An honest and humorous look at mental health
Going to just about any comedy show is great as you get to relax and have a laugh! However, this comedy show titled Humpty Dumpty Daddy went further then just laughs; it shared an important story about mental health issues in men. Even though mental health is a serious issue, Joel Clapham was able to approach this subject in a way that was both light and funny.

Comedian Joel Clapham

The comedy show explores his journey from childhood to adulthood and fatherhood in an honest yet amusing manner! Not to give too much away but the joke about the goat had me laughing all the way home. Yet it also had me thinking about the struggles that men with mental illness go through! Perfectly balancing the serious issue with light humor.

I can therefore highly recommend seeing Joel Clapham at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival or any other show in the future! You won't be disappointed by this very honest and funny comedian.
