Description:

The revised multi-award-winning show My Voices Have Tourettes RETURNS to FINFRINGE! 

My Voices Have Tourettes is a unique stand-up comedy show that features comedians with disorders and syndromes to raise awareness of mental health and neurological disorders in a fun way! The show was created for Reykjavík Fringe 2018 by HED Syndrome, a group consisting of one comedian with schizophrenia (Hannah Proppé Bailey) and two comedians with Tourette syndrome (Elva Dögg and Dan Zerin). With the show’s instant success and a news article after the first night, Voices became a weekly show at its home, The Secret Cellar (Iceland’s first and only comedy club).  

In 2019, the comedians were invited to speak at schools, they performed at private events and local mental health/neurological disorder organizations, hosted their first charity event called "Voices For Charity”, and performed Voices in three countries (Iceland, Finland, and Sweden). Voices has won awards in all three countries, and at the end of 2019, it was nominated for Hvatningarverðlaun (Motivational Award) at Öryrkjabandalag Ísland’s Award Ceremony. During the award ceremony, co-creator/host of Voices Dan Zerin performed a set right before the president of Iceland gave a speech to announce the winners. In his speech, the president personally thanked Dan for his performance and tireless efforts to improve the mental health/neurological community.
