RyGuy Comedy presents Mental HELLth, a comedy showcase where comedians find the humour in their challenges with mental health and addiction.
We also are proud to announce that net proceeds from the show will be donated to the CAMH Foundation! We are THRILLED to be supporting all of their amazing mental health initiatives!
This showcase is hosted by Ryan Zeitz - aka The RyGuy - a comedian, peer support worker, and mental health advocate living with bipolar disorder. This show is very near and dear to Ryan, as comedy has been such a helpful creative outlet to channel his personal struggles with mental health into laughter and healing.
The purpose of this showcase is to provide a safe and supportive environment for both the comedians and the audience to explore sensitive material that will hopefully achieve a similar catharsis for all.
CONTENT WARNING: Comedians on this show will be discussing sensitive subject matter related to mental health including, but not limited to: substance abuse, depression, mania, anxiety, disordered eating, suicidal ideation, etc.
The Sunrise Challenge presented by Sun Life invites Canadians to wake up with the sun for 5 days (May 30 to June 3) while raising vital funds for CAMH. By rising together and rallying our friends, family, and co-workers behind the cause, we can change the way the world sees and treats mental illness.
