Life is a Death Dyfing Act
Preventing Suicide by speaking truth to the power of depression, and thoughts of suicide on behalf of those powerless in its grip and their loved ones

The goal of my Suicide Prevention keynote, is to give people permission to say the words depression, bipolar, and suicide out loud, without recrimination, and to create a common pool of knowledge surrounding depression and suicide, in which those who suffer, and those who love them, can swim. To do as comedians everywhere do, speak truth to power, on behalf of the powerless. In this case, speak truth to the power of depression, and thoughts of suicide, on behalf of those powerless in its grip, and those who love them. And do it by coming out, as it were, and standing in my truth, as one who has battled depression, and thoughts of suicide for as long as I can remember. And doing all of that with humor. I believe where there is humor there is hope, and where there is laughter there is life, and that nobody dies laughing. Somebody just needs to start the conversation, somebody has to lead the charge. Or, as Big and Rich say in their song: "Somebody just needs to be un-afraid to lead the freak parade." I'm a suicide prevention and motivational/inspirational speaker and comedian who has written jokes for Jay Leno, Joan Rivers, and Dennis Miller. Was featured on CNN's Business Unusual, and Showtime's Comedy on the Road. Is an award winning, syndicated humor columnist and radio talk show personality. And I was a Quarter-Finalist on the Original Star Search with Ed McMahon...lost to a puppet...yes, a puppet... Now THAT was depressing!
