    Essentially this is a collection of stories of people who have learnt stand up as a way of finding humour in their mental ill health. Interspersed with jokes they'd performed themselves. Some parts I found quite irritatingly praising of the individuals involved - other parts were some of the best accounts of mental illness I've read. Tara' s story in particular will stay with me.
