Mental As Anyone

MAA #042: With JC Clapham

Dec. 2, 2016

Interview with the open and authentic JC Clapham, who has been performing comedy since January this year.  He jumped right in with the RAW competition, and then performed a solid 50-minute Melbourne Fringe show in September titled Humpty Dumpty Daddy.  JC also appeared on MAA’s current favourite TV show, Hard Quiz, a couple of weeks ago.   You can catch JC at the Adelaide Fringe from 13-18 March, and at the 2017 MICF with two shows (a refined Humpty Dumpty Daddy, and a second show titled I’m A Futurist And Even I Don’t Know What That Means).

We discuss: Major life events from mid-2016, support from the Beyond Blue phone line, reflections on oversharing about mental health, changes with work, family background and Dad’s suicide when JC was aged 16, reflections on the relationship with his Dad, sharing mental health issues on social media and messages of support from around the world, healthy sharing of emotions with his children, professional and personal self-care, stew ingredients, recent appreciation of quotes and memes, JC’s super powers, learning patience and locus of control, and JC’s message to be open and authentic. neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
