head on and in doing so making it feel less taboo and easier for people to open up about it.

  19. Good for you man. Much love to you.

  20. I can relate to the joke about leaving a suicide note. You’d really want to get that right – – a daunting endeavor.
