Functioning Psycho – A Stand-Up Tragedy by Rob Santos
What do you get when a Ted Talk and a stand up comedian meets trauma? Stand-Up Tramedy. Welcome to Functioning Psycho.
In this revealing piece that Rob Santos has penned “stand up tramedy”, he divulges the traumatic moments of the tough times of his life by measuring his own experiences with those of his young daughter Brooklyn.
Rob touches on subjects such as, identity, race, fatherhood, his own mental health journey, and the jarring truth of being jealous of his girlfriend for receiving a certain type of love for having a cancer diagnosis.
Despite these hardships, Rob manages to bring a brutally honest, introspective, but loving acceptance over what he has overcome.
