Cancer is the modern-day bogeyman. It's so scary that some people don't even like to say the word, let alone have a laugh about it. But when comedian André Vincent was diagnosed with cancer of the kidney in March 2002, all he could think about was the potential for some really great stand-up material. André decided to include cancer in his act and, judging from the responses of some of his audience, found comedy to be an interesting way to tackle such a taboo subject. Hurrah For Cancer is an intimate, positive and humour-filled personal take on living with the disease. Following André from diagnosis to treatment, it is essentially about the old adage that if you laugh at the bogeyman, he's not nearly so scary.
