Our Speaker

Gary Gulman is one of the most popular comics in the country. With humor, vulnerability, and honesty, Gary de-stigmatizes mental illness and offers hope for its treatment. In The Great Depresh, the combination stand-up special and documentary on HBO, Gary collaborated with Judd Apatow (The Jung Center’s 2021 Spring Benefit speaker) to tell the story of his depression with self-deprecation, candor, and a fresh, substantive perspective. We are happy to share, as Gary likes to say, that his depression is in remish.
