Happy Pills

Step into a world where vulnerability meets resilience, where laughter and tears coalesce, and where the intricacies of the human experience are brought to life through music, comedy, and confessions. 

HAPPY PILLS is a thought-provoking and emotionally charged multidisciplinary solo show that takes audiences on an intimate exploration of the highs and lows of Hannan Azlan’s career in comedy. Hurt. Hustle. Hope. Through a captivating fusion of original songs, true stories, and moments of levity, this solo show delves deep into the complexities of the human psyche.

It is a raw and unfiltered narrative that shines a spotlight on the universal struggles we all encounter. At its heart, this show unravels the intricate web of emotions tied to depression and the profound impact it has had in Hannan’s life. With poignant honesty, this show touches upon the paradox of seemingly having it all while battling the internal feeling of inadequacy, the delicate balance between weakness and strength. HAPPY PILLS is more than just a performance, it is an invitation to reflect on the complexities of our lives, to find solace in shared struggles, and to celebrate the triumphs we may take for granted. This show is an immersive journey that resonates with anyone who's ever felt the weight of their own expectations. It explores the dichotomy of success and the persistent feeling of falling short, shedding light on the internal dialogue that often goes unheard – the internal battle of feeling like a loser, even in the midst of winning. 

Experience the power of storytelling that defies convention, challenges perceptions, and ignites conversations about mental well-being.
