Description

What is "Laughing Like Crazy"?

Laughing Like Crazy is a presentation featuring stand-up comedy performances by the newest graduates of Guelph’s Laughing Like Crazy Program completed in 2019. Writing comedy about experiences in the mental health system is crazy. That's why we do it.

Background

Laughing Like Crazy was officially created in June 2010; however, the core of its programming goes back to 2005 when it began as the Toronto chapter of David Granirer's Stand Up for Mental Health (Vancouver). The Toronto program was founded by Michael Cole (LLC Director, 2005-2011) who combined his lifetime of comedy writing, theatre, and arts experience with his experience as a peer support facilitator. After completing the program herself, Emma Árdal joined Michael as a co-facilitator in 2008. Emma became the Program Director when Michael Cole retired in December 2011.
