Come discover what health anxieties keep New York comedians up all night!
Hypochondriacs and victims of terrible insurance will relate to comedic stories of healthcare nightmares, ranging from homeopathic cures for yeast infections to at-home surgery.
Storytellers will share their experiences in self-diagnosis before a panel of actual doctors — who you can try to corner after the show for opinions on your rash! — but by the end of the night, only one comedian will receive an honorary white coat and proudly say, “I’m a doctor now!”
