In the week after news of Big Mouth star and writer Jak Knight's sudden passing at 28 broke throughout the world, authorities have now determined the cause of the comedian's death.
At this point, it's well-known that underneath the laughs and the seemingly constant jovial attitudes they're showing the world, many comedians are actually haunted by some serious darkness. And while this can sometimes refer to a life-threatening physical issue they don't want anyone to know about, it's sadly more common for them to suffer mentally.
And while that silent turmoil and its potentially tragic consequences are hardly unique to any one part of the entertainment industry, it's hard not to be reminded of that Robin Williams quote suggesting that the saddest people try to make others happy to protect them from the feelings they're experiencing.
Unfortunately, this discussion has attained some new relevance in the case of Jak Knight now that the facts behind his death have come in.
