A documentary by Carleen Kyle "Releasing the burdens of life through stand-up comedy"
After a series of family tragedies Carleen was left feeling traumatized and depressed. The appeal of hiding under the sheets soon wore off and she decided to do something to pull herself out of the malaise.
The memory of family members joking in some of the most horrible moments, using laughter to balm to their misery, made her wonder if she could heal herself with humour. So, she did what anyone in her wrong mind would do and took a stand-up comedy class.
The result is Heavy Heart Laughs, Carleen’s touching and funny journey to understanding her grief, her prairie roots and herself.
