    Michelle Hammer is a Schizophrenia Activist and spends her time passionately fighting stigma. She is an NYC native featured in the WebMD documentary Voices, which was nominated for a Tribeca X Award at the Tribeca Film Festival. Michelle was diagnosed with schizophrenia at 22 after a misdiagnosis of bipolar at age 18. At 27, Michelle decided to use her fearless personality to do something that could benefit the mental health community. In May 2015, she founded a mental health-focused clothing brand. Schizophrenic.NYC is a clothing brand with the mission of reducing stigma by starting conversations about mental health.

    Michelle started her interest in comedy when she was part of a Stand-Up For Mental Health show in New York City. Working with David Granirer, Michelle was able to turn her experiences of living with Schizophrenia into a hilarious comedy set. She says, “Turning past trauma into jokes has been my favorite form of therapy.”

    VENUE

    Kracking Up | A Crazy Night Of Mental Health Comedy

    21A Clinton Street, Manhattan, 10002. Caveat is fully accessible.

    We LOVE smart, joyfully-nerdy comedy. No disrespect to a classic pratfall and cream pie to the face, but that’s not what does it for us. We want our comedy to say something, mean something, punch up. We celebrate quick wits, sharp observations, and fast-thinking with a side-order of silly.

    BECAUSE LIFE’S ABOUT LEARNING,
    AND LEARNING’S BETTER WITH JOKES.
