* Kevin Macdonald and Dave Foley of ''Series/TheKidsInTheHall'' are both this to varying extents. MacDonald was struggling with depression and a divorce while making the film ''Brain Candy'' (ironically about a drug that makes people happy). Foley has been like this since his marriage collapsed, his career declined and he started owing hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support. If he ever returns to his native Canada, he could very well be arrested. * John Cheese of ''Cracked'' has long been like this due to his struggles with alcoholism, poverty, parental abuse and depression. Despite this, his writing often reflects on such things in an extremely funny light and he has repeatedly claimed that he doesn't blame others for his problems and uses his writing to let people in similar situations know that they are not alone and things can get better.

He was also insufferable to work with, according to many ''Film/CarryOn'' actors, and was briefly fired from a film project for being a diva.

* Comedian KennethWilliams (known for his appearances in ''Radio/HancocksHalfHour'' and the ''Film/CarryOn'' movies) was depressed for most of his adult life, and wrote about it, as well as suicidal thoughts, in his diaries. This was mostly due to his homosexuality and beliefs of being the only one suffering from {{gaynst}} (he frequently wrote that other gay men seemed to be dealing with it better than he was). He died in 1988 after overdosing on antidepressants, making many debate whether it was an accident or not.

* More than a few members of the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} have opened up about suffering from mental health issues: ** LetsPlay/ZoeyProasheck has openly admitted to being depressed at various points in her life despite her supposedly being ThePollyanna. ** LetsPlay/SimonLane is best known for being one half of the main channel and the main goofball of the group. However, he appeared to suffer from a CreatorBreakdown in early 2015, which culminated in him insulting former friend [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] and then mocking the Yogscast subreddit when they thought his behaviour was out of line. His declining health (both mentally and physically) forced him to take time out from March until September of 2015, and while he's on the mend his appearances on the main channel aren't as frequent as before. ** LetsPlay/LewisBrindley openly admitted that he was suffering from depression during a charity livestream in 2015. ** LetsPlay/InTheLittleWood is known by his fans for generally being upbeat and a good sport, but suffered from a breakdown in late 2014 which required him to take time out and drop out of a livestream he was meant to be hosting. He claimed that he had been depressed for some time and in denial about it.

* The TropeCodifer would be Emmett Kelly. His character Wearie Willie, was known for sweeping up the spotlight after the other performers and he won the hearts of audiences at a time when they expected clowns to make them laugh. He was an staple of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus for a good chunk of the Twentieth Century before going freelance.

* Implied to be the case with [[PungeonMaster Sans]] in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' and explicitly stated in the Genocide Route. [[spoiler:Sans is one of the few characters who is aware of the player's ability to load and save. As a result, he's become lazy and nihilistic - after all, why should he bother doing anything when it could all be reset on a whim?]] He eventually snaps out of this… [[spoiler:[[TheApocalypseBringsOutTheBestInPeople On a Genocide Run]], where you threaten the entirety of existence with your murderous intent.]]

* Seemingly [[Music/ChildishGambino Donald Glover]], at least going by his recent work (''Because The Internet'').
