Social Distancing

Friday 14th August 2020

Comedian Ben 'Tito' Caldwell spent five weeks of lockdown with his wife and six children and amazingly he lived to tell the tale! In fact, he became one of these annoying, positive, productive people during the enforced stay at home that people liked to bitch about on social media. But the experience wasn't without some stressful moments. Things like toilet training, puberty and death don't pause just because you're in the middle of a pandemic. But finding the funny side of things is what helped Tito make it through. It's what he has done throughout his whole life when the world around him is falling to pieces. And it's not just a COVID-19 that Aotearoa has just had to contend with over the past decade. The country has experienced more than its fair share of disasters, from the earthquakes, tornados, floods, explosions, mass murders and John Key as Prime Minister. Tito examines some of these awful experiences, the light he was able to find in them and why gallows humour can be therapeutic and necessary.
