There are plenty of comedians who have not only made no secret of their problems, but built comedy around them. Maria Bamford and her mental illness, for example. There’s a blind comedian in the UK named Chris McCausland who has hilarious stuff about being blind. Richard Pryor did a whole lot on his substance abuse problem after he ended up hospitalized with serious burns from trying to freebase cocaine.

A lot of comedy comes from pain.

There was certainly something up in his life last year.

So far, the only live show I saw was the Time Bubble Tour. And let me tell ya: everyone was very funny during the show. For the next live show, I also hope to meet the cast, 'till I save enough.
