Salon Talks: Chris Gethard

Comic Chris Gethard opens up to Salon about his darkest moments, including his experiences with depression and suicidal thoughts, and his HBO special where he confronts them head on, "Chris Gethard: Career Suicide."

"I feel more responsibility with this than with any other comedy I've ever done," Gethard told Salon. Since performing the one-man show over 200 times in three years, Gethard says he sees a shift in how young people talk about mental health and how it's portrayed in pop culture. Watch the video above to hear why Gethard created the show and his obsession with conversation, which he explores in his podcast “Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People."
