About this Event

The launch of Canned Laughter - It's OK Not To Be OK, produced and presented by Andrew Eborn, attracted a capacity crowd to Equity's Guild House on 18th July. The extremely long waiting list for the event is a testament to the importance of this initiative.

As a result of the tremendous demand and extensive media coverage the next event on 7th October has been moved to a much larger venue, The Bloomsbury Ballroom - London's opulent art deco venue. Situated on the beautiful Bloomsbury Square, The Bloomsbury Ballroom is ideally located between the West End and The City.

Andrew Eborn is committed to continuing to raise the profile of mental health in the Arts, as well as removing its stigma and has already secured another great lineup of speakers for the next Canned Laughter event on 7th October with a new feature "Ask the Psychotherapist".

The launch event was opened by Maureen Beattie, President of Equity.

Andrew Eborn interviewed an impressive list of guests from the industry and medical profession including:
