Jeffrey Gurian is a Dentist, a Comedian, an Author, and a Healer. As a comedian and comedy writer, he is one of the most well known fixtures in the comedy world. You’ve seen him in clubs, at most comedy festivals, and at red carpet events interviewing top-tier celebrities for his Comedy Matters TV channel. Aside from being a physician and an icon of the comedy world, he is also a gifted healer.
Jeffrey Gurian has often been described as the dentist who went into Comedy. The famed New York Post Gossip Columnist Cindy Adams once said, “Jeffrey Gurian makes people laugh to see if they have any teeth missing.”
With everything he pursues, Jeffrey Gurian has always focused on putting positive energy out into the universe. Now during this time when we are in the midst of a raging pandemic and deep political, economic and cultural turmoil, Jeffrey is intent on helping us to conquer our fear. And who knows about fear more than a seasoned dentist?
His latest book Fight The Fear: Overcoming Obstacles That Stand In Your Way (The Happiness Series Book 2) looks directly into the eye of the tiger: FEAR has tried to stop me from achieving my goals! How about you? Have you ever not done something because you were afraid to try?
Fear is an essential element of being a human being. It’s normal to be afraid of what we do not know or trust. It’s also normal to be deeply afraid of things, people and circumstances that can hurt us. Jeffrey Gurian’s latest book is exactly what we need during this surreal time of intense fear and loathing. Jeffrey shows us how warmth, compassion for one’s self, and a sharp sense of humor soothes our innermost fears. Most important: Jeffrey gives us the tools that we need to live and act courageously in spite of fear.
We interviewed Jeffrey Gurian in January, 2018 regarding the publication of his first book in his Happiness Series. Healing Your Heart, By Changing Your Mind: A Spiritual and Humorous Approach To Achieving Happiness (The Happiness Series Book 1) Oct 14, 2017
Now more than ever, we need Jeffrey Gurian’s wisdom humor to guide us through a difficult and dark time in our culture.
