EP81 - Carl Donnelly - Death, divorce and stand up.

June 2, 2017

Carl Donnelly (@CarlDonnelly) is an English stand-up comedian, podcaster and writer. He has built an audience for his work and is known for being open and honest about his mental health. 

We talked about...

  • How long did it take him to go full time in comedy?
  • Do you think you were good enough when you went full time and do you know.
  • How does he cope with a bad gig?
  • Did he feel any responsibility when writing jokes about mental health?



This podcast would be great for anyone who is interested in the mental health and life of a full time stand up comedian as well as how linked the two are.
