Suicide Buddies takes suicide seriously, but comedy even more so.
It’s half-laughing in the face of death and half-urging you to be good to yourself, because Dave and Hampton are alive, and they want you to stay alive, and they’re hoping a full hour of the world’s darkest jokes will help.
If you’re into dark comedy, as the title may suggest, this may be your kind of podcast. Each show they outline and analyse one suicide in history and share their own thoughts and experiences with suicide.
Suicide Buddies is a podcast by two stand-up comedians. Hampton Yount is a comedian, writer and amateur Olive Garden, enthusiast. He’s also on MST3K. Dave Ross is a comedian in Los Angeles. He does standup, he tours, he’s been on television a few times, and his cat is mean.
In the episode below Hampton and Dave discuss the life and suicide of serial killer Jeanne Weber. More specifically, she was a serial child murderer, who got away with it by relying on people’s disbelief that a mother could kill children. Any way, the episode is fun!
