Recovering from a drug addiction is nothing to laugh about. Or is it?
Stand up to drugs is a program being offered in New Westminster [B.C. Canada] this fall where the treatment is for recovering youth to tell jokes about using and recovering from drug addictions. The course will have them write their own jokes and routine and then perform it as a stand up comedian.
Counsellor and stand-up comic David Granirer is conducting the course through the Pacific Community Resources Society for youth aged 16 to 24 in New West and Abbotsford.
Comedy and laughter are great healers, said Granirer. More.
