I just did a TED Talk on Depression and Suicide (both run in my family) www.FrankTEDTalk.com If you know someone who suffers from depression, or someone who loves them, feel free to share this. If you know of groups for whom what I talk about would be useful, Veterans (22 a day are killing themselves), high school and college kids (third leading cause of death), Veterinarians (just surpassed dentists in the number of suicides annually), give me a holler I have a keynote, "Nobody Dies Laughing, Where's There's Laughter There Is Life, and Where There's Life, There's Hope." It’s one thing to hear a talk on depression and suicide from a mental health professional, it’s another to hear it from someone who knows the taste and feel of cold gun metal on the tongue I believe that it's the song I came to sing... Frank King, Speaker, Comedian, and Mental Health Activist

“Hey, did you hear the one about the comedian who had two heart valve replacements, a double bypass, and lived to joke about it?” Well you can, just book the Cardiac Comedian, Frank King. He was a quarter-finalist on “Star Search”…he lost to a puppet. He’s also appeared on A&E’s “An Evening at the Improv,” Showtime’s “Comedy Club Network,” and CNN’s “Business Unusual.” In addition to telling jokes he’s been busy selling jokes. He’s written for Jay Leno, Joan Rivers, and Dennis Miller. He’s opened up for Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Jeff Foxworthy, and Ron White, and most recently was himself opened up, by a crack team of cardiac surgeons, at the Oregon Heart and Vascular Institute…who, performed an aortic valve replacement, his second, and tossed in a double bypass, his first…so he truly is, Funny at Heart.
