On Being Just Crazy Enough

On Being Just Crazy Enough

Joshua Walters is a bipolar comedian and performer who uses the stage to explore his relationship with madness.

In 2011, he gave a short TedTalk entitled, “On being just crazy enough”. In this witty, thought-provoking set that uses humour to combat stigma, Walters speaks candidly about a delicate balance between mental illness and what he calls ‘mental skillness’, asking the important question: What’s the right balance between medicating craziness away and riding the manic edge of creativity and drive?
