Cracking up: Cori Gonzalez-Macuer on comedy as therapy
"Go out there and tell people," says Cori Gonzalez-Macuer (7 Days & What We Do in the Shadows) who wants people to open up more about their own life struggles. Cori is taking part in the mental health focused Inner Dialogue event at this year's Comedy Festival. He himself has had to cope with some of life's tough stuff - including his father's suicide, about which he made a powerful TED X talk. As well as the Inner Dialogue performance, Cori will be appearing at The Good Guys all-star charity comedy night and the Spanglish Comedy night. The NZ International Comedy Festival runs from 26 April - 20 May.
