They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
However, what do you do when the doctor in question is also an expert in healthcare humor? Can you keep them at bay?
The concept of healthcare comedy may not be among the best-known ones, and that is because not many use it as such.
Brad Nieder MD, the speaker we are featuring here, is among the ones who have created this niche in the entertainment industry. So, let us cast an eye on what his act brings to the table.
Brad Nieder MD, The Funny Doctor
If you tried to imagine a ‘Jerry Seinfeld with an M.D.’, you would get Brad Nieder.
Having grown up seeing Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show on TV, Brad already felt he had an inclination towards humor, and so he took on a B.A. in Communication at Stanford University. There, he spent extensive time among his peers from SIMPS – The Stanford Improvisers – and also performed improv comedy at local comedy clubs.
He went on to pursue positions in TV productions at CKNC-TV and Lifetime Television.
His next career option, however, was studying medicine at the University of Colorado, all while sticking to his standup comedy skills and performing in front of audiences.
Perhaps this is what explains his decision to marry standup comedy with medical practice and develop the Healthy Humorist brand in 2002.
