Featured performers include:

Melanie Vesey (Actress/comedian - Man On The Moon, The Comedy Store)

Plus two HUGE - A-list Celebrity comedians!

Your host and producer is Mara Shapshay (comedian/writer/mental health advocate who writes for LA Magazine, The Huffington Post and Glamour Magazine and performs regularly at The Comedy Store). Dr. Jennifer Palladino from the You Rock Foundation (a mental health organization that has rock stars speak out about their mental illness and addiction for suicide prevention) is Mara's co-producer.

The show is dedicated to Mara's late friend and housemate, Carrie Fisher. Mara wrote an article about their relationship for LA Magazine that went viral, resulting in her continuing on Carrie's work as a mental health advocate. In the name of Carrie Fisher, let's end the stigma against mental health and addiction, now!

The mission of This Is My Brave is to end the stigma associated with mental health and addiction. We do this by putting on successful shows around the country where those suffering from mental disorders and addiction can bravely tell their story.


Our 2017 national sponsors include: Alkermes, Talkspace and Lundbeck. Local Sponsor: Psychological Care & Healing Center
