"My Voices Have Tourettes" is a unique Stand Up Comedy show that features comedians with disorders and syndromes to help raise awareness for mental health in a fun way! The show was created for Reykjavík Fringe 2018 by "HED Syndrome", a group consisting of one comedian with Schizophrenia (Hannah Proppé Bailey) and two comedians with Tourette Syndrome (Elva Dögg and Dan Zerin). With the show's instant success and a news article after the first night, the popular demand of Reykjavík citizens and traveling tourists led to "Voices" becoming a weekly show at it's home, The Secret Cellar (the first and only comedy club in Iceland).


After performing the show to packed crowds for a couple of months, HED Syndrome decided to add two more members to their family; Þórhallur Þórhallsson (Anxiety) and Carmela Torrini (Autism). All it took was one show for these two new family members to feel right at home. However, this family doesn't just stop there! "Voices" now regularly features Stefnir Benediktsson (Bipolar Disorder/Autism) and Steindor Haraldsson (Autism).

Since the success of Reykjavík Fringe and the show's continued residency at The Secret Cellar, "Voices" has been swimming through the Icelandic media and other media outlets outside of Iceland. The group has also been invited to perform gigs and speak at schools to promote the show and support mental health groups.


This is a one of a kind comedy show you don't want to miss!
