Jan Derbyshire: Funny in the Head
The rollicking story of a bipolar comedian’s fight to stay funny. From the initial diagnosis through the adjustment of being “funny in the head” and onto taking life itself as a joke. The comedian ultimately arrives at the answer to the pressing question:  Is appearing normal a mental health act???

“Jan is an artist who is wildly talented, imaginative, and energetic... She comes to theatre with a background in stand-up comedy and uses many stand-up techniques in her work. Jan’s plays are rooted in a deep fascination with a good story. Her style is very confident, funny and energizing”

(Playwrights’ Workshop, Montreal)
