About the Event
"What's So Funny" is a stand-up comedy show focused on bringing awareness to mental health struggles, like anxiety, depression, substance abuse and more. The presenters will raise awareness through talking/joking about their own struggles. We also have a clinical psychologist as the emcee who will put the jokes/conversation into context when needed. Our goal is to laugh, raise awareness and leave the audience feeling hopeful.
Dr. Matt Bellace, clinical psychologist, comedian, and nationally renowned speaker on mental health and his guest comedians (Joe Matarese & Carmen Lynch) will involve the audience in this standout, stand-up comedy show. For more information about Matt Bellace, visit www.mattbellace.com. Click HERE to watch the trailer.

All proceeds above our cost will directly benefit drug and alcohol prevention education and mental wellness initiatives within our community. This show is appropriate for adults, but high school-aged students are welcome with a parent or guardian.
