Rave Reviews

Your presentation at Alternatives was awesome, as you could tell by the prolonged standing ovation and all the people who lined up to talk to you afterwards. People were really moved and inspired by the work you do, and also had some great laughs. You truly are on the cutting edge of mental health programs for recovery and public education.

Joseph Rogers, Executive Director, National Mental Health Consumers’ Self-Help Clearinghouse


Your presentation was everything we expected and more. You had the audience laughing and engaged right from the beginning. The work you do is phenomenal, and it’s so great to see how people can use comedy as a powerful tool in their recovery, as well as a way to combat stigma in the general public.

Our people were all raving about how amazing your presentation was. It was the perfect combination of humor and education. What you’ve been doing with mental health consumers is truly incredible. Your program should be offered everywhere.

Michael Hlebechuk, Oregon Department of Human Services, Addictions and Mental Health Division (AMH)


The feedback from David’s keynote and workshop was excellent.  People enjoyed themselves while learning a unique technique to combat stigma.  The work David does, teaching other people to use stand-up comedy, is amazing and empowering.  One of the best Keynotes we’ve ever had.

We’ve been flooded with great feedback from the comedy performance and documentary screening you did for us. People loved the way you found the humor in your mental health experiences and had us all laughing non-stop. Your work is funny and inspiring and a great way to educate the public about mental illness. Who would have thought a presentation on such a serious topic could be so much fun?
