Drew Carey on depression…

The Drew Carey Show

Drew Carey (born May 23, 1958) in Cleveland, Ohio, battled depression as a young adult. In the Marine Corps Reserves, he found the structure and his signature style buzz-cut hair and heavy glasses.

At Kent State University in the ’70s, he encountered difficulties while struggling with depression. A suicide attempt had him expelled, eventually dropping college longing to pursue a career as a stand-up comedian. Traveling across the country trying his luck, his depression worsened, then in his early 20s, he attempted suicide once again.

In 1986, he met up with a childhood friend, who was also a DJ, and began writing comedy bits. This led to making rounds on comedy circuits, TV appearances, and ultimately “The Tonight Show”. The “Drew Carey Show” debuted in 1995, a fan favorite, later hosting “Who’s Line is it Anyway?”, and also in his career replacing Bob Barker on “The Price is Right”.

He’s also an active supporter of personal freedoms.

One thought on “Drew Carey on depression…”

  1. God bless you, Drew Carey. I have also been suicidal, having been Baker acted twice. Nobody but another person who has gone through this can truly understand the experience. You are a true inspiration – keep up the good work!
