Chris Gethard: Career Suicide - 2016 - Off-Broadway

Chris Gethard: Career Suicide is a new comedy about depression, alcoholism, suicide, and the other funniest parts of life. Chris holds nothing back as he dives into his experiences with mental illness, psychiatry, and finding hope in weird places... even northern New Jersey. From devastating lows to manic highs, Chris Gethard: Career Suicide is a painfully honest journey into the mind of one of the most original and exciting comics at work today.



Directed by Kimberly Senior (Disgraced on Broadway, The Who And The What), Chris Gethard: Career Suicide will have scenic design by Brendan Boston (The Iceman Cometh), lighting design by Jen Schriever (Eclipsed on Broadway) and Trevor Dewey (The Coast of Utopia: Voyage), and sound design by Ryan Rumery (Fool For Love on Broadway).



Chris Gethard: Career Suicide marks Chris Gethard’s New York Stage debut.
