Join Comedian Tanya Nicolle & Friends on May 23 at Upstreet Craft Brewing for a night of laughs in celebration of her debut comedy album, Crocnado.
Crocnado was taped before a live audience at The Guild in Charlottetown and features a compilation of material that Tanya has built over the last three years. The album explores her childhood, growing up on a bizarre farm in rural PEI; and now her life as an adult living with mental illness.
“I think it’s important for everyone to explore who they are, the hardships and wins that make us who we are today,” says Tanya, “and what better way to do that, than with comedy.”
Tanya also notes how important it is to continue to talk about mental health on PEI: “We’ve come so far, but we still have a long way to go. Depression and anxiety are now openly discussed, but many other mental illnesses and diagnoses are still stigmatized.” She believes that comedy is a vehicle to talk about difficult topics, and a way to bring people together. “When it comes to the heavy things in life, laughter is truly the best medicine.”
Catch Tanya and friends at Upstreet Craft Brewing, May 23 at 7 pm. Entry is only pay-what-you can-afford at the door. Reservations are encouraged as seating is limited. Visit tanyanicollecomedy.com for more information.
