Candice is joined by the founders behind Comedy Gives Back, a nonprofit organization that seeks to provide a “safety net for the comedy community by providing financial crisis relief, mental health and chemical dependency treatment sponsorship and continued community support”. Zoe Friedman, Amber J Lawson, and Jodi Lieberman all found their own ways into loving and working in comedy (just not on stage - they’ll leave that to the artists). But they decided to join forces in 2019 after the tragic suicide of beloved comedian Brody Stevens, who openly had struggled with mental health as many other comedians presently do.
After a pandemic and now Hollywood strikes that have put many projects on hold, Comedy Gives Back serves as a safe space and place of great resource to the artists that work so hard to make sure we can still laugh despite life’s everyday challenges.
