Chris Gethard will be on HuffPost Live this afternoon to talk about using comedy as therapy. Last week, he reached out on Tumblr to an anonymous, suicidal fan to talk about his own battles with depression, and it was a damn beautiful thing full of humanity and generosity.
He’ll be joined via webcam by comedian/writer Gabe Delahaye of the blog Videogum, as well as a professor of comedy rhetoric from Texas A&M and a fan or two.
Tune in today at 1:20 p.m. EST.
Wow. I just read the post linked up there, and it is a thing of raw, emotional beauty that deserves to be shared, especially with anyone feeling fragile, disconnected or hopeless. Pass it on.
