What's better than entertainment? Entertainment with a message, of course. With a premiere on the eve of Mental Illness Awareness Week, Gary Gulman, comic and actor speaks about mental health issues in both an entertaining and poignant fashion. The special is mixed with short documentary interludes that provide insight into the comedian’s own mental health journey. Gary doesn't shy away from the difficult subject of depression and aimes to destigmatize an issue that affects countless lives through his relatable comedy.
Gulman spent years trying to hide his depression from those closest to him, and details the extensive and sometimes radical treatments he’s undertaken in his journey of getting well. By talking about his mental health struggles, he hopes to help others feel more comfortable, less afraid and most importantly, less alone.
Gulman also humorously tackles relevant and topical subjects including bullying, masculinity, and sports. And he touches on some lighter topics like menacing TV news theme songs; and how his mother's voice is always in his head.
Gary Gulman is a two-time finalist on “Last Comic Standing.” His previous HBO credits include “2 Dope Queens,” “Crashing” and “Tourgasm” and he is soon to be seen in the upcoming film “Joker.”
Gary Gulman: The Great Depresh debuts Saturday, Oct. 5 (10:00-11:15 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO!!
