Feature interview - Luke Ryan

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:08 pm on 9 February 2015

When Australian stand up comic Luke Ryan was told he had cancer, it was like Ground Hog Day. He had fought the dreaded disease once when he was 11 and then when through the terrible ordeal again 11 years later. He says there is only one antidote when you have to slay the same dragon twice: humor. He writes about growing up, getting sick and getting sick again in his memoir- A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Chemo: A Memoir of Getting Cancer - Twice!
