The projects I’m involved with include:
Mental health comedy hourMental Health Comedy Hour aims to destigmatize mental illness and therapy by using humor and having open conversations about often difficult topics.
Mental Health Comedy Hour hosts Kristee Ono and Wonder Dave are two comedians who have themselves struggled with mental illness and found both therapy and talking about mental health in their comedy to be beneficial.
The show format is part stand-up comedy show, part late night talk show featuring interviews and sketch comedy segments. Mental Health Comedy Hour showcases comedians who have mental health conditions and after their sets interviews them about their mental health. Every show features a special guest therapist or mental health professional who is interviewed about their field of work. We do this to demystify the profession and encourage people who might be interested in seeking help to do so.
If truth is what makes comedy great then telling the truth about difficult topics can make great comedy. We regularly do shows in SF, Oakland, and Santa Cruz. Follow our facebook page for updates on when we will begin doing shows again.
Hysteria comedy aims to highlight the voices of women and LGBTQ+ comedians in the Bay area. We run monthly open mic 2nd Tuesdays of the month at Martuni’s, A showcase on the 4th Sunday of the month at Jolene’s and a quarterly showcase called Castro Comedy featuring LGBTQ+ comedians at Strut in San Francisco.
