A BRASSY comedian is to bring her humour to a clinic that treats people with depression.
Ruby Wax is to bring her Live from the Priory show to the hospital in Hayes Grove, Bromley next Monday.
The comedian and presenter, who suffered from debilitating depression in the 1990s, aims to challenge the illness in a show that promises to go "straight to the heart of darkness".
Using comedy and music, Wax and co-star folk jazz singer Judith Owen will share their insights into the world of depression, a condition which around one in five people in the UK will experience at least once in their lifetime.
Wax said: "This is a lifetime's work. And the idea of our show was not to be funny. But I think it's the funniest I've ever written."
