Piss Funny & Healing | Rachel Berger - 772

View descriptionShare

Rachel Berger is one of Australia's leading comedians, and being the daughter of holocaust survivors, she has an acute awareness of trauma, both in a physical sense and a mental sense, and therefore a knack for turning even the most serious topics into opportunities for a good laugh.

As we discuss the nuances of comedy, Rachel delves into the heart of what makes something truly funny and ponders the question 'do we really need to avoid taboo topics for fear of offending these days?' According to Rachel, it's all about the intention behind the words. From challenging topics like mental health to the everyday absurdities of life, she demonstrates how humor can be a powerful tool for connection and healing.

The episode isn't just about laughs, though. It’s a deep dive into the transformative power of humor, especially for those who have faced trauma or difficult experiences. Rachel talks about her workshops where she empowers individuals, including first responders and others, to use stand-up comedy as a way to reclaim their stories and find strength in their voices.
