RyGuy Comedy presents Mental HELLth, a comedy fundraiser where professional stand-up comedians find the humour in their lived experience with mental health and addiction.

Tickets are available at

Please join us for a hilarious evening of comedy that will both entertain and inspire, all while raising money for an amazing cause! I am proud to announce that all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to CAMH, the Centre For Addiction And Mental Health!

This showcase is hosted by me, Ryan Zeitz - aka The RyGuy. I am a comedian, peer support worker, and mental health advocate living with Bipolar Disorder and ADHD.

This show is very near and dear to me, because not only is CAMH Canada's largest mental health hospital... It is also the hospital that saved my life. I was admitted to inpatient psychiatric care at CAMH for 7 weeks in the summer of 2020, and even after my discharge, I have continued to receive ongoing care and support, and I wouldn't be where I am today without CAMH. I cannot even begin to repay the immense debt of gratitude that I owe this amazing organization… But this show is my small way of giving back.

CONTENT WARNING: Comedians on this show will be discussing sensitive subject matter related to mental health including, but not limited to: substance abuse, depression, mania, anxiety, disordered eating, suicidal ideation, hospitalization, etc.


Hosted by:

Ryan Zeitz - your favourite Bipolar Babe!


Dan James - a comedian and writer featured in Vanity Fair, USA Today, BuzzFeed, and the CBC!

Courtney Gilmour - a 2023 JUNO Award nominated comedian, television writer, and Canada's Got Talent finalist!

And your Headliner, ALEX WOOD!

Alex Wood has performed at the Montreal Just For Laughs festival 3 times. In 2022 he was featured on CBC’s Comedy Night with Rick Mercer. In 2019 he was a finalist in Sirius XM’s Top Comic. Wood has appeared with some of the biggest names in comedy and has been featured on Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, CBC, Sirius XM, and Starz, and had a comedic memoir on sobriety “Float Like a Butterfly, Drink Mint Tea” published with Arsenal Pulp in 2021.
