Neil Crone

A dog, a priest and a rabbi walk into an oncology clinic...

Improvisers are trained to never say 'no', to never block or negate an idea. Instead, like comic ascetics, they are drilled in the 'Rule of Yes', trained to take any offer; good, bad, stupid or, in Neil's case, a stage 3 colo-rectal cancer diagnosis, and to run with it. To throw energy and unbridled enthusiasm into it and see where it takes them. And above all...to enjoy the ride. And what a ride it is. In an uplifting and often side-splitting presentation Neil describes how the two seemingly disparate milestones in his life, learning to improvise and receiving the 'gift' of cancer, dovetailed into one glorious and wonderfully life-altering epiphany.
