Personality of John Wing
What can be said about John Wing that hasn’t already been said by a score of reporters, reviewers, and loan sharks?
CUTC: “Why is supporting mental health in our community important and how do you think laughter can help?”
JW: “Supporting mental health is important because those who suffer from mental health problems are not always as recognizable as those who suffer from more obvious disabling diseases and handicaps. And so we tend to dismiss the problems those people have or not give money and help to treat them, since they seem so ephemeral. Laughter is important because it alone relaxes your muscles, boosts your immune system, and sends pain-healing endorphins to all parts of you. Laughing at something requires you to understand it.”
