Before we come to our own passing of life on Earth, death will undoubtedly affect every single person yet it’s often considered taboo or uncomfortable to talk about but Chelsea London Lloyd is here to change that narrative. Chelsea is an actor, comedian, grief activist, grief support volunteer, and podcast host of Dying of Laughter where she shares her healing journey in growing up with two sick parents. Chelsea’s dad died of ALS after a 15 year journey and her mom currently combats stage 4 metastatic breast cancer for the second time.
In this episode, Ashley and Chelsea discuss Chelsea’s childhood and her personal experience of growing up with two sick parents and ultimately losing one at the age of 19, some difficult and challenging questions we can ask our loved ones when it comes to death, how she intertwines humor, comedy, and grief, why she started her own grief group, and some incredible resources for grieving and loss.
Chelsea grew up in extensive musical theatre since childhood. Her recent credits include SCHOOLED (ABC) and BARRY (HBO) with director Bill Hader and her sassy, self-deprecating humor has made her a stand-out in viral videos on BuzzFeed and Funny or Die. Dying of Laughter includes interviews with grief counselors, funeral directors, cancer survivors, previvors, therapists, life coaches, oncologists + genetic counselors to name a few.
