011: MICHAEL CONNELL – THE FUNNY WAY TO DEAL WITH THE SERIOUS ISSUE OF BULLYING
The word ‘bully’ is used way more commonly today than when Michael Connell was a boy but bullying existed all the same. Michael describes the impacts of bullying, the severity of what he experienced, and how he managed to cope. As a stand up comedian now Michael Connell has even experienced apologies from former bullies after his shows. He shares about his experiences of bullying, how he coped, his advice for others and how having a girlfriend is impacting his comedy.
The humble brag is also discussed in today’s show. Celebrities seem to do this on social media often, but is it as bad as it appears?
