can't wait to listen, laugh, and leave you inspired to give from the

worthy cause and really enjoy working with the Comedy Courage team. I

2013 DINNER HOST SPEAKERS
As Mayor of the City of Surrey, I am pleased to see the outpouring of support for this unique and one-of-a-kind event. It's encouraging to know that so many people are very focused on helping people with mental health diagnoses/issues in this way.
I'm excited to be a part of a major event like Comedy Courage it's an uplifting and beneficial program and I am honoured to help host Canada’s Largest Comedy Benefit Concert in support of Mental Health Wellness.
As a councillor for the City of Surrey I am honoured to be a dinner host speaker. My vision is that every resident has the right to belong, and that all are welcome. I believe it is through understanding our differences that we can see our commonalities.
Through the looking glasses of the 2013 Courageous Comics we will see our commonalities and that from time to time we recognize that we all have mental health issues. On show night it will be a rare connecting of souls.
Comedy Courage is the first
program of its kind in Canada to teach people with mental health diagnoses
and issues how to write a comedy routine about their own personal journeys
to mental health wellness and deliver it before a live audience!
What began as a slow growing dream has turned into “Canada's Largest Comedy Benefit Concert” in support of Mental Health Wellness.
Comedy Courage’s vision is to empower individuals with mental health diagnoses and/or issues to discover their comedic talent and to use this talent to educate, create awareness, break the stigma of what it means to have a mental health diagnosis and to raise funds so we can continue to support people living with mental health diagnoses and/or issues.
Comedy Courage is proud to announce that in 2007 Canada Revenue Agency granted us our own national non-profit status in a record 7 weeks which made Canadian History so we can continue spreading awareness across Canada. Comedy Courage is also registered in British Columbia as a Society.
