Depression. It’s no laughing matter. Or is it? Why are so many of our best loved comedians depressed? I trance in and out exploring this tragi-hilarious topic with award-winning cartoonist, depressed humorist and best-selling author, the irrepressible Larry Feign: creator of the iconic Lily Wongcomic strip published in the South China Morning Post. Larry was the first cartoonist to have a full-page spread in Time Magazine, worked in animationfor Walt Disney Studiosand is the international best-selling authorof 15 comic books and children’s book series The Fart Brothers, which he sensibly writes under the pen name M.D. Whalen because he doesn’t want to be too closely associated with flatulence.
The Mental Ideas Podcast is a series of podcasts in which Miss Adventure’s shady second cousin, twice removed, Sadie Kaye explores innovative approaches to tackling mental health with an eclectic mix of local and international guests, many of whom are from the worlds of entertainment, film, the arts & charity. The podcast launches as a weekly strand of RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Showin 2020. Gentleman juggler and showman Mat Ricardo presents a number of outstanding slots!
