Event Description

Award winning producer, writer, performer and director, Rick Green, (The Frantics, The Red Green Show, History Bites) brings his one-man show to Cracking Up The Capital.

Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder just in time for the Y2K Crisis of 2000, Rick went on to become an advocate and educator for people with ADHD. He received the Celebrity Transforming Lives Award from the CAMH Foundation for his documentary ADD & Loving it?! (Global Television, PBS) and worldwide acclaim for his companion website,

In his live show, Rick explores what this ‘disorder’ really is, why it’s so misunderstood, and why many adults who get the diagnosis are actually relieved, hopeful, and even excited. Rick has helped hundreds of thousands of adults and children to understand what’s ‘wrong’. With laughter, Rick explains the power and peril of the ADHD mindset. The message is profound but simple: “I used to suffer from ADHD. Now, I just have it.”
