Frank King, Suicide Prevention Speaker, a writer for The Tonight Show for 20 years, and a full-time standup comedian for 37 years. He’s fought a lifetime battle with Depression and Chronic Suicidality, turning that long dark journey into 8 TEDx Talks and insights on Mental Health Awareness (only one other person on the planet has 8 TEDx Talks…Bill Gates). Depression and suicide run in his family. He’s thought about killing himself more times than he can count. He’s come close enough to dying by suicide that he can tell you what the barrel of his gun tastes like… He uses his life lessons to start the conversation giving people permission to give voice to their feelings and experiences. He believes that where there is humor there is hope, where there is laughter there is life, nobody dies laughing.
