Marise Gaughan:
In 2014, Marise’s father killed himself, setting off a chain reaction that began with her placement on an ISIS watch list in Amsterdam and ended sharing a psych ward with Kanye West in L.A.They're both exaggerations to make you come to the show, but it's all based in truth from a very strange time in her life.

Drowning is an honest account of living with, and losing someone to, mental illness. It's also a comedy.

Stand-up comedy at its darkest about destructive choices made in a mental abyss. It’s about fathers, inner darkness, and the funny stuff that can happen even as the world around you goes to shit

Stephan Mullen:
From the church to the psych ward, Stephen's life started with Jesus and almost ended with the Tellytubbies. Childhood Sundays were for watching Dad deliver sermons and Mam lead evangelical worship time, but how was he going to survive being so uncool in '90s small-town Ireland?

In this debut stand-up comedy hour, he shares his coming-of-age story about a boy who was brought to the edge of his own life, and who lives to tell the hilarious tale of how sexcapades, drug overdoses and a surprise baby meant that he was, in his own way, born again.
