About this Event

This event is closed to staff, faculty, and students at McMaster University.

Michael McCreary may only be twenty-four, but he’s already well on his way to fulfilling his lifelong, albeit short, dream of becoming a stand-up comedian.

The young comic, a high school grad from Orangeville, Ontario, was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of five. In an act of self-preservation, combined with the desire for constant attention and the inability to stop talking, stand-up comedy seemed inevitable. Michael combined his love of comedy and his obsession with Hollywood movies and trained under David Granirer, founder of Stand Up for Mental Health, to create his act ”Does This Make My Asperger’s Look Big?” Over the past 7 years Michael has performed at conferences, galas, universities, bars and church basements across Canada and the United States.See the world through his eyes as he takes you on a comical journey through the lighter side of Asperger’s Syndrome.

This event is part of Thrive Week 2020, a week-long series of events promoting mental health among McMaster staff, faculty, and students. To learn mroe about Thrive Week, visit http://wellness.mcmaster.ca/thrive
