How Bovi prevented depressed fan from committing suicide with his jokes
Comedian Bovi has shared how his jokes prevented a depressed fan from going ahead with committing suicide.
A screenshot shared by Bovi shows the fans revealing how a YouTube video showing the comedian doing his thing saved him from committing suicide.
According to the fan, he had a deadly insecticide called Sniper under his bed which he intended to use to take his own life.
Glad that he was able to help without even knowing, Bovi wrote:
“I get mails like this all the time. I remember vividly my prayer to God when I started stand-up comedy professionally; “dear God, I don’t just want to make people laugh. I want to make them happy”. Mental health issues are real. Let’s not think people are bluffing all the time. Even people who threaten to take their lives but don’t also need help. Lastly, happiness is a choice. Let’s always remember that”.
