Matt Hollins: I'm a Comedian, Let Me Out of Here!

On World Mental Health Day.

Many years ago, deadpan comedian Matt Hollins got nominated for a coveted national comedy award whilst he languished as an inpatient on a psychiatric ward. A month later he was discharged and performed in the live final... and won it! Adding his name to a list of former winners including Rhod Gilbert, Jason Manford and Johnny Vegas.

Surely anything was possible after that.

Or was it?

£1000 prize money, his first comedy agent and being paid to perform at the best clubs in the country isn't a magical cure to health problems, especially when you're on the wrong medication!

A tale of falling down, getting up and falling down again - one comedians battle with mental health problems.
