I’ve increasingly found myself logging into Tumblr to share photos, quotes, and videos from comedians who have passed away - several of which have been lost to suicide.
Many people have said this more eloquently than I have, but comedians and writers and performers.. we have it hard. If it was easy, everyone would do it. Write that down and tape it on your damn wall if you have to.
If you’re an artist, give yourself a break. If you have a friend who is an artist and struggling, give THEM a break. It’s exceedingly difficult to be alive and it’s not made any easier by being self-serious and critical. Let’s help each other.
