If laughter really was the best medicine, Gavin Crawford would have cured his mother of Alzheimer’s disease.

As a son, his mother’s dementia has been devastating. As a comedian though… it’s been sort of funny. Honestly, how do you respond when your mom confuses you with her teenage crush and wants you to take her to the high-school dance?

Well, you laugh. Because it’s the only thing you can do.

In this seven-part series, Gavin tells the story of losing his mother — his best friend and the inspiration for a lot of his comedy — to a disease that can be heartbreaking, but sometimes also hilarious.

He’s joined by comedian friends who share their experience caring for family members with dementia. The result is a cross between an improv act and a support group.

Part memoir, part stand-up, part meditation on grief and loss, Let’s Not Be Kidding is a dose of the very best medicine for anyone dealing with hard times.
