Laughing your ass off
The great thing about having Crohn’s or UC is that there is no shortage of jokes you can make about poop, farting, burping, gas, and all of the other immature slang terms that can be used to reference bodily excretions and noises from the rear end.
That being said, its no surprise that one comedian has embraced that. Ben Morrison has taken his battle with Crohn’s and turned it into a comedy show aptly named Pain in the Butt.
According to his website,
Pain in the Butt is comedian Ben Morrison’s critically-acclaimed show about the lighter side of Crohn’s Disease.
Chronicling Morrison’s journey from awkward high-school-student to awkward high-school-student with a poop disease, Pain in the Butt is the funniest show about severe intestinal disorder, ever. Having been staged all over the world during it’s amazing run Pain in the Butt is the the countries premiere theatrical experience about laughing through illness. Lovingly told with Morrison’s signature belend of stand-up and storytelling Pain in the Butt is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. You’ll laugh your butt off (toilet-paper not included).
If you ever need a pick me up, definitely check it out- you can watch some snippets of his show on his website or order the DVD of it. I’m sure if you searched hard enough, you could find some videos on YouTube as well.
