Joey Pants And "No Kidding, Me Too!" Head To Iraq


I’ve mentioned Joey Pants a couple of times here at Celebrity Psychings, but in case you need brought up to speed: In addition to being a pretty well-known face on the big screen, Joey Pants – along with a slew of other celebs – is on a mission to stomp out the stigma of mental illness with his organization No Kidding, Me Too! (NKM2).

To help spread the word about NKM2’s mission, the importance of mental health awareness, and how his own experiences with mental illness led to his involvement with mental health advocacy, Pants has spent this year touring the country with his new documentary (also titled “No Kidding, Me Too!”) and sitting for question and answer sessions with viewers.

However, today Pants is taking the tour international and spending 12 days in Iraq with America’s troops, and this past Saturday he hosted a live broadcast on Ustream to discuss the event. (If you didn’t see the broadcast, you can watch the recording from NKM2’s front page.) Over the next 12 days, Pants will basically live in our troops’ barracks when he’s not traveling via Black Hawk to host twice-a-day viewings of the documentary and hold discussion sessions with the soldiers about his experiences, their experiences, and coping mechanisms.

I watched the broadcast Saturday and, simply put, was so amazed and impressed with Pants’ raw candor. From his morning bathroom habits (and I’m putting that lightly) to his daily antidepressants, there was very little Pants didn’t address.

  1. I want to buy this DVD…I saw him on Bonnie Hunt and I thought Joe said buy it on Amazon. Does anyone know how I can purchase this documentary?

    THX

  2. @ LJ – I snooped around a little and found two places where you can get the documentary:

    1. From Amazon, currently for $13.49. (CLICK HERE for the link; it’s not an affiliate link, i.e. I don’t make any money if you buy it from there.)

    2. From the NKM2 Website after making a $50 donation to the organization. Just visit the main NKM2 page, scroll down a smidge, and you’ll see it under “News/Announcements.”

    Hope that helps!

  3. Want to know if Joe’s film is being sceen at Tribeca Film Festival!
    Met him once, as I suffer from this diease, Yes Actress but not a Celeb.
