Do funny people suffer from depression? We need only recall news headlines of talents like Robin Williams and Richard Jeni to understand that comedians, despite their line of work, are frequently suffering from deep depression. In this episode Natalie dives into a fun and deep conversation with fellow Brit comedians Chris James and Jason Canning and the friends trade war stories on their own experiences with loneliness and depression. Shenanigans include Star Wars impressions and a sound-effects-off, and discussions range from alternative health therapies and juicing to the true size of Africa and the most profound question of all: can British accents sound sexy?
